Introduction

Plymouth has been named as the lead city for Mayflower 400, and the other UK Mayflower 400 destinations have signed a ‘Modern Day Compact’ recognising Plymouth as the national lead for this significant project. Destination Plymouth is the organisation tasked with bringing Plymouth’s overall Mayflower 400 commemorations together, and Plymouth Culture is helping to support and develop the cultural side of developments.

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 in spring 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. This is shortly to be integrated with the Joint Local Plan, a joint plan between Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon which arts, culture and heritage will be a key part in how we want our cities, towns and villages to look and feel over the next 20 years.
