Pirate Half Term
Prepare yourself for more side splitting jokes and merriment this half term when the Pirates come to the Fleet Air Arm Museum.
Every day from Monday 11th to Friday 15th February there will be some fearsome family activities.
Children are encouraged to come in fancy dress. They'll be shown how to draw a pirate map in 'blood' using a quill pen and make a variety of Pirate accessories including cutlasses, telescopes, hats and eye patches.
Capin' Jack Sparrow lookalike and his scurvy shipmates will put on a stage show and sing-a-long and there'll be lessons in learning to live and speak like a pirate!
Although the week is intended to be alot of fun for the whole family, there will be a serious side too, with representatives from the Royal Navy's 815 Squadron who will give a talk on the problem of modern day piracy.
Normal Museum admission prices apply and you may use your Gift Aid Membership. Activities are free of charge and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
