Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project will enable all residents of our city to understand the journey from arrival to citizenship.

This wonderful City has been a changing place long before The Mayflower sailed, it has welcomed and absorbed new people and families, changing its DNA in the process, becoming an international City, a fusion of faces, faiths, cultures and businesses that overlap in our every day experience.
Culminating in an exhibition in Sea City Museum and a new archive collection in the City Archives, The Journey will create a series of radio programmes and podcasts, and social media, with contributors from many of the communities in the city, to tell the actual story of who these people were and who they have become, record the Testimonies (Oral histories) of those who left their home behind and became the parents and grand-parents of new generations of Saints fans. At the centre of this will be volunteers trained and given the skills to do this work.
