Youngsters are invited to don their best pirate costumes (optional) and meet at Scarborough Castle for story time and free drinks.

They will then walk down the hill to Hairy Bob’s Cave to see the man himself.

Each child who takes part will receive a free pirate-themed goody bag.

Participants are then invited to bring a picnic to enjoy together at the end of the event.
