MERSEY PIRATE MUSTER
11am – 5pm, Albert Dock, Canning Dock & Canning Half Tide Dock

Step into a storybook world of swashbuckling skulduggery, as the 2nd International Mersey Pirate Muster blasts back
into the Albert Dock on ‘Riverpool Day’. Sea dogs, barnacle-backs and Old Salts cross cutlasses as their magnificent tall ships battle for Liverpool’s lost treasure in the Siege of Canning Dock, with enough cannons and muskets to wake Davy Jones himself.
Beat the pirates to the hidden prize by finding the legendary Pieces of Eight. Follow the clues in the Mysterious MacNamara’s Map*, but keep one step ahead of the Press Gang – Captain Hyde and Captain Seeke are looking for new recruits, willing or not…
Meet the pirates, learn the ropes and listen to yarns as old as the river. Sign the Muster book, join the Mersey Pirate Navy
(minimum term one hundred years!) and watch out for old Monty the Mersey Monster,who is never far from the treasure.
This FREE family fun day, opens at 11am.
With songs, shanties and music for all ages, sword fighting and musket displays, games, ghosts, and gunpowder, this is the Albert Dock that you’ve never seen before.
Pirate Battle commences at 3pm with very loud cannon and musket fire. Rest assured landlubbers, the only thing these pirates will capture is your imagination.
Produced by BeSpoken Storytelling and Liverpool Front House, in association with Lancashire Militia, Earl of Loudon’s Regiment, and Mersey Heritage Trust.
