In 1620, a small group of men, women and children from Hampshire were on a ship called the Mayflower when it undertook a historic journey from England to America, lasting 66 days.
In performances of The Imagination Museum, three eccentric tour guides - Mildred, Henrietta and Harriet - will use movement, text and music to look at what it was like to make that journey, as well as thinking about the huge numbers of men, women and children who have made their own brave and pioneering journeys from or to the county in the 400 years since the Mayflower set sail including many posted into and out of Aldershot.
We will think about what it’s like to embark on a dangerous journey, and also what it’s like to be left behind. What do you take with you, and what do you have to give up? What does it mean to try to make a start in a new place?
This free performance will be repeated throughout the day and will be accompanied by free craft workshops and a chance to chat with the company over tea or coffee.
A story about ordinary people, their life-changing journeys, determination, and the extraordinary things it makes people do.
Performances at 11.30am and 2pm. Free to attend, usual admission fees to the museum will not apply on the 8 March 2020, drop-in event.
Suitable for all ages. The performances will be repeated throughout the day and will last about 40 minutes; feel free to join us afterwards for a free tea/coffee and craft activities for children and families.
