Adventures in Moominland

moo

It begins

It is a great and unique way to learn more about Tove Jansson the author/ artist of the great Moomins and more about Moomins and the other characters that appear in her books. I loved going on the journey through Moominland clambering through a forest, sitting in a tent, huddling in a cave etc. It was so interesting to learn in this unique way that the majority of her stories and charters all was related to do with her life from romance to depression.

Advertisement – The Hidden Spirit

The Hidden Spirit

Set sail from 22 November on an immersive adventure on the world’s first pirate ship cocktail bar.

Board The Hidden Spirit at St Mary Overie Dock in central London and enjoy some grog with Jack Cassidy crew whilst keeping your ears and eyes open as their is treasure and adventure to seek out.

For three days each week, Sir Francis Drake’s The Golden Hinde will transform into The Hidden Spirit – a treasure-hunting vessel led by legendary adventurer Captain Jack Cassidy.

This completely unique and mischievous night-out will allow guests to experience life as a pirate on the Seven Seas. Inspired by legendary characters synonymous with the Golden Age of piracy, Pirates of the Hidden Spirit will see guests recruited to Captain Jack Cassidy’s crew and given an opportunity to plunder the world’s finest treasure, including delicious cocktails.

The year is 1795, Captain Jack Cassidy has been recruited by the US Government to sail The Hidden Spirit and recover a bounty of treasure, valued at $2million, that has disappeared in London. With the riches recovered, The Hidden Spirit is docked on the Thames before making the arduous journey back to America, but the ship is unable to set sail as the crew have mysteriously fallen ill.

Jack is looking for London landlubbers to form a new crew, only this time he is looking for…PIRATES!

Once on-board, guests transform into Jack’s crew and are given authentic pirate coats and three cornered hats. They are then warned by the ships Governor that the vast treasure, including all of the liquor and spirits contained within the chest, must return safely to America, with all acts of treachery and mutiny punishable by walking the plank. Directed to the gun deck, the first cocktail of the evening is served, the legendary grog that goes by the name of the Golden Shimmer. This luxurious cocktail is formed from pieces of gold taken from the treasure and must be sipped surreptitiously to avoid falling foul of the Governor.

Crewmates are then served two further exotic cocktails within the bowels of The Hidden Spirit’s barrel deck. Five glorious grogs that celebrate the spirit of seafaring adventure are available, including Royal Docks (a Royal G&T with elderflower & Earl Grey tea), Beneath the Bridge (a salted caramel Old Fashioned) and St Mary’s Margarita (a Persian Lime & Nori Margarita).

Visits to Pirates of the Hidden Spirit will last for one hour and forty minutes and cost £34.99 per person (includes 3 cocktails).
