During the month of May on the Plymouth Barbican we’ve seen the Plymouth Pirate Weekend reach our shores with the arrival of the tall ship Phoenix.
Lots of family members young and old enjoyed pirate shows, various demonstrations and tackled the treasure trail which saw numerous groups across the Barbican looking for hidden clues.
Even our dear friend Phillip the Prawn got in on the action taking selfies with the locals!
Did you know you can follow Phillip the Prawn on his own Twitter account @phillipprawn. Follow him and say hi, he does not bite… much.
