Get dressed up in your best buccaneer costume, test your sea legs as you walk the plank and have a go at plonking a pirate as we bring you an entire weekend of pirate antics.

This Spring Bank Holiday Weekend Captain Henry Morgan is returning to Tredegar House to select a new batch of recruits to whisk away on one of his epic adventures. 

The annual celebration of one of the world’s most infamous buccaneers has grown from a day to a whole weekend for the first time as we turn our historic house and gardens into a playground for pirates. 

Raiders and scallywags can prepare to pillage the treasures of Tredegar House and take part in a whole host of pirate-themed activities that have earned the festivities a reputation as one of the best family days out in South Wales. 

Dress up and get stuck into some pirate fun
