Awesome Al, the cabin boy of our Pirate Ship, welcomes you aboard this suitably swashbuckling seafaring adventure. From the stirring sounds of Leroy Anderson’s Pirate March to the spectacular finale where everyone learns The Sailor's Hornpipe, this is an unforgettable voyage through uncharted waters in search of a treasure trove of musical gems.
Beware a ghostly encounter with The Flying Dutchman, and escape Over the Waves to the Caribbean to join pirates singing about the Jamaican Rumba. Encounter Cap’n Jack Sparrow in music from the Pirates of the Caribbean films and test your nautical knowledge in our quiz Nautical Notes. Come dressed as a Pirate!
All Hands on Deck
Find out about pirates and life on the ocean wave before this concert with objects and artifacts from Merseyside Maritime Museum. Discover what they are used for, learn about the hardships of life as a sailor and where many well-known phrases and sayings originate.
