Attractions host pirate fun

Hastings Blue Reef Aquarium, the Smugglers’ Adventure and Hastings Castle are joining forces this weekend (July 19-20) to celebrate the town’s Pirate Day spectacular.

As part of the fun, there will be pirate-themed events and trails at the aquarium, a parrot quest in the caves of Smugglers’ Adventure and a lucky dip at the castle. Pirate’s Weekend will feature a variety of piratical quizzes and lots more swashbuckling fun and games. Children that visit the Blue Reef Aquarium and Smugglers Adventure wearing at least three items of pirate clothing, such as a cutlass, eye patch, bandana, will receive a £2 discount off the normal admission price when accompanied by a full paying adult. Blue Reef’s Leanna Lawson said: “Pirate Day is always a massive event for the town and it’s something we all look forward to. This year’s celebrations are set to be spectacular and we’re delighted that all three attractions are able to join the piratical party!”
