Get Shipwrecked At Hamswell Festival 2014

Hamswell Festival is celebrating its 10th birthday this year with a shipwreck and pirate theme. Emanating from Hamswell Farm, the festival is a small but fun event that is widely regarded as one of the best summer experiences that you can discover in the Somerset area. To mark the occasion, we've hand-picked some of our favourite pirate costume ideas that we'd love to see at the festival!

Jack Sparrow!

Jack Sparrow!

Care to become one of the most famous pirates ever? It would likely garner you lots of attention.

The official Captain Jack Sparrow costume comes complete with a pirate shirt with waistcoat, set of trousers with shoe covers and a pirate bandana with attached hair and beads.



An absolute bargain for the price point, we adore this pirate costume.

Our simple yet appealing Stripy Pirate costume includes dress with long sleeves and skirt, a set of arm ties, a simple pirate belt and also a pirate's bandana.



Captain Pugwash is a classic character that is synonymous with pirates and pirating.

The Pugwash costume comes complete with pirate shirt with attached jacket, beige coloured trousers with attached shoe covers and also a Captain Pugwash headpiece.



Looking for something a little different? Not all pirates need to wear skirts!

Our Penelope Pirate costume includes top, cropped jacket with bell shape sleeves, a set of black leggings, pirate belt and also a cool looking hat.
