Seaton Drama Group played to the delighted crowds, both young and old, with a series of ‘Piratical’ sketches, songs and sea-shanties, and youngsters got in the spirit for the costume competition.

Karen Chipperfield, the site’s assistant tourism manager, said: “It was wonderful to see so many children entering into the spirit of the day.”

Visiting Devon Air Ambulance mascot Ambrose was also a big hit, receiving lots of attention from the children.

The air ambulance’s collection boxes received a welcome boost on the day with proceeds of a double-run on the Beer Heights Light Railway going to the charity.
