Whilst nibbling and tippling, make time for adventures! Little ones can take part in a pirate scavenger hunt with prizes. Get their face painted, let them craft their own Jolly Roger flag, and create a pirate bounty to take home. Grown-ups can hunt for photo ops throughout the market, take flash mob dance lessons or simply wander whilst listening to lively pirate tunes.
