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, and share it with the wider community in North Southwark.

There are lots of ways you can help us. Whatever your level of experience or how much or little time you have to give, you're welcome to get involved. No previous experience is necessary, your enthusiasm is the most important thing to bring.

We run free public workshops exploring the history of the Mayflower on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm at London Bubble (3-5 Elephant Lane, Rotherhithe, SE16 4JD)

These are open to all ages (although under 12s must be accompanied by an adult). There are no auditions and no previous acting experience is necessary.

Get in touch with Georgia if you are interested in joining the group, or getting involved as a researcher.

This project is part of Bubble's inter-generational work, click HERE to find out more about this strand of our work, or you can read this round up of the first 6 months of the project.


Can you help us share the story with local residents?
In the autumn we will be sharing the findings of our journey so far in local community settings through a series of interactive creative workshops. We will be exploring the story of the Mayflower voyage, as well as stories of migration both then and now.

If you would like to find out more about supporting at these workshops, send a completed registration form to Georgia or call us for a chat on 020 723 4434

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 marked by national and international celebrations and London Bubble is launching a community inquiry into the story and how it resonates today. We want to find out about the life and times of the passengers on board the Mayflower. Why did they leave? How did they travel? And how does this history relate to current stories of migration?
