About Mayflower 400
Mayflower 400 UK is an honest, broad and inclusive commemoration of the ship’s sailing from England to America and its often challenging legacy.
It will mark the 400th anniversary year from now through 2021 like never before in history.
For the first time, audiences across the globe will be taken far beyond the story of the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’ and the one dimensional version of the Mayflower voyage. It will examine the history from multiple angles, explore the experiences of those impacted and tell of the ruthless consequences of colonisation.
