Pirates’ week team makes early start on raising cash

| 14/04/2014

(CNS): With public money thin on the ground and private sponsorship getting scarcer by the year, organisers of the Pirates’ Week festival are making an early start with fundraising for the annual celebration of skulduggery. Not without its critics the week still proves popular and while it may not be a money making venture the annual heritage event brings a boost to tourism at the end of the low season attracting overseas visitors especially for the festival. This year it will open on 6 November and finish on 16 November but Pirates Week fans can help make a contribution long before then by taking part in a special music and food event on 26 April.

Music for your Palate, organisers said will be one of a series of events leading up to the Pirates Week Festival and the money raised will be used to fund the Fireworks and Family Fun Day —  two of the festival’s main family events.
