Introduction

Plymouth has been named as the lead city for Mayflower 400, an international project commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s pioneering voyage. A year of events began in November 2019, with a week of headline events taking place in Plymouth in September 2020. For more information visit the Mayflower 400 website.

The Box (previously known as the Plymouth History Centre) is a major scheme in the heart of Plymouth, a symbol for Plymouth’s current regeneration and a museum for the future. The Box is expected to open as the flagship building for the Mayflower 400 commemorations later in 2020.

The opening of The Box in time for the Mayflower 400 celebrations offers a real opportunity for Plymouth to comprehensively change its image and raise its profile internationally. Transforming into a tourist-friendly city with a strong cultural sector will enable Plymouth to further expand in the future.

The Plymouth Plan is Plymouth’s single, integrated strategic plan owned by Plymouth City Council and its partners. It is integrated with the Joint Local Plan, a joint plan between Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon, in which arts, culture and heritage are a key part in how we want our cities, towns and villages to look and feel over the next 20 years.
