A series of playful, imaginative and moving dance performances and workshops, from multi award-winning choreographer Katie Green, come to Gainsborough in May. 

The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 is about determination and the extraordinary things that it makes ordinary people do, and is part of a three-year project leading up to the 2020 anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. 

Saturday 11 May

Gainsborough United Reformed Church, Church Street, Gainsborough DN21 2JR

Performances at 11am and 2pm

In association with West Lindsey’s Churches Festival

Free to attend, but donations welcome, no tickets needed – just turn up on the day

Saturday 25 May

Gainsborough Old Hall, Parnell Street, DN21 2NB

Performances at 11.30am and 2pm

Standard entry charge applies 11am-5pm, no additional event charge

Free performances (40 minutes) will be repeated throughout the day. PLUS: Join us for a free tea/coffee and a chat and dance/craft activities for children after all our performances.

In The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400, 3 eccentric tour guides will lead you on a journey through history, using movement, text and music to explore what it was really like for many of the passengers from this area who travelled from England to America aboard the Mayflower in 1620.

I am thrilled to be returning to Lincolnshire to respond to such a significant event in the area’s history. This is the very beginning of our Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 project which starts this year in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire and will travel via Hampshire to Plymouth in October 2020, in line with the journey that many of the Mayflower passengers took 400 years ago.
