Starz & Black Sails Season 3. The Real Life Of Blackbeard. Ten Things You Should Know about the most famous pirate ever. Don’t be afraid!

1.- Edward Teach or Edward Thatch was probably born in Bristol, England, around 1680.

2.- He could have been a sailor on privateer ships during Queen Anne’s War before settling on the Bahamian island of New Providence, known as the Pirates’ Republic.

3.- There, he joined the crew of Captain Benjamin Hornigold, who also appears in Black Sails TV shows, and the two engaged in numerous acts of piracy. In 1717 Hornigold retired from piracy and Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, became the new commander.

4.- He became a renowned pirate and his legend spread. For example, he was reported to have tied lit fuses under his hat to frighten his enemies.

5.- He and Stede Bonnet formed an alliance of pirates and among other acts of piracy, they blockaded the port of Charleston, South Carolina and successfully ransomed its inhabitants.

6.- Unfortunately, Blackbeard attracted the attention of Alexander Spotswood, the Governor of Virginia. Thus, a party of soldiers and sailors captured the pirate on 22 November 1718.

7.- During a ferocious battle, Teach and several of his crew were killed by a small force of sailors led by Lieutenant Robert Maynard.

8.- After his death, he was romanticized and became the inspiration for books, novels, movies… and TV shows. The last one: Black Sails Season 3.

9.- In Black Sails Season 3, actor Ray Stevenson plays the role as Blackbeard.

10.- Ray Stevenson has portrayed two Marvel Comics characters: Frank Castle/The Punisher in Punisher: War Zone and The Super Hero Squad Show; and Volstagg in Thor and its sequel Thor: The Dark World. In the movie Kill the Irishman, Ray Stevenson portrayed Cleveland mobster Danny Greene. In 2012 he appeared in the seventh season of Dexter as Isaak Sirko.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time.
