other local blogs have been following the progress of Johnny Depp's current filming of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film at nearby Greenwich and the Royal Naval College in particular. But I have to cave now and feature something about this intriguing man when I learnt yesterday that Captain Jack Sparrow and fellow pirates made an apparently 'surprise' visit to children at a local school, Meridian Primary School, delighting them in full costume. Whether or not it was a surprise or PR arrangement, I admit it raised a frisson of excitement in me and will be something the children (and staff) will remember for a long time.
You can see some (amateur?) footage below and read about it here.
