Pieces of Eight

Swashbuckling adventure awaits with Pieces of Eight! 

Two pirate crews have arrived at their secret meeting place to parlay and decide to whom the treasure belongs... Not all is as it seems and swords are drawn, pistols are waved, and chaos ensures. Come and support your captain and help your crew claim the treasure.

Don’t forget be on the lookout for the Kings men! 

The show runs for approximately 40 minutes. Followed by a chance to come, and have a closer look ‘show & tell’ and meet some of the pirates! Yes, you can take pictures. 

The show is most suitable for those 6+. The show contains occasional load noise. 

We know many parents/guardians might have children who are a mixed of ages, including some younger than 6.  Whilst we will not stop younger children from attending, some content might not be suitable/might go over their heads. Any child over the age of 4 will require their own ticket. If a child is under 3 and requires a seat then they will require a ticket.

Do be aware that if your child is causing disruption, you may be asked to leave. 

Swashbuckling Cornwall uses a mix of professional, amateur and student actors in their performances. Find out more about Swashbuckling Cornwall here: 

Runtime: 40 minutes show, followed by 25 minute 'closer look' where the children can meet the pirates, hold the weapons under supervision and learn more!
