Free workshops in SE16, suitable for all ages.
Almost 400 years ago the Mayflower left Rotherhithe’s shores with people on board seeking a new life across the Atlantic.
Their quest, and its legacy, has become symbolic of America and shaped global dynamics.
But who were the passengers on board? Why did they get on the ship, and why do we remember the name of the Mayflower above all of the other ships that sailed to America in the seventeenth century?
Join us for a free workshop, where you can:
• Put yourself in the shoes of a passenger that was on board
• Share your own story of migration and talk about your family history
• Watch a short performance which asks the bigger questions about the place of this story in our shared world history
• Help us mark this important piece of Rotherhithe’s history, and place it alongside stories of leaving today.
Under 12s must be accompanied by an adult.
