I guess ye be a'wantin  to know what we's a got for 'e in 2022?
Well I can't be telling ye too much of what we be going to do until we knows exactly what's happening with the pestilence! However I will tell 'e some of what we've already got figured out but keep it to yourself.
For a start the 2022 festival might just be a bit bigger than 2019, wi' more ships and more pirates but unfortunately word has already slipped out about this so we's expecting more members of the militia regiments to turn up wi' even more cannon!
Hopefully our friends, The Port Sunlight Sea Dogs should be on board again to get the halyards hauled and capstans turned wi' more shanties! That crazy crew of whalers; The Old Time Sailors will also be performing mob handed as usual, blasting the militia with sheer talent!
The one bit o' news I can tell 'e (strictly in confidence of course) is that Tom Mason and the Blue Bucaneers could well be making an appearance. If ye aint a pirate, yer probably don't know who he is; if ye are a pirate yer don't need telling! This is probably the world's best known, and possibly, best pirate musician. Usually performing in America, he has visited the Conwy Pirate Festival twice before. We are incredibly lucky to have managed to have persuaded him to try and come and perform; he intends be in the country and he has promised to try and make the event if at all possible.
After 2019 the militia will be turning up in greater strength but we reckon to give 'em a hot welcome. We've recruited a few "extra" hands on deck  for 2022 year and they're a right crew of heavily armed likely lads.
Well you'll want to know what else we'll hopefully be a doing in 2022? There'll be all the usual entertainments; a great pirate party, loads of games and entertainments for all ages, barrel racing, sword fighting and lots of new stuff. Can't tell 'e about that just yet; don;t want the militia knowing too much, does we?
If 'e be wanting to know a wee bit more about what's 'appening in 2022 keep a weather eye on this 'ere "website"! We'll tells yer all about it when we can!
