World Record Attempt
In 1614 Penzance Town Council was granted its official Charter by King James 1st and 400 years later the town is gearing up to celebrate this monuments occasion.
After the success of the first record breaking Pirate Day back in 2011, Penzance will be looking to regain its crown for the most Pirates assembled in one place. The event is due to take place over Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend with the official Pirate count taking place on Penzance prom, May 26th at 4pm. We have listed some of the entertainment below:
