Pirates on the Prom
Every pirate is needed!
Would you like to be part of a Guinness World Record this year?
As part of Penzance Town Council’s 400th Anniversary to celebrate the town being granted it’s Charter by King James I 1614, there will be another Pirates On Penzance Prom.
Putting the “Fun” in Fundrasing
Sunday 25th May: From noon until 6pm, there will be musical entertainment from the Oddfolk at the Blue Anchor Spingo tent. They will be bringing a few friends for a wonderful mixture of blues and folk.
If you prefer sport, then you might well be interested in a rugby match between the crew of the Penlee Lifboat against the Penzance Firemen, at the Cornish Pirates RFC grounds at Alexandra Road in aid of the RNLI and Penzance Firefighters. The kick-off is at noon. Then at 6pm, in the Marquee on the RFC grounds, there will be a live music concert.
2014 Guinness World Record Attempt
Monday 26th May: To be held on Penzance Promenade. In St Anthony’s gardens, there will be a Kids “Port O’ Call.” You will find face painters, make up artists and small fairground rides. There will be entertainment throughout the day, all put on by various pirate groups, with all sorts of fun, games and activities.
However, please remember to make your way to the official pirate area on the Prom by 4pm, or you won’t be counted as part of the Record Breaking Attempt.
Follow the large helium filled parrots in the harbour area and you will see the Blue Anchor Spingo tent. Here you will find a wonderful selection of beer and spirits, plus entertainment by various musicians, including Capt’s Beard and Pirate Copy plus many more.
On the Promenade there will be a beer tent and a stage with lots of live entertainment from noon to 4.30pm. Followed by another brilliant pirate party at the RFC grounds.
The record was beaten by the Hasting Pirates in 2012… surely we can’t let them continue to have this title? After all, two gentlemen called their comic opera, “The Pirates of Penzance” and it would be a shame if we couldn’t get the record back!
When all is said and done, there’s potentially a lot of money that could be raised for the Penlee Lifeboat Station.
RNLI Devon and Cornwall
