Pirates, Heritage & Vintage Fashion in Milford

Milford's Pirate Day is an annual event in the village, and this year incorporated the celebration of Milford's heritage. Held on Saturday 9th November, it was a nod to the old "Pirate Shippe' dance hall that was a popular venue but demolished in 1957. Not only were there street stalls outside stores with retailers dressed in pirate fashion, but live music also featured throughout the day and children enjoyed elaborate face-painting, balloon sculpting and a pirate treasure hunt, plus a bouncy castle. Inside Milford Shopping Centre was a heritage photo exhibition with images of Milford from the past, swing dancing demonstrations, and a strongly represented inaugural "Glamour on the Green' vintage fashion competition. The day culminated in a colourful fashion show curated by Stephanie King of Painted Bird vintage clothing store.
