Wells Pirate festival
Aha, me hearties! It’s Wells Pirate Festival in September, a three day pirate party filled with buccaneers, scallywags and salty sea dogs with pirate activities and events for the whole family.
Wells Pirate Festival is the annual fundraiser for Wells Maltings Trust which is fundraising to transform the Maltings building in Wells into an exciting new arts, heritage and community facility. Grab your cutlass and set sail towards Wells - join in the pirate fun and help raise some much needed doubloons.
