Pirate Day celebrates its 10th year

Hastings Pirate Day

Hastings Pirate Day is back for its 10th year on Sunday 14th July. The town-wide event attracts thousands of pirates every year, and this year is shaping up to be as spectacular as ever.

Hastings already holds the world record for the largest gathering of pirates, but why stop there? This year, you are invited to take part in the Guinness World Record attempt at the largest human image of a boat. Further details will be announced very soon!

In addition to the World Record attempt, the town centre will be a bustling hive of pirate activity, including a pirate themed market, pirate stuntmen, drumming and regular Punch and Judy shows.
