Ahoy, Me Hearties! If you’re looking for a day of swashbuckling fun that’s sure to put a yo-ho-ho into your young buccaneer’s summer, then look no further.
Adventurers can expect a day packed full of themed activities and competitions on Friday, 11th August. The fun will commence on the grassed area between Manor Walks West Mall entrance and Concordia Leisure Centre between 11am and 3pm.
Children can dress up as their favourite pirate or princess and have the chance to meet some of their sea-savvy, swashbuckling heroes and enchanted fairy-tale heroines.
Little seadogs will be able to join in pirate party games with Captain Jack Sparrow and enjoy storytelling courtesy of Captain Raggy Beard.
The pint-sized pirates can also look forward to face-painting, fairground rides and go on an in-centre treasure hunt for pieces of eight.
Meanwhile, if princesses and pixies are more their thing, they can also have their photo taken with Tinkerbell and Princess Ariel.
Bless my barnacles, there’ll even be treasure for the best-dressed pirate and princess!!!
It’s the seventh consecutive year that the event has been staged.
Ellie Jones, Marketing Engagement Officer at Manor Walks in Cramlington, Northumberland, said: “We’re really excited about hosting Pirate and Princess Day again this summer. It’s a real calendar event that everyone looks forward to every year – and this year has the WOW factor!
“Families can make a day of it by joining in the fun and games on the grassed area, getting their face painted, taking part in the in-centre treasure hunt (not forgetting to stop and grab something yummy off the BBQ!). And if that isn’t enough, families can enjoy a meal at one of many eateries.”
Shiver me timbers! Manor Walks sure has a wealth of activities the whole family can enjoy during the summer holidays!
