Captain Barnacle's Pirate Panto! Static

This pirate pantomime show features lots of pirate props, puppets, comedy, and lashings of audience participation. Join legendary Captain Barnacle the Bristol pirate for a rip roaring tale aboard The Matthew!

Watch out for Blackbeard the baddie, a giant sea dog, a crocodile, treasure and a bucket full of silliness, all rounded off with a singsong. All while never leaving the (relative) safety of our mooring!

    “An absolute Bristol must!”

    We have boarded the Matthew several times and learn something new every time. The volunteers are always so delighted to tell stories and share history and are very good at engaging little ones…

    “The Majestic Matthew”

    What a great day we had sailing majestically up the river to Pill and back, waving to the people seeing us from riverside vantage points including those walking above us across the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

    “Day on a Ship”

    This is a great living ship which is free to look round - all parts of the ship are open and if not ask the crew (guides). Trips on the ship can also be booked on their web site, which are fantastic.

    “Ship ahoy.”

    A really interesting visitor attraction. Crew will answer any questions about the ship and how the ancient mariners sailed across the ocean. Kids loved it.

    "Beautiful ship”

    We found this ship on the way to visit S/S Great Britain. It looked very nice. It would have been nice to get on board but it seemed it was closed. I guess it's open to public in...
