Do you know any fearsome pirates aged between 6 and 12? Because the V&A Museum of Childhood is looking to recruit some for its Pirates Sleepover night!
Your kids (plus their parents/carers) will be able to spend a swashbuckling night inside the museum, explore their new pirate exhibition, listen to a few pirate tales, and take part in some yaarsome crafts and games and a torch-lit tour.
You'll probably want to read their FAQs before making a booking. Things to note include the age range (they must be between 6-12), the maximum of one adult per two children, and they need to bring a sleeping bag and toothbrush. And they have to leave their radios at home (pirates didn't have radios!).
