Events During November
Thanksgiving Celebrations – Thursday 28th November 2013
The Plymouth Barbican has strong ties with America. The famous Mayflower ship in 1620 set sail with 102 passengers and 30 crew members for America. These pilgrims settled on what is know as Plymouth, Massachusetts. You can read more about this remarkable journey here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayflower.
There will be service held at the Mayflower Steps to mark Thanksgiving day. These celebrations are to grow year on year as Plymouth sets to host the Plymouth Mayflower 2020 celebrations.
Across the Barbican various thanksgiving options will be on offer, especially food. Why not try some traditional thanksgiving themed food on the day?
Did You Know?…
The original Mayflower Steps from where the Pilgrim Fathers boarded the Mayflower ship are now buried under the Admiral MacBride pub across the road. In fact the exact location of them would be directly underneath the ladies toilets!
