Mayflower 400 is an international commemoration, taking place in 2020, of the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, the historical journey that took 102 people and around 30 crew on a voyage to a new life in America in 1620.

Events and exhibitions will be taking place in towns, villages and cities in Britain, the Netherlands and the USA throughout the year to mark the shared history of these countries. A year-round programme of commemorative events will mark the anniversary with content ranging from art, music and theatre to exhibitions, heritage trails and festivals launching in November 2019.
