  • Small game stalls.
  • Children’s Treasure Hunt and other activities.
  • Weights & Pulleys – educational demo.
  • Basic knot tying.
  • Boat shed open for visitors.
  • The Edgcumbe will be having Shamrock themed food (Shamrock high tea & ships biscuits)
  • Possibly Morris Dancers, not yet confirmed.
