Pirates ahoy! The Big Halloween at Capital E

Pirates ahoy! The Big Halloween at Capital E

This year for Halloween, Capital E sets sail for Pirates Cove. Come and join more than 4,000 other aspiring pirates and sea dogs and celebrate Halloween as Capital E and Civic Square are transformed into a wondrous Pirates Cove.

From 4-8pm on Saturday 31 October, The Big Halloween: Pirates Cove will be a fully immersive and hugely enjoyable family experience. Get your pirate, pixie, witch and wizard outfits on and come prepared!

Greeting everyone at Capital E will be the Pirate Captain and his deranged parrot whose ragtag crew of shipmates will either lead you on a merry treasure hunt or make you walk the plank! There will also be a death-defying pirate adventure floorshow and sea shanties from the resident pirate band.

On entering Capital E everyone will have to brave the Voodoo Priestess Hut, with weird and wonderful displays and a collection of potion ingredients. Frights guaranteed…

The spectacularly spooky Pirates Cove will also spill out from Capital E and take over Civic Square, which will be brimming with exciting performers and attractions. For the courageous there will be fairground rides with lots of thrills and chills and a nautical-style obstacle course will be set up for pirates in training – crawl under the cargo net and test your balance on the beam.

And where would Halloween be without some mysterious Trick 
or Treat Doors – who will be behind them? Will it be the fairy princess, a caveman, or is it time to be met by the dreaded scary witch?

Capital E is famous for its fun and freaky Halloween celebrations. The Big Halloween is a much-anticipated family event, providing a safe way for young people and their families to get together and thoroughly enjoy this spooky night.

Remember: Dress scary and come prepared!
