Sheppey Pirates Weekend

04 Aug 2017 - 06 Aug 2017

Friday night is an open air cinema, normally with a pirate theme, so lots of and cheering involved. 

Saturday is the pirate water landing and massive water bomb fight. The fun and games continues into the evening where people can party like a pirate and listen to the sounds of local bands providing free entertainment.

Sunday is "live like a pirate" with historical demonstrations, explosive battle re-enactment and much more fun. 

We are also hoping that on the Sunday there will be boat racing going on, so anyone can have a go and join a crew and see if they can out pace other scratch crews.

Over the whole weekend there is a collection of fun fair rides and stalls.

For more information go to the Sheppey Pirates website.

Camping is available and enquiries can be made at the Boat House Cafe.
