Hastings Pirate Day, free annual event in East Sussex 
Photos from 2016

always an amazing event to photograph!

Saturday the 16th of July 2016, another great Pirate Day in Hastings, always an amazing event to photograph! For anybody not local the town of Hastings in East Sussex has an annual Pirate Day event where thousands of people dress up as pirates, we currently hold the world record for the most pirates in one place!!! In 2012 we had a total of 14,231 (that's not estimated, they counted us as we went onto the beach!)pirates gathered on the beach!!! Places have tried to beat our world record, but so far (I'm writing this July 2016) we still hold the record! It's always a really fun day, some do have a little too much rum sadly, but 99% of the people are lovely pirates!!! Local drumming groups always get involved, so my photos include many of Section 5 Drummers, Stix Drummers, Drumskullz and some of Pentacle Drummers too. Hastings has a lot of history to do with smugglers and pirates, so it's the perfect place for Pirate Day!
