Swash buckling Pirates board the Sanctuary!
Ahoy me hearties! This May half term the National Seal Sanctuary is being boarded by Pirates as they launch their brand new children's play area 'Pirate Bay'.

From the 31st May - 6th June 2010 unleash your inner buccaneer as the Sanctuary hosts a wide range of Pirate activities. This includes lessons in How To Talk Like A Pirate, free face painting, Pirate games, children's free treasure trail and much more.

Children are encouraged to come wearing Pirate fancy dress, and a free gift will be given to each swashbuckling matey to do so.

The new children's play area is shaped like a galleon and challenges all children to test their sea worthiness! In Pirate Bay children will be able to climb the rigging, man the wheel, enjoy the slides, climb the frames and swing through the obstacle courses.

"We're very excited to launch our new play area this half term" said the Sanctuary's Laura Ward. "We did have a small children's play area before, but this large investment will make such a big impact on the overall visit, so now parents can take their children for the whole day and have a relaxing time whilst the children play!" added Laura.

Any child in Pirate fancy dress on the day will receive a free gift.

The Pirate play area comes after the Sanctuary welcomed their new colony of Humboldt penguins in April 2010 into their own new fantastic enclosure. The enclosure has underwater viewing and even an area upstairs to view them from above!

The Sanctuary is open from 10am daily, and Pirate week will take place from 31st May - 6th June 2010.
