The Mayflower and Mayflower 400

Apply for funding to support your Mayflower 400 project

Southwark Council, United St Saviour’s Charity and British Land have worked together to establish a Southwark Mayflower 400 Grants Fund, making £140,000 available to local projects celebrating the themes of migration, tolerance, enterprise and community, for the international Mayflower commemoration event.

From November 2019 to November 2020 a global programme of events is being organised that will include a programme of activities taking place across the UK, Netherlands and America. More details can be found on the Mayflower 400 UK website.

The council is inviting community groups, tenant and resident associations, faith based organisations, schools and arts, cultural and heritage organisations in SE16, to consider how they could use the Mayflower’s heritage to create meaningful and exciting projects that enhance and highlight its stories for a local and international audience. Projects from groups in SE1 and those based outside the immediate area may also be considered.

In Round 1 we allocated £80,000 to a range of local cultural, heritage and education projects that will bring the community together to commemorate this anniversary.

Round 2 is open for applications from 1 May until 30 June 2019
