Mutinies, Mermaids & Muskets
06 Apr 2019 - 07 Apr 2019
Come and meet Simpkin, a Tudor Privateer and Explorer, who served with Captain Drake during his circumnavigation of the world.
Simpkin has many tales to tell; of the hardship of life on board ship, of visiting far off lands, of involvement with the slave trade, and of battling against the Spanish as, it should be remembered, one man’s ‘Privateer’ is another man’s ‘Pirate’!
Visit our Toilers of the Deep exhibition, take part in our Maritime trail and make your own clay ships lantern to take home.
Normal admission applies small additional charge of £2 for clay craft activity.
