Charting the Mayflower

Are you interested in local history? Do you have a story of migration to share?

We are looking for volunteers to help us explore the history and contemporary resonances of the Mayflower story, and share it with the wider community in North Southwark.

In 1620 a group of people left England to start a new life across the Atlantic. Many were persecuted for their radical beliefs and forced to plan a perilous sea journey to a new land. 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the departure of the Mayflower from the river’s edge in Rotherhithe. The anniversary will be commemorated nationally and internationally, and London Bubble is carrying out a community inquiry into the story and how it resonates today.

Would you like to help?

Together with historians, artists, volunteers, actors and participants, we are gathering a broad scope of research, stories, objects, facts and testimonies both past and present. Through a series of public workshops and events, our project will culminate in a large scale performance in 2020.

Have a look at our pamphlet LEAVINGS to find out what we learnt in the first phase of the project, and our pamphlet JOURNEYS for the second phase and ARRIVALS for the third and final phase. We are now working on the script. Use our handy pamphlets to bring you up to speed…

Click below to find out how to get involved, or get in touch with Peth byΒ emailΒ or on 020 7237 4434. Events and workshops are FREE and there is no audition process. We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
