Blood, Blackbeard and Buccaneers Team Building

About

Extraordinary new revelations about Blackbeard, the world’s most famous pirate, are promised in Show of Strength’s new walking tour of Bristol docks – just in time for the 300th anniversary of his death.  

BLOOD BOOZE AND BUCCANEERS opened as part of Bristol’s Harbour Festival on Friday 20 July with tours on Wednesdays and Saturdays until the autumn.

Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, was born in Bristol in the 1680s. Probably. Only there are no records to prove it. But new information from Jamaica supports his Bristol origins, and even fills in some of the missing details of his life. And those details are remarkable.

The real Blackbeard couldn’t have been more different from your average, rum soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate. Much of what we do know about him – including his legendary brutality – was probably self invented. Blackbeard created his own fake news to terrorise his enemies into an early surrender.

The tour lasts 2.5 hours, visiting dockside hostelries and landmarks along the way. The first tour starts at 5pm on Friday 20 July, then Wednesdays at 7pm and Saturdays at 3pm, from Wed 25 July until Wed 12 September.
