Pirates Vs Mermaids

As part of this year’s River Festival in Stratford-upon-Avon, we’ll be welcoming a host of pirates and mermaids to Bell Court!

Marking Bell Court’s first Pirates Vs Mermaids event, visitors will be invited to transform into ferocious buccaneers and mystical sirens to take part in a fancy dress competition that will be judged by the Pirate Queen and her consort, with a treasure chest of prizes up for grabs including a £25 gift card from All Bar One, a full platter from Nando’s, wine tasting for two people at Veeno, a family ticket for Magic Alley and two tickets for Everyman cinema.

To ensure you really look the part, there will be free face painting available between 10am and 4pm for anyone wanting to become a pirate or mermaid for the day.

There will also be live music, a pirate story-telling corner, photo opportunities with the visiting mermaids and a flash mob from Rozie T Dance. Plus, Everyman will be showing the swash-buckling classic, Pirates of the Caribbean at 5pm on Sunday 1st July.

Visitors to the event will also be able to indulge in rum flavoured butter beer at Magic Alley which has been created exclusively for the weekend, whilst enjoying mermaid and pirate themed food and drink, along with special offers, at our many bars and restaurants.

The family-friendly activities will be taking place throughout the day on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July.

Pirates Vs Mermaids has been organised by Bell Court owners, UK & European Investments, Magic Alley and the Stratforward BID.
