Frequently asked questions:

How far in advance do I need to book?

Spaces fill quickly so please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. We require a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice.

How many children can we invite?

We can cater for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20. Final numbers MUST be confirmed 72 hours before the party. Any additional adults and children not attending the party can buy general admission to the Maritime Museum on the day.

Are the parties suitable for girls?

Most certainly! Our costumes include options for little pirate ladies.

What is included in the catering?

The catering options include: party pies, sausage rolls and pasties, nuggets or fish pieces all served with chips; ham, cheese and tomato sandwiches; wedges; or vegetarian/gluten free options by arrangement.

The menu may be subject to change at any time depending on availability and number of children attending. Adults/Families not participating in the party may bring their own food and beverages as long as it is consumed within the designated party area. Alcohol is NOT allowed.

Do you supply a cake?

No, you will need to provide a cake but we will have basic candles, knife, white plates and napkins and a lighter.

What about allergies?

We are unable to cater to food allergies except for gluten free. This must be advised two weeks in advance.

Do we need to organise party bags?

You will only need to supply contents for the children to loot! Each party package includes the option for Pirates to decorate their own Pirate Party Loot Bag.

Do you provide professional theatrical entertainment?

Our party host (available with the Jolly Roger and Ahoy Matey packages) will be dressed in the theme and will help the children with activities and assist the party to run smoothly but will not be singing or providing theatrical entertainment. If you want to hire a real life pirate to attend we can recommend entertainers who provide this service.
