Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 January 2022 | Lakeside Arts | 12pm – 4pm | FREE

This weekend is your last chance to see Beyond the Mayflower at Lakeside Arts.

It looks at previous commemorations of the Mayflower story and the ways in which it has been interpreted over time. It also explores wider issues of immigration, emigration and colonialism using the archives held at the University of Nottingham.

Along the way expect to see a selection of artefacts, remnants and artworks connecting the long 21st century with what went before. All exhibitions invite you to travel in time, but this one insists on it.

    I can't believe it! The struggle paid off and I found someone to do my assignment for me on an urgent basis. I was struggling to get there and it made my day memorable. The event was important too https://www.dissertationpros.co.uk/assignment-writing-service.php, so I went for it and put myself out there to find the solution.
