Pirates Live!

Pirates Live!


Watch out as Captain Hawskeye played by Jack Jay, Pirate Johnny played by Johnny Mac and a herd of Swashbuckling Pirates visit the Hippodrome as part of the Brand New Easter Pirates all action water show which starts on Saturday 1st April till Sunday 23rd April.

The brand new show has been written by popular comedy duo Jack Jay and Johnny Mac, will center around the ferocious swashbuckling battle between pirates from all corners of the world to become Pirate of the Year and claim the prize treasure. The show is packed full of sensational circus acts, fire breathers, and insane comedy antics. All set in the incredible immersive staging created especially for the Hippodromes legendary arena including the amazing pirates galleon.

New for 2017, there will be the chance for the audience to enter the competition themselves and take home an amazing “treasure chest” of Hippodrome prizes for themselves. The top prize will include V.I.P tickets to The Hippodrome Summer Spectacular with the best seats in the house, personalized signed posters and souvenir programme, a signed I’m Enjoying Myself T shirt from Johnny Mac and copies of The Hippodromes brand new DVD.

This all new version of the smash hit show is set to break all records, with advance bookings at an all-time high – if you or the kids feel like dressing as a Pirate, do it, it will make a great family photo or selfie at the end of the show when everyone has a chance to meet Jack and Johnny, they will love the motley crew of pirates, fire eaters, acrobats, aerialists and even mermaids!

Don’t miss it Me Hearties!!

More details on the competition can be found on the Hippodromes official Facebook page once the show opens on April 1st.
This show was a complete sell out last year, so be sure to pre book to avoid disappointment.
