One lucky nipper will have the chance to win a £100 Brunel Gift Card plus other pirate plunder.  To enter, children need to search around the shopping centre to find the six hidden parrots and discover the letter they each hold.  By putting all the letters together and solving the anagram children will be able to crack the pirate code word and enter the prize draw.  (Collect entry forms from Captain Jack on the first floor of The Brunel Arcade, between Marks & Spencer and Boots.)

Facebook fans will be able to enter The Brunel’s desert island competition.  Just tag the person that you would most want to share your desert island with and say what luxury you would like with you.  The winner will be selected at random and will win a chest full of 50 £1 new coins. Visit www.facebook.co.uk/thebrunelswindon to enter!

 

Other pirate activity will be taking place in the town centre on Friday and Saturday.

Swindon Town Centre will be awash with all things Pirate this half-term when the town hosts Pirate Fest, a three day Pirate Festival.

The town centre’s retail partners – The Brunel, inSwindon BID Company, Regent Circus and The Parade have got together to celebrate the launch of the next Pirates of the Caribbean film ‘ Dead Men Tell No Tales’ (in cinemas at the end of May).

Pirate Fest will see the return of Johnny Depp lookalike Captain Jack Sparrow.  Captain Jack is so good you have to wonder what Mr Depp himself would make of him.  The Eagle-eyed will spot Captain Jack, who will pose for selfies, in the Brunel Plaza, between 11am and 3pm each day.  Other Peter Pan and Pirate characters will roam the town centre throughout the festival.

Wharf Green will be transformed into Pirate Ship Zone, where you will be entertained by the greatest villain of all time, the famous Captain Hook!  Also planned is local live music and dance, children’s entertainment, fancy dress competition and prizes. Captain Hook activities will include apple bobbing, Pirate limbo, funfair rides, Pirate crafts, free face painting and lots more!
