The Tale of Piggy Pirate and the Stormy Straits

Celebrate your Pirate or Mermaid themed party with The Tale of Piggy Pirate and the Stormy Straits. Enjoy a charming tabletop puppet show for ages 5-10 and join in traditional crafts and fun games and activities.

The Story

Piggy Pirate is enjoying the harbour side inn when he overhears a storyteller talking of a mysterious treasure! 

But somebody else overhears...the cunning Mr Fox. Mr Fox invites himself on the adventure and the two salty sea dogs take to the high seas in search of their fortune.

A swashbuckling adventure with sea shanties, handmade animal puppets and plenty of talking like a pirate.

Craft Activity

Make your own albatross puppet to guide Piggy Pirate through the stormy straits!

Each party guest makes their own paper bird puppet to play with and take home.

Create, colour and customise your bird character.

A simple paper craft with minimal cutting and sticking.

We can substitute this craft for pirate eyepatch making if preferred.

The Storytellers

Choose from either Melody and Marigold (suitable for mermaid themes) or Captain Kittiwake and First Mate Kate (suitable for pirate themes.)

Melody and Marigold are two sisters who live in a secret seaside cove. They tend their garden of shells and coral, free fish from nets, and keep the sea clean and safe for the creatures.

Captain Kittiwake and First Mate Kate are two swashbuckling pirates who sail the seven seas in search of adventure on their beloved ship Stardust. In the evenings, they sing sea shanties and sit on the rocks to hear the tales the mermaids tell of wild and distant shores.
