Opening Times

Mayflower Week (23 Nov 2020 - 28 Nov 2020)

The Mayflower 400

Mayflower 400 Commemoration November 2020

To enable us to deliver a safe Mayflower Week programme for all involved, we have made the decision to move some of our events from September into November 2020.

Along side the programme changes, unfortunately, we find ourselves unable to deliver our Grand Mayflower Pageant on 30 August and the following week’s River Events. With social distancing and gathering restrictions we are no longer able to host our Maritime programme as we would have liked. 
 
In place of the planned events we are looking into a suitable alternative Maritime activity for Dartmouth Mayflower that will carry the legacy of the project beyond 2020. Details will be released when this new element to our programme is finalised.

 

August 1620 saw the Pilgrim Fathers, in their two ships, The Mayflower and The Speedwell depart from Bayards Cove in Dartmouth for the New World America. Unfortunately, the Speedwell started sinking 300 miles off Lands End and they all returned to Plymouth. the Mayflower continued the journey alone to America and created history.

Dartmouth is one of the eleven towns participating in the National Mayflower Partnership and, throughout the 12 months from Thanksgiving November 2019, will be commemorating the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower with a series of exciting events. These events will involve the whole town and we hope will leave a lasting legacy well beyond 2020.
