Come to Conwy and see the pirates storm the castle to try and take a prisoner! Can the militia defend the castle and keep it safe? With cannons and gun fire, who will prevail!

Conwy Pirate Weekend sees the castle under fire from the pirates docked on the quay.

Who will win the battle? Will the red coats defend all inside the castle, through the cloud of black smoke from the gun fire and cannon shots? Or will the pirates take over and escape with a prisoner, and then sail off into the sunset?
