There will be a Jack Sparrow impersonator, fairground rides and more when a shopping centre puts on a free pirate themed fun day later this month.

Between 10am-2pm on Wednesday, August 20, Wisbech’s Horsefair Shopping Centre will host a vast range of pirate themed activities including face painting, balloon modelling, a fairground ride and a Punch and Judy show.

There will also be prizes for every child that manages to find and count all the pirate gold coins hidden in shop windows.

A guest appearance is promised from Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator Darren Potter, who will judge the children’s fancy dress competition at noon.

Captain Jack will meet shoppers and pose for photos throughout the day.

Some of the Horsefair shops will also join in with their own pirate fun and children’s competitions.

Horsefair centre manager Kevin Smith said: “We’ve got a lot planned and the great thing is that practically all of the activities are free.

“I can’t wait to see lots of pirates dressed up and making their way through the centre on the day.”
