Mayflower Maritime Festival
August 14 - August 16
The Mayflower Maritime Festival will deliver three days of memorable cultural, heritage and maritime activity, promoting the city’s pivotal role in the Mayflower’s journey and its wider maritime heritage.
Highlights will include the unveiling of the renovated Mayflower Memorial, a parade of sails featuring local boats, newly commissioned musicals at the Mayflower Theatre and exhibitions at historic buildings including Tudor House and God’s House Tower.
You’ll be able to see the Wampum belt at the SeaCity Museum and a range of displays and activities at the National Oceanographic Centre with content from the Maritime Archaeology Trust. The Association of Sail Trading Organisations will be in port with around 200 young people learning to sail, whilst the Queen Mary 2 will set sail for America leaving Southampton just as the Pilgrims did 400 years ago.
Part of the Mayflower 400 Anniversary Programme in Southampton.
