Cornwall libraries host half-term pirate parties for children

Budding buccaneers are invited to come along to pirate parties at many of Cornwall’s libraries this half-term.

The sessions, which are taking place throughout the week and are free of charge, are being hosted by The Get Creative Team who are working on Treasure Island, the Hall for Cornwall’s Christmas show.

There will be plenty to keep your little ones entertained including a selection of mini pirate discos, island story time, crafting with the captain and a terrific treasure hunt.

Pirate parties are taking place at libraries this half-term

The events are suitable for children aged 4 to 10 years old. All children should be accompanied by an adult. Fancy dress is not compulsory but is very welcome (there may even be a prize for the best costume!).

Spaces will be limited depending on capacity at each location. Please contact your local library to check if you need to book. Contact details for each library are available via the Cornwall Council website.

Councillor Carol Mould, portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods at Cornwall Council, said: “We are really pleased to be working with Hall for Cornwall to bring this exciting initiative to families across Cornwall.

“I would encourage people to pop down to their local library and have a great time.”
