Shiver me timbers...a pirate trail will be held in Royston on Saturday, and it promises to be swashbuckling fun for all the family.
Pirate Day will be based at the lair in 53 High Street and will feature entertainment such as walk-the-plank, pirate craft activities, badge making and pirate glitter tattoos.
There will be a fancy dress competition and most importantly, a pirate treasure trail.
Participants will be issued with a treasure map and clues which will lead them around the town centre to discover hidden treasure in the shops.
All activities will be free for all ages and will be spread throughout the day.
