Illuminate 2019

This year’s illuminate parade in Gainsborough sees the start of the 2019 Pilgrims Festival and the opening of the 400th anniversary commemorative year of the sailing of the Mayflower.

Watch as the night sky becomes illuminated with lanterns created by the communities of Gainsborough inspired by the words of William Bradford – “as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many”.

Bradford, who was from this region, sailed on the Mayflower to America and went on to become Plymouth Colony’s Governor in America, serving the colony for more than 30 years.

Further details are to be confirmed.
