Calling UK Pirates, 2009 Pilgrimage to Execution Dock

1 post in this topic

This is a message for anyone in the UK who is interested in Pirates and Pirate Re-enactment, who is not a subscriber to the UK Pirate Brotherhood forum.

The 2009 Pilgrimage to Execution Dock is taking place on the 15th of February this year.

The Pilgrimage to Execution Dock is an annual social gathering for pirate re-enactors in and around London.

We gather in costume and visit some site of Pirate, or Maritime interest, before making our way to The Prospect Of Whitby Pub at Wapping, the site of Execution Dock, where, amongst others, Captain Kidd was hanged.

There we drink a toast to those who have danced the Hempen Jig.

This year we have arranged to put on a fund raising display for the Cutty Sark.

The Cutty Sark, built in 1869 is the last surviving 19th Century Tea Clipper.

In May 2007, whilst undergoing a major renovation, The Cutty Sark caught fire. fortunately, most of the timbers had been removed for preservation, but the damage to her superstructure was extensive.

She is due to reopen to the public in 2010

This is an opportunity to meet up with other pirate enthusiasts, to have a fun day out, and to help raise funds for a fine old ship.
