Don't mention Pirates!
This fun event encourages people around the world to learn pirate speak for 24 hours – a rather unusual challenge for all of the family!
Luckily, the crew at Newquay's newest attraction, Pirate's Quest, are available to teach visitors how to sound like a real buccaneer in preparation for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
From 12th to 20th September, Pirate's Quest will become a 'Pirate Academy' with the goal of teaching landlubbers their 'ports' from their 'starboards' and their 'ayes' from their 'arrrs' as they enjoy the hour long, walk-through, adventure.
Visitors will be rescued from the sinking Royal Anne by a live Pirate, who will then escort them through the authentic Cornish coves and streets, to the old town of Towan Blystra. This location is where Captain Calico Jack has made port. But before stepping foot onto Captain Jack's ship, The Neptune, visitors will first have to prove that they have learned ‘pirate speak’ before becoming a true crewmate and a proper pirate!
Along the journey, participants can learn what buccaneers eat, what rules they have to obey, and most importantly, how to talk like a pirate. Follow a special 'Pirate Academy' treasure trail and use your newfound knowledge of pirate lingo to uncover the secret word. There will be a reward for your efforts with some of Calico Jack's treasure, and an official Crewmate Card, to prove that you are an honorary member of the crew and a most professional pirate!
To celebrate this 'Talk Like a Pirate Day 2015', you can learn to talk like a pirate and also meet real buccaneers to become a member of the crew.
Visitors are also encouraged to dress-up as pirates for this fun event.
