Join us in collaboration with Hubbub to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day in litter picking style. Visit Castle Wharf in Nottingham on Sunday 19 September to highlight the ‘Treasure your River’ Campaign – which is all about preventing river litter across the UK. Here’s a taster of what you could get involved with on the day:

  • Children can captain our pirate (litter-eating) ghost ships, set sail whilst staying dry. Our remote controlled litter-busting boats will clear anything lurking on the water, no sailing experience required.
  • Get up the creek with a paddle. Pirates aged 8 and over can have a go at our free canoe and paddleboard taster sessions, keeping an eye out for litter as you go. 
  • Explore the catch of the day at our special fishmongers stall serving up a banquet of freshly caught litter.
  • Join a pirate on a search for treasure along the towpath 
  • Get fit to sail the seven seas with Reggaerobics and much more fun on the day.
