Illuminate Worksop 2019

A dazzling street parade and vibrant performances commemorating 400 years since the Mayflower's voyage, the Pilgrims' story and its connection to Worksop.

Featuring a parade with willow lanterns made by artists, community groups and young people from in and around Worksop, the ‘400’photograph, and digital projections onto the dramatic Worksop Priory church, which is known as the origin of the Tickhill Psalter as well as being the birthplace of Mary Bernard who, with husband Roger Williams, founded Rhode Island State.
