Description

The Black Pearl is an amazing interactive art piece, totally unique and much loved by eveyone who has visted her both young and old alike. She is a full sized pirate ship made completely from driftwood built on a large clean stretch of sand on the beach in New Brighton. We have schools from all over the Northwest coming to visit and be entertained by The Black Pearl Pirates, community groups visit as well as charitable events held on board. She is by far the most photographed ship on the Mersey. We have had weddings on board held by a local minister and the Chernobyl children visit every year for a special beach party. Its a place where childrens imaginations can run free, sailing the high seas aboard a real pirate ship. She is illuminated throughout the winter months and is open and accessible 24/7 365days of the year. Use of the boat is totally free whatever the event may be and even though we are pirates we take no money from the general public as this has been built for and given to the community. The current ship is the 6th one as she is built on the beach and during high tides and storms she takes a severe battering from the waves (we have lost 5 to the sea ) it makes an spectacle as wave after wave hits her. We have also created another much loved attraction in the local park close to the ship....A Fairy Village, with fairy houses, dragons unicorns and many more creatures
