JMS transports illuminated whale at Austerfield and Bawtry Illuminate Festival

JMS of Doncaster Ltd are proud to have been a key part of the Austerfield and Bawtry Illuminate Festival on Sunday 17 November! Celebrating a 400-year connection with the Pilgrims and the sailing of the Mayflower ship to America and Holland, the Illuminate Festival is a regional partnership that highlights the story of those who embarked on that remarkable journey.

A small group of pilgrims, who can be traced back to Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, were Separatists leaving England seeking religious freedom. They wanted to have their own church and not be a part of the Church of England, which was illegal in 1620. 102 individuals (half religious dissenters and half entrepreneurs) embarked to America to seek religious freedom and form a new colony in Jamestown, Virginia.

A JMS vehicle carried a 7-metre-long illuminated whale sculpture, made by the children of local primary schools and facilitated by sculptor Dan Jones from hundreds of recycled plastic bottles. We transported the whale into Bawtry at 4:30 and to the town hall soon after. The parade included a spectacular aerial dance from Periplum, a mass choir from the school children and Quirky Choir, a performance from Doncaster Waites and finished with an 'Under the Sea' themed ball.

We were delighted to be involved in such a significant event in our community, highlighting an important story with roots in our very own home county. Supporting the community is a large part of our company ethos and we're proud to be part of yet another successful Doncaster event.
