About the Pilgrims
One Small Candle started out as an idea by imaginative local David Saunders. David and his wife Elizabeth returned to Plymouth after 15 years in the USA and thought more could be made of everything around the Mayflower Steps.
We started out with just David (at the Mayflower Steps) wearing authentic Pilgrim clothing made by Plymouth College of Art students.
David’s first appearances went down so well with tourists and local schools that his wife Liz quickly had a costume designed and then we were joined by Olivia 5 and Isabella 10 – our first Pilgrim family was complete. We were joined by Sophia 9 and her brother Charlie 10 last year and both are fun with a passion for history.
We recently welcomed Dan Gomery and we have many more on the way! Dan is the brother of our late Treasurer Simon. He will take on the role of “Militia Man” Myles Standish.
Jane Farnaby a Plymothian and Science Technician is our new Pilgrim. Jane knows a lot of history and is always ready to guide visitors to Plymouth.
David was asked to work with several schools telling the Mayflower story and then found ourselves with Heritage Lottery Funding!
Our fast growing Pilgrim Family can now be seen on the spectacular Plymouth Waterfront…
We are a friendly, polite and welcoming group of Pilgrim re-enactors who will happily show you around Plymouth’s spectacular Waterfront for just a donation.
We really love to show tourists and day trippers the best of the waterfront areas and can take you to places that far too many visitors miss. The WOW places – along with a few short tales thrown in.
Welcoming you to Plymouth is what we do well thus we encourage all contact from coach tour companies, hotels and individuals that want a quick chat or walk about on the Barbican and Sutton Harbour.
Our presentation style is quirky and professionally scripted. We look forward to seeing you here in Plymouth.
If you’d like a fabulous poster of the Mayflower or a local, easy to read, map just ask! Meet Mr Snuggles the Mayflower Cat too. He likes ice cream…
We’re looking for some volunteer Pilgrims now!
