THE IMAGINATION MUSEUM: MAYFLOWER 400
Saturday 31st August at 11.30am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm
In The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400, three eccentric tour guides will lead you on a danced history tour, using movement, text and music to explore what it was really like for many of the passengers who undertook a historic journey from England to America aboard the Mayflower in 1620. This free performance will be accompanied by free workshops for children and their grown-ups. Playful, imaginative and moving, The Imagination Museum is a performance about determination and the extraordinary things that it makes ordinary people do.
