Bristol is where Long John Silver ran a pub called The Spyglass; where Squire Trelawney found and fitted out the good ship Hispaniola, and where young Jim Hawkins stepped off the coach from Devon to set sail on the biggest adventure of his life – the search for Captain Flint’s buried treasure.
A walk full of pirates and buccaneers; hidden spy holes; dark secrets, dirty deeds and lashings of doubloons. Hear the story where it all began: Bristol docks. Laced with terrible pirate jokes and Ted, the fact checking parrot, to make sure your pirate gets the story straight. The perfect half term holiday treat.
Show Of Strength has a passion for local stories and loves sharing the city’s secrets and hidden history. Awards include Best of Bristol 2018: Theatre from Bristol24/7 and Best Live Performance at the Creative Bath Awards.
