A swashbuckling mix of piratical fun and entertainment! Brixham Pirate Festival is an annual gathering of the world’s most infamous pirates and lowly scallywags. Read on to find out what it’s all about and how you can get involved.
What is Brixham Pirate Festival 2017?
Located in the historical port of Brixham, the festival has been going from strength to strength over the last eight years. The festival is a free event for all to attend and is a non profit making event funded by sponsors and donations through the public.
See the Incredible Ferdinand Magellan’s Ship
They are extremely excited to announce that this years’ Brixham Pirate Festival will be hosting the historic Neo Victoria, Ferdinand Magellan’s ship! The Nao Victoria will be sailing into Brixham Harbour especially for the 2017 Brixham Pirate Festival, and will be available for viewing throughout the entire festival. This incredible vessel is not to be missed, step back in history by stepping on board one of the most important ships to have sailed the seas!
World Record Attempt
Don’t forget the Guinness book of records attempt of the largest amount of people of any age dressed as pirates. Come on down ‘me hearties’ and get involved!
How do you get to Brixham from Torquay?
Brixham is only a few miles away from Torquay (you can see it from our resort). We think that the best way to get to Brixham and most in keeping with the Pirate Festival, is to catch the passenger ferry from Torquay Harbour. Jump aboard the Western Lady Ferry and on a nice day, you can feel the sea breeze in your hair, whilst missing any traffic you may encounter by using your car or the local busses. At just £3 return for an adult ticket, it’s a great way to get from Torquay to Brixham.
