About Jack Sparrow

WHO IS THIS CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW?

Welcome to the website of Captain Jack Sparrow, the quickest, cleverest, sneakiest, most charming rogue ever to sail the seas. To some, he may be the worst pirate you’ve ever heard of...but you have heard of him. With his trademark dreadlocks, beads and sash, a love for rum, and a penchant for slightly odd turn of phrase, everyone wants to know about him. And here you get the chance to meet him in person!

DISCLAIMER: Captain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character created by the Walt Disney Studios for the immensely popular ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ film franchise, and immortalised by actor Johnny Depp. This website is a tribute to the character, personified here by UK actor and artist Terry Cooper.

WHAT DOES A PIRATE DO?

As Captain Jack Sparrow is a notorious pirate, he has an air of shambolic chaos about him. It’s never clear what he’s thinking or what he may be planning next. He walks talks and acts strangely, but under the strangeness lies a razor sharp mind, calculating the best way to obtain whatever it is he desires, be it treasure, adventure, rum... or just to get out of the current situation and onto the next adventure.

When YOU get to meet him, you can be sure that this characterisation is spot- on. The costume, voice and mannerisms are so uncanny, you’d think he’d just stepped off the cinema screen. But Captain Jack is all too aware that little ones are watching, so you can rest assured that his behaviour is always and strictly fun, funny and family-friendly. Please contact us to find out more about the type of events that Jack Sparrow will happily attend, and those which he would rather avoid.

EVERY PIRATE HAS HIS PRICE

There are many Captain Jacks around the UK and also around the world. Though we are not part of a single organisation, we all share a dedication to the character, and respect for the creators of this iconic figure. We strive to dress as accurately as we can and ensure that our impersonations of Jack (and indeed Depp playing Jack) are performed to the best of our ability.

The costume may look tattered and worn, made up of all kinds of odd items, but in reality, many of these are custom-made to look identical to the movie items. As such, a Jack Sparrow costume of this kind often exceeds £1000 in cost alone. When we travel to an event or location, we invest our time and money and energy into making people happy. Giving the public an opportunity a chance to meet and have fun with one of cinema’s most iconic characters, is what we do and why we do it.

But like everything, this time and attention has a value, and does come with a price. Captain Jack, as found on this site, has three basic rates for the main social engagements that he is often asked to attend. These are:

1. CORPORATE EVENTS / PROMOTIONS
2. PRIVATE BOOKINGS /SMALL EVENTS
3. CHARITY EVENTS / HOSPITAL VISITS


Each rate is designed to be reasonable, sensible and tailored to suit the event, the organiser and the audience. We believe that this particular Jack Sparrow, catering mainly for South Wales and the southwest of the UK, is competitively priced and well worth every penny.
