Next year marks the 400th anniversary of Pocahontas death and burial in Gravesend. As a result of this we launched our programme of events on board the MV Balmoral on the 20th June. We were joined on the ship by groups of dignitaries and special guests including Sir Bob Worcester who is our patron for the events. This event is only the start of a programme of events that include a selection of talks and a range of commemorative events and celebrations. There will also be a selection of Pocahontas walks run by local historians Christoph Bull and Sandra Soder. These will be bookable from the Gravesend Visitor Information Centre (Towncentric) at a price of £4. Dates of more events to come. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
