Ahoy, me hearties! Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, so we’ve dug up five ways you can be a pirate in Hull.

Grab tickets to see the Christmas pantomime

The fascinating tale of Peter Pan will be told in the recently refurbished Hull New Theatre this December. With a fantastic cast, including Brendan Sheerin, Darren Day and Charlie Hardwick, the show is bound to be full of theatrics, comedy and plenty of audience participation.

Don’t miss out on flying high with Peter, Wendy and the Lost Boys, as well as diving underwater in a magical 3D sequence. On top of all this, there will be a City of Culture twist to the story – the Darling family will be Hull natives, rather than living in London.

This pirate-y panto will be on at Hull New Theatre from Thursday 7 – Sunday 31 December. You can purchase tickets on the Hull Theatres website.

Create your own pirate regalia at Scrapstore

With a plethora of affordable arts and crafts resources at Hull Scrapstore, you can get the whole family involved. Make costumes for all of your crew from their extensive range of materials, paints, fabrics and more. You could even put together your own treasure chest and fill it with your favourite sweets and treats.

The Hull Scrapstore can be found on Dairycoates Avenue. To find out more about the charity, please visit their website.

Try your hand at Pirate Adventure Golf

This nautical take on classic crazy golf is full of fun for all ages. The challenging nine-hole course is suitable for groups of four and includes entering the Pirate’s Den, a Treasured Cove and ending with a Barrel Run. What’s more is that you can complete the course in the day or at night, so it’s great for birthdays and special occasions.

Find out more about Pirate Adventure Golf and visit them on National Avenue.

Pop down to support the Hull Pirates

The talented ice hockey team are currently gearing up for the fast-approaching new sports season. Watch them swish and glide around Hull Ice Arena as they compete in this energetic and entertaining Canadian sport.

The Pirates were formed after the liquidation of much-loved Hull Stingrays back in 2015. Their next home fixture is on Sunday 1 October against Solway.

Tickets can be bought online or on match day. More information on the Hull Pirates can be found here.

Explore the underwater world at The Deep

Discover what’s below the salty seas at Hull’s amazing ship-shaped aquarium, which is home to over 3,000 sea creatures.

Overlooking the Humber Estuary, The Deep is also in the perfect location to get into the yo-ho-ho spirit. The Yorkshire coast was actually teaming with smugglers back in the day and Hull was a primary spot for selling precious goods, exotic fruits and contraband.

Additional information and admission prices for The Deep can be found online.
