Purbeck Pirates Festival

We are all getting very excited about the first every Purbeck Pirates Festival.

There's been much "arrgghhing" and swashbuckling in the Wyke Dorset Cottages office in preparation for the weekend of 29th to 31st July when the town will be invaded by Captain Jack Sparrow, Long John Silver, Captain Hook and all their crew. There will be battles, skirmishes, sword fighting, muskets and cannon fire, storytelling, music and a Pirate Rum Bar. You can walk the plank and visit Davy Jones' Locker whilst searching for the Treasure Trove. The Swanage Carnival Parade on Sunday will be the focus of much "ahoying" and "avasting me hearties".

On Saturday, Wyke Dorset Cottages are proud to be offering a holiday voucher in the Charity Auction. There are many other lots including cruises on the Waverley Steamer, a cookery course, family days out and cream teas. All the money raised in the auction goes to the Save the Swanage Pier Appeal. Have a look at the link to see more about the need to raise money to ensure that the future of the pier is secured.

So come on you landlubbers, bring your cutlasses and dubloons to enjoy the weekend and help to Save Swanage Pier.
