Commenting on the programme, Charles Hackett, Mayflower 400 CEO, said:

“It is hugely disappointing that we are going to have to make changes to the programme that people have worked so hard on and that so many have engaged with and supported. However, the health and safety of the public and performers is paramount at this time. We will work quickly to provide further clarity on the aspects of Mayflower 400 in the coming days.”

The Mayflower team will be talking to community groups involved in the Vital Sparks programme about rescheduling events were applicable.

For ticketed events please speak to the event organiser. More details on the revised schedule will be published as soon as they become available.
