IN 1620, a small group of men, women and children from Hampshire and Surrey were on a ship called the Mayflower with others from across the country when it undertook a historic journey from England to America lasting 66 days.

At Westbury Manor this weekend, for The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400, the eccentric tour guides will use movement, text and music to look at what it was like to make that journey, as well as thinking about the other sea journeys undertaken by the Admirals of the Fleet who once owned the manor, and the men, women and children who have made their own brave and pioneering journeys from or to Hampshire in the 400 years since the Mayflower set sail.

Playful, imaginative and moving, The Imagination Museum is a performance about determination and the extraordinary things that it makes ordinary people do.
