Illuminate Gainsborough – Mayflower 400
16 November, 2019, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This event includes a street parade and performances commemorating 400 years since the Mayflower’s voyage. Activities explore the pilgrims’ story and its connection to Gainsborough, Lincolnshire in the Pilgrim Roots region. Featuring digital projections onto Gainsborough’s historic Old Hall and a parade through the town with willow lanterns made by artists, community groups and young people from Gainsborough, ‘Illuminate’ is both a part of the University of Lincoln’s festival hub for Being Human and a highlight event in the events calendar for ‘Mayflower 400’, the UK’s official commemorative programme and partnership for the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s voyage. Supported by funding from Arts Council England.
This event is part of the ‘Moving Stories: Discovering Lives Lived Differently’ festival hub organised by the University of Lincoln.
