Even though The Brixham Pirate Festival is entirely free to all, the event itself is very large and very expensive to put on for you all.

We rely solely on donations and sponsorship, and to help us reach our minimum goal and cover this years’ costs, we have set up a GoFundMe page for people to easily and securely donate to the festival.

As a thank you, each person who donates will be put into a prize draw for a special prize (to be announced), and the largest single donation will also win a special 2016 Brixham Pirate Festival prize pack.

Simply click on the link below and donate whatever you can, each and every donation is greatly appreciated!
