Brixham's Mile of
Pirates 2012, It's a record!
Brixham's 4th Pirate
Festival took place over the bank holiday weekend and was well
attended throughout the 2 days. With a Pirate Day full of family
fun on the Saturday 5th May, Sunday 6th May saw a record attempt
at a ‘Mile of Pirates' around the harbourside and up through
Brixham Buccaneer Nigel James, an
organiser of the Pirate Festival 2012 was very pleased with
the Brixham Mile of Pirates attempt saying, 'It went really,
really well and everyone was good natured'. The Mile of Pirates
started from the Dorothy Perkins, Fore Street, going down to
Kings Street, through the alley and up along the Brixham Harbour
with the line of pirates nearly reaching to the Heritage Pontoon.
Nigel wanted to thank
all the visitors and locals that came along to attempt the record.
He also thanked all the local businesses that donated prizes
for the raffle and wanted to say, ‘a big thank you to all the
sponsors and fundraisers, marshals, volunteers, actors and entertainers,
the re-enactment groups, South Devon Players, the Brixham Berserkers,
Brixham Town and Torbay Councils, Beverley Park and Hoburn Holidays.
Finally Nigel said that he hoped everyone had a good time and
hoped that they would come back again!'
