Some people, apparently, don’t want to be pirates. I know – who knew?

Worse, some people grow up without a gran who 
dabbles in piracy.

There’s a slim chance that even a few of our readers have this missing from their lives. But don’t worry, because you can make up for that by seeing Pirate Gran at Stantonbury Theatre.

Pirate Gran is based on the books by Gerladine 
Durrant and Rose Forshall, and is perfect for youngsters aged three and over.

Gran bakes, gran knits, and you’d never guess that she was a pirate. But she 
also keeps a crocodile 
under her bed and isn’t scared of anything!

Pirate Gran takes place on Wednesday, April 16, from 2.30pm. Tickets are £9.50, £7.50 for concessions and £30 for the whole family, from the box office on 01908 324466.

> Park yourself down to read about the latest 
outside events over the

On Saturday Bark In The Park takes place at Walton Lake from 10am.

Bring your four-legged friend along to meet other dogs for canine capers and to discover a new dog-walking route. The event costs £1 per dog.

> Easy riders will meet at Westcroft Library on 
Sunday from 10am.

This free event will consist of a 25-mile cycle using the National Cycle Network.

> Sunday is all about 
orienteering. Meet at Linford Wood at 10am, bring £5 as your entry fee, and park your car along the roadside at Breckland off the H3 Monks Way.

> And Tuesday, April 15, is all about the Easter Egg Hunt. Join the rangers at Shenley Wood for a 10am start, and get ready for seasonal fun and games as well as a visit from the Easter bunny. Booking is essential via www.theparkstrust.com/
