Mayflower 400 – Cathy Shelbourne

Four hundred years ago, The Mayflower sailed to the New World. The ‘Pilgrim Fathers’ many of whom originated from East Anglia established the settlement that is now regarded as the foundation of modern America.

IMT member and cruise ship speaker Cathy Shelbourne has just written a guide to Harwich, home of the master of The Mayflower. In this talk, she will be looking back at The Mayflower’s origins, as well as forward to the Mayflower 400 celebrations in 2020. For more information on these celebrations click here.

Car parking is available in the nearby Duke St car park (£1.70 per hour), or at IBC pay car parks (only £1 after 6pm) at St Peters Wharf or at Fore St Baths.
