Half term is on the horizon and a crew of pirates from Griffin Historical is due to land on Jersey’s shores. "Pirates at the Maritime Museum" is back for 2024.
Sponsored by Ogier, "Pirates at the Maritime Museum" will provide five days of swashbuckling action-packed, family entertainment and marauding mayhem with Jersey Heritage from 12-16 February.
Kate Kirk, Ogier’s Marketing Director, said: “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Jersey Heritage this year, bringing history to life for the younger generation. To kick off our dedicated programme of family fun events, adventures and activities for 2024, we’re excited to welcome the Pirates back to Jersey for the February half term. Interactive learning through events like this offers a valuable opportunity to learn more about our Island’s history and enjoy a fun, family day out.”
Any would-be pirates visiting the Maritime Museum while the Pirates are in Jersey will be able to hear stories of the high seas, meet the ship’s scribe, learn about life onboard a pirate ship and try their hand at coin striking. There will also be fun pirate fact trails to follow, arts and craft activities to try and the opportunity to grab a cutlass and take part in a battle.
Jersey Heritage’s Community Events Curator, Nicky Lucas, said: “The team from Griffin Historical are firm favourites among the families who have met them before at our events. Despite their impressive resumés, they always say the Maritime Museum is their favourite venue and we can’t wait for the Pirates to arrive on our shores for half term to cause some marauding mayhem!”
Griffin Historical hold events for Historical Royal Palaces and English Heritage and have visited Jersey on several occasions. Their crew of Pirates have published books and worked in the film and TV industry. One even featured in a "Pirates of the Caribbean" film.
The sessions will run from 10am - 4pm each day during February half term. Entry is free for Jersey Heritage members and children under the age of six.
