Highly recommend this glorious thing, 2 hours, 4 pubs, tall tales, what’s not to like?!” — Kathryn Davis, Head of Tourism, Visit Bristol
excellent research… charismatic delivery… comedy… with a little vicarious thrill of terror” — Bristol 24/7
Edward Teach – aka Blackbeard – was the world’s most famous pirate. And until his violent death in battle 300 years ago he was also the most feared. Teach is said to have been born in Bristol but no records survive. Now new research in Jamaica has proved his family’s West Country origins – and the Blackbeard emerging from the shadows couldn’t be more different from your average, rum soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate.
2018 was the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death. 2019 is the 300th anniversary of ROBINSON CRUSOE – a fiction based on fact with strong links to Bristol and Edward Teach. Walk in Blackbeard’s footsteps in Bristol docks, and by the end of the tour you’ll be able to separate the fact from the fiction, with a bit of help from Ted, the Bristol parrot.
