A series of playful, imaginative and moving dance performances and workshops, from multi award-winning choreographer Katie Green, come to Gainsborough in May. The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 is about determination and the extraordinary things that it makes ordinary people do, and is part of a three-year project leading up to the 2020 anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Many of the passengers on board the Mayflower were from this area.
