Brixham Pirate Festival Cancelled for 2018

The Brixham Pirate Festival has been cancelled for 2018.

The popular annual event, despite the organisers best efforts, has been unable to raise the money needed for the 2018 FESTIVAL.

Chairman Peter Berresford told DevonLive, “It is with a heavy heart and great regret that we announce that the 2018 Festival cannot go ahead because of a severe lack of funding. When we won Silver, then Bronze for the English Riviera and South Devon Best Tourism Event of the Year in 2016 and 2017 we anticipated more local organisations would want to be associated with such a fantastic, award-winning, community event. We hoped more financial aid would be offered locally by those wanting to show support for Brixham and the festival."

However, there's always plenty going on in Brixham, with other great events through the year, keep an eye on our calendar.
