Brixham Pirate Festival 2017
The Brixham Pirate Festival is an annual gathering of the world’s most infamous pirates and lowly scallywags.
Located in the historical port of Brixham in South Devon, the festival has gone from strength to strength over the past 8 years and 2017 aims to be better than ever!
There will be LOTS of pirates, military and period reenactors here with guns to make plenty of noise! We will make sure there is plenty of music too with shanties and pirate rock to keep ye hoppin’. Buskers, jugglers and other entertainers will perform around the streets and harbour of Brixham. There will be other shows, reenactments and events around the town through the weekend.
The festival will take place throughout the town with main stage right next to the Golden Hind boat in the inner harbour.
We aim to make the festival suitable for everyone and all ages. There will be events for the kids to watch and take part in, and historical reenactments and plays during the day. Fancy dress competition for young children. Music to suit all tastes during the day and more music in the (pirate filled) pubs in the evening. There will be GUNS & MUSIC so it might be LOUD!
This is how it works:-
Whilst the festival is free to all and all our welcome, it does cost a substantial amount to run each year, this is why we have decided to open a GoFundMe page.
Every penny we collect goes back into operating the festival, and every penny over from this years' Brixham Pirate Festival goes into the next years' festival.
Each and every donation is appreciated and helps us to provide for a memorable experience for all who attend.
As a thankyou for donating to our GoFundMe page, we will be holding a prize draw of everyone who has donated, and also a special prize to whomever makes the largest donation leading up to the 2017 festival.
Prizes to be announced soon!
