All aboard for pirate fun in Canary Wharf
Early risers in Canary Wharf will get the chance to see a 65 metre long tall ship, set to house a pirate party, sail into view tomorrow morning.
The Tenacious, owned by a Southampton charity called the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST), arrives at 7am to be temporarily berthed in West India Dock, near the South Quay DLR station.
On Monday, 30 disadvantaged children will climb on board, thanks to The Variety Club charity, for a pirate party.
They will be greeted by a Jack Sparrow impersonator based on the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and TV presenter Jamie Rickers.
The lucky kids will enjoy face painting, pirate fancy dress, games and a tour of the ship.
