    This exhibition shines a light on the talents of Jersey’s amateur artists and craftspeople, and with our ‘Make Space’ visitors will have an opportunity to create something themselves.

    This exhibition displays both historical and contemporary art and craft, ranging from a Neolithic pot and 18th century samplers, to a huge Cosplay costume made out of recycled materials. Some of the exhibits are from the Jersey Heritage collections and have never been on display, and some have been lent by Islanders.

    There is also a ‘Make Space’, sponsored by the Association of Jersey Charities and Channel Islands Lottery, where visitors to the exhibition can try their hand at various craft activities.

    From a knitted Battle of Jersey to an Occupation costume made out of tins, Handmade Jersey explores humanity’s instinct to create. The exhibition also explores the relationship people have with materials, in particular those that are found in Jersey, such as shells and harestail, as well as things that can be found and reused

    Any groups or schools interested in using the ‘Make Space’ during the exhibition, either as a one-off or regularly, can contact handmade@jerseyheritage.org to book a date and time.  Please be aware that on this occasion JH will share your information with a third party for the purposes of making bookings. Your data will be deleted by the third party within 14 days of the craft session being completed.

    Normal entry fee applies, Jersey Heritage Members go free.

  • COIN HOARD TOUR
    All day
    2019.05.03-2019.09.30

    Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

    The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

    The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

    Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

  • IAN MCKELLEN ON STAGE – SOLD OUT
    7:30 pm-9:30 pm
    2019.05.03-2019.05.04

    Ian McKellen is to celebrate his 8oth birthday next year by raising funds for theatres, with a new solo show which will play on 80 stages across the UK. He will be visiting the Jersey Opera House on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 May 2019.
    Ian McKellen says“I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.
    Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. Sean Mathias, the director and I have worked together for stage and screen, many happy times.
    I was last at the Opera House with “Acting Shakespeare” 30 years ago I’m delighted to be back. All profits will contribute to the renovation of the dressing rooms and green room.”

    Jersey Opera House’s Theatre Director Jasmine Hendry comments“I am delighted that Sir Ian McKellen will be returning to the Jersey Opera House after so many years. It is wonderful that he still has fond memories of his visit to Jersey and has included our small Island in his tour. The fact that our venue will also benefit from Sir Ian’s generosity on his 80thbirthday means that all of our local and visiting performers will be able to enjoy his hospitality through the renovation of the dressing rooms and the green room.

    • COIN HOARD TOUR
      All day
      2019.05.03-2019.09.30

      Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

      The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

      The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

      Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

  • HIGH CONTRAST . OUT-THERE ‘BANK HOL’ SPLASH TAKEOVER
    10:00 pm-2:00 am
    2019.05.05-2019.05.06

    On Sunday 5th May we’ll be joined by one of the true pioneers of the drum and bass sound, one of the genres most respected artists and a man who was a key figure in the emergence of the legendary Hospital Records. The label he called home for much of his career, where you will find his most treasured releases, which will be remembered as some of the greatest of all time in drum and bass.

    Join us at The Splash as we kick-start our journey towards The Dam this summer with one of the true dnb elite, and one of the most must-see DJs on the planet, the legendary High Contrast!

    With a career spanning almost two decades, High Contrast’s place at the top of the drum and bass scene has never been in doubt. A man who is responsible for more huge dnb anthems than almost anyone alive, and who seems to return with better offerings each and every year!

    With tracks like ‘Days Go By’ and ‘If We Ever’ already considered seminal dnb tracks, alongside countless other High Contrast productions. This past year has seen both tracks reworked by High Contrast and Unglued respectively, both lighting up the scene in spectacular fashion!

    His prowess as a musical mind and producer is internationally recognised both in and outside of drum and bass. With his talents regularly sought out for high profile projects – such as his involvement with Danny Boyle’s epic London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, as well remixing duties for some of the biggest names in music including the likes of Adele, Jorja Smith, Calvin Harris and Eric Prydz to name but a few!

    There aren’t many artists who made such an undeniable impact on drum and bass, maintaining their place as one of the leading figures on the scene for so long! This one will be unmissable, High Contrast sets are a thing of beauty and we cannot wait to welcome him back to the Splash alongside the legendary Dynamite MC for this one!

    Support in the main room will be provided by two of Jersey’s finest selectors the brilliant Spim and Inkz, bringing you pure drum and bass goodness from start to finish!

    We’ll also have a Room 2 takeover from our Horizons stage residents, bringing you the big house sounds of summer downstairs in The Bassment at The Splash!

    This will be one of those huge Bank Holiday Splash nights to remember! Sunday 5th May is the date to get in your diaries, as the Splash is taken over once again by true dnb royalty!

    Take a stroll through beautiful St Peter’s Valley as you delve into life in Jersey when it was occupied in World War II. What was life like for everyday people? What did they eat? How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you along past occupation relics on country lanes up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010.  You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces and hear all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.

    No need to book, just turn up!

    Adults £10.00

    This exhibition shines a light on the talents of Jersey’s amateur artists and craftspeople, and with our ‘Make Space’ visitors will have an opportunity to create something themselves.

    This exhibition displays both historical and contemporary art and craft, ranging from a Neolithic pot and 18th century samplers, to a huge Cosplay costume made out of recycled materials. Some of the exhibits are from the Jersey Heritage collections and have never been on display, and some have been lent by Islanders.

    There is also a ‘Make Space’, sponsored by the Association of Jersey Charities and Channel Islands Lottery, where visitors to the exhibition can try their hand at various craft activities.

    From a knitted Battle of Jersey to an Occupation costume made out of tins, Handmade Jersey explores humanity’s instinct to create. The exhibition also explores the relationship people have with materials, in particular those that are found in Jersey, such as shells and harestail, as well as things that can be found and reused

    Any groups or schools interested in using the ‘Make Space’ during the exhibition, either as a one-off or regularly, can contact handmade@jerseyheritage.org to book a date and time.  Please be aware that on this occasion JH will share your information with a third party for the purposes of making bookings. Your data will be deleted by the third party within 14 days of the craft session being completed.

    Normal entry fee applies, Jersey Heritage Members go free.

  • COIN HOARD TOUR
    All day
    2019.05.10-2019.09.30

    Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

    The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

    The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

    Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

    Join Blue Badge Guide Tracey Radford on a journey of discovery around Elizabeth Castle. Peel back the layers of Jersey’s history, climb battlements dating back to the 1590s, explore the turrets and bunkers and visit the Hermitage where St Helier, the Patron Saint of our Town is thought to have lived around 550 A.D.

    Built on a rocky islet in St Aubin’s Bay, Elizabeth Castle has defended Jersey for more than 300 years.  With Tracey discover the original site of the Abbey of St Helier, and visit the Governor’s House, once temporary home to important historical figures such as Sir Walter Raleigh and Charles II of England.

    Take an entertaining trip through the Castle’s long and varied history. Discover just how significant our small Island was in important historical events, through the days of the Empire, Civil War and the World Wars of the 20th Century.  Enjoy stories of battles, and their heroes.   Explore occupation bunkers, Tudor stairways, and a Georgian Parade Ground, there is so much to see and admire. History, legends, and amazing views – this is a tour to be savoured.

    As part of the Jersey Heritage attractions, Elizabeth Castle is accessible at low tide by foot, or, at both low and high tide, the Castle Ferry, which will transport you across the bay to and from the Castle. Elizabeth Castle is the perfect place to spend a day exploring Jersey’s history.

    The cost of Tracey’s tour is included in your castle admission.

    A linear walk every Tuesday, from May 7th until October 29th 2019

    Leaving the Gunsite Café, Beaumont, in St Aubin’s bay at 10:30, arriving at the Jersey War Tunnels about 12:45.

    Take a stroll through beautiful St Peter’s Valley as you delve into life in Jersey when it was occupied in World War II. What was life like for everyday people? What did they eat? How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you along past occupation relics on country lanes up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010.  You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces and hear all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.

    No need to book, just turn up!

      10:45 am-12:00 pm
      2019.05.14

      Join Blue Badge Guide Tracey Radford on a journey of discovery around Elizabeth Castle. Peel back the layers of Jersey’s history, climb battlements dating back to the 1590s, explore the turrets and bunkers and visit the Hermitage where St Helier, the Patron Saint of our Town is thought to have lived around 550 A.D.

      Built on a rocky islet in St Aubin’s Bay, Elizabeth Castle has defended Jersey for more than 300 years.  With Tracey discover the original site of the Abbey of St Helier, and visit the Governor’s House, once temporary home to important historical figures such as Sir Walter Raleigh and Charles II of England.

      Take an entertaining trip through the Castle’s long and varied history. Discover just how significant our small Island was in important historical events, through the days of the Empire, Civil War and the World Wars of the 20th Century.  Enjoy stories of battles, and their heroes.   Explore occupation bunkers, Tudor stairways, and a Georgian Parade Ground, there is so much to see and admire. History, legends, and amazing views – this is a tour to be savoured.

      As part of the Jersey Heritage attractions, Elizabeth Castle is accessible at low tide by foot, or, at both low and high tide, the Castle Ferry, which will transport you across the bay to and from the Castle. Elizabeth Castle is the perfect place to spend a day exploring Jersey’s history.

      The cost of Tracey’s tour is included in your castle admission.

      Tour begins at 10.45 until 12 noon every Tuesday morning.

      A guided walk about life during the German Occupation.

      A linear walk every Tuesday, from May 7th until October 29th 2019

      Leaving the Gunsite Café, Beaumont, in St Aubin’s bay at 10:30, arriving at the Jersey War Tunnels about 12:45.

      Take a stroll through beautiful St Peter’s Valley as you delve into life in Jersey when it was occupied in World War II. What was life like for everyday people? What did they eat? How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you along past occupation relics on country lanes up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010.  You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces and hear all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.

      No need to book, just turn up!

      Adults £10.00

    This exhibition displays both historical and contemporary art and craft, ranging from a Neolithic pot and 18th century samplers, to a huge Cosplay costume made out of recycled materials. Some of the exhibits are from the Jersey Heritage collections and have never been on display, and some have been lent by Islanders.

    From a knitted Battle of Jersey to an Occupation costume made out of tins, Handmade Jersey explores humanity’s instinct to create. The exhibition also explores the relationship people have with materials, in particular those that are found in Jersey, such as shells and harestail, as well as things that can be found and reused

    Inspired by the role of electricity in the human body, Charge, our exhilarating new multi-media show, is about energy. From the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our hearts and the memories we make, six performers use dance and acrobatics to delve deep into the human body, tracing the incredible story of energy in our lives.

    In an exciting fusion of art and science, Motionhouse has worked with partners from the University of Oxford on the role of electricity in the human body to inspire the show. Charge is the third element of Kevin Finnan’s ‘Earth Trilogy’, developing on themes explored in Scattered (2009) and Broken (2013) about our relationship with water and the Earth.

  • COIN HOARD TOUR
    All day
    2019.05.17-2019.09.30

    Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

    The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

    The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

    Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

    Welcome to the home of Laurens Hamptonne, Jurat of the Royal Court of Jersey.  The year is 1660 and King Charles II has been restored throne, following the tumultuous events of the English Civil War. The King twice took refuge in Jersey, firstly as the Prince of Wales in 1646. Hamptonne’s unstinting dedication to His Majesty, then in the position of Vicomte (Viscount), has been rewarded with favours that conferred upon him a higher position in society, and secured the future of his estate by Royal Patent.

    Laurens can often be found reading in his chamber, or sternly instructing his steward in housekeeping matters. Stories of his friendship with the King, who is rumoured to have stayed at Hamptonne, have spread far and wide. You’ll see that Laurens has become rather grand.

    • COIN HOARD TOUR
      All day
      2019.05.17-2019.09.30

      Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

      The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

      The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

      Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

      LAURENS HAMPTONNE

      Fridays – 17 May, 31 May, 14 June, 28 June, 26 July, 9 August, 23 August, 6 September, 20 September

      Welcome to the home of Laurens Hamptonne, Jurat of the Royal Court of Jersey.  The year is 1660 and King Charles II has been restored throne, following the tumultuous events of the English Civil War. The King twice took refuge in Jersey, firstly as the Prince of Wales in 1646. Hamptonne’s unstinting dedication to His Majesty, then in the position of Vicomte (Viscount), has been rewarded with favours that conferred upon him a higher position in society, and secured the future of his estate by Royal Patent.

      Laurens can often be found reading in his chamber, or sternly instructing his steward in housekeeping matters. Stories of his friendship with the King, who is rumoured to have stayed at Hamptonne, have spread far and wide. You’ll see that Laurens has become rather grand.

  • There’s Always Next Season
    11:00 am-1:00 pm
    2019.05.18

    A snowboarding film with a difference; an insider’s portrayal of a particular sport scene, but above all, the story of friendship. With the tension of Rocky, this film documents old friends reuniting to make a snowboarding film twenty years after their heyday.

    Chronicling a ‘putting the band back together’ narrative, this is Blues Brothers with snowboards – crashing through our screens with an awesome multiplicity of tricks and aerial feats.

    This group of friends refuse to give up on a defining moment in 1997 Tromso, when one of them lands a spectacular jump. These characters prove that they have more bounce-back-ability than Rocky, as they hit the road to make a film they should have made years ago.

    This event is free but booking is essential.

  • Uncovering the secrets of the caves of Plemont Beach – A Geowalk with Jersey Uncovered
    12:30 pm-2:30 pm
    2019.05.18

    This is a beach walk involving rock pools and exploration of some of the caves in the bay to discover the history of the granite rocks and many intrusions and fault lines which cut through the bay. It is a walk through the tectonic history of the island and also a route followed by many Victorian and Edwardian tourists who came to the bay to be impressed by the savagery and wildness of the nature to be found there. The beach is always changing and sometimes there are deep pools to get into the caves so wellies, sandals (not flip flops), neoprene shoes or trainers which can get wet are essential. This walk is two hours.

    Cost : £10 per person, children free.

    To book contact Nicky at nicky@jerseyuncovered.com.

    The exact meeting point and times will be given on booking.

    These two short films from the Jersey Film Archive were shot in the 1910s and capture amazing images of Jersey over 100 years ago, including arrivals at St Helier Harbour, Jersey Cows, vraicing at Mont Orgueil, Corbiere Lighthouse and many other unmistakably local scenes.

    The Suffragette

    Director: Urban Gad / Germany / 1913 / 60 mins / Cert: PG

    Asta Nielson, one of the megastars of the Silent era, plays a militant suffragette in this contemporary portrait of the movement. As common for the time, this film comes to the story of Suffrage from a comedic point of view, hoping to dispel some of the anxieties around the change of power dynamics. Danish actor Nielson brings a modern naturalness to her role as character modeled on a member of the Pankhurst family.

    She gets involved in a plot to murder a government official, but romance gets in the way. While the film itself has an ambiguous relationship to the cause, its contemporary depiction of suffrage protests and imprisonment combined with its lead performance has led to its singular place in film history.

    With thanks to: Mark Egan, States Greffe, Linda Romeril, Jersey Heritage, Barbara Corbett, Corbett Le Quesne.

  • The House by the Sea
    8:30 pm-10:30 pm
    2019.05.18

    A deeply layered story about the lives of different generations of a family. Robert Guediguian, the great humanist French filmmaker, again works with the family of actors that have graced many of his films. This beautifully observed drama hones in middle-aged siblings tending their father at their holiday home in an abandoned fishing village in the Calanques, Marseilles. Each has lived a very different life, and through a dramatic intervention, they are coaxed out of their reflective states and towards renewed bonds of family and unity.

    “Anyone who enjoys classic French art house drama will find plenty to relish here” – The Indepedent

    Claude Libre

    • There’s Always Next Season
      11:00 am-1:00 pm
      2019.05.18

      A snowboarding film with a difference; an insider’s portrayal of a particular sport scene, but above all, the story of friendship. With the tension of Rocky, this film documents old friends reuniting to make a snowboarding film twenty years after their heyday.

      Chronicling a ‘putting the band back together’ narrative, this is Blues Brothers with snowboards – crashing through our screens with an awesome multiplicity of tricks and aerial feats.

      This group of friends refuse to give up on a defining moment in 1997 Tromso, when one of them lands a spectacular jump. These characters prove that they have more bounce-back-ability than Rocky, as they hit the road to make a film they should have made years ago.

      2019.05.18

      Did you know that three quarters of all the different types of crops grown around the world benefit from animal pollination? or that we have pollinators to thank for one in every three mouthfuls of food that we eat?

      Bring along a picnic to enjoy with your family and learn about the importance of insect pollinators, what you can do to help them, and how your picnic would be a very different offering without these wonderful creatures.

      Our education team will be in attendance running activities for children and answering your pollinator-related questions.

      This event is aimed at families with children, but all are welcome.

      This event is free but booking is essential.

    • Uncovering the secrets of the caves of Plemont Beach – A Geowalk with Jersey Uncovered
      12:30 pm-2:30 pm
      2019.05.18

      This is a beach walk involving rock pools and exploration of some of the caves in the bay to discover the history of the granite rocks and many intrusions and fault lines which cut through the bay. It is a walk through the tectonic history of the island and also a route followed by many Victorian and Edwardian tourists who came to the bay to be impressed by the savagery and wildness of the nature to be found there. The beach is always changing and sometimes there are deep pools to get into the caves so wellies, sandals (not flip flops), neoprene shoes or trainers which can get wet are essential. This walk is two hours.

      Cost : £10 per person, children free.

      To book contact Nicky at nicky@jerseyuncovered.com.

      The exact meeting point and times will be given on booking.

How did they know what was going on in the outside world?

      Leaving the Gunsite Café, Beaumont, in St Aubin’s bay at 10:30, arriving at the Jersey War Tunnels about 12:45.

      Take a stroll through beautiful St Peter’s Valley as you delve into life in Jersey when it was occupied in World War II. What was life like for everyday people? What did they eat? How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you along past occupation relics on country lanes up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010.  You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces and hear all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.

      No need to book, just turn up!

      Adults £10.00

    This exhibition shines a light on the talents of Jersey’s amateur artists and craftspeople, and with our ‘Make Space’ visitors will have an opportunity to create something themselves.

    This exhibition shines a light on the talents of Jersey’s amateur artists and craftspeople, and with our ‘Make Space’ visitors will have an opportunity to create something themselves.

    This exhibition displays both historical and contemporary art and craft, ranging from a Neolithic pot and 18th century samplers, to a huge Cosplay costume made out of recycled materials. Some of the exhibits are from the Jersey Heritage collections and have never been on display, and some have been lent by Islanders.

    There is also a ‘Make Space’, sponsored by the Association of Jersey Charities and Channel Islands Lottery, where visitors to the exhibition can try their hand at various craft activities.

    From a knitted Battle of Jersey to an Occupation costume made out of tins, Handmade Jersey explores humanity’s instinct to create. The exhibition also explores the relationship people have with materials, in particular those that are found in Jersey, such as shells and harestail, as well as things that can be found and reused

    Any groups or schools interested in using the ‘Make Space’ during the exhibition, either as a one-off or regularly, can contact handmade@jerseyheritage.org to book a date and time.  Please be aware that on this occasion JH will share your information with a third party for the purposes of making bookings. Your data will be deleted by the third party within 14 days of the craft session being completed.

  • COIN HOARD TOUR
    All day
    2019.05.24-2019.09.30

    Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

    The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

    The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

    Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

    THE HUMAN LEAGUE

    The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2018 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare!

    They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence.

    But they’re about more than esoteric infiltration there has been mainstream penetration, too, commensurate with a band who gave us the greatest ever Christmas Number 1 single with 1981/2’s‘Don’t You Want Me’, who have had four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles and sold 20 million records worldwide.

    The Human League will perform in Jersey for one night only at Fort Regent on Friday 24th of May. Tickets available from Rockit.je and Eventbrite.

    • COIN HOARD TOUR
      All day
      2019.05.24-2019.09.30

      Ancient coins from Jersey’s world-famous Celtic coin hoard will be making their way around the Island as part of a special pop-up exhibition. The FREE touring exhibition, which is kindly supported by Benest & Syvret will come to your Parish/Public Hall over the next year.

      The exhibition will spend a month in each parish hall over the next year, giving as many Islanders as possible the opportunity to view some of the Iron Age coins, and to find out more about the story behind the hoard. Entry to the exhibition is free.

      The massive hoard, which contained nearly 70,000 coins, was found in a field in 2012 by metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles. It had lain buried for 2,000 years. Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world’s media and a fascinated public.

      Ancient gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are on display at La Hougue Bie Museum (during normal opening hours, please see our Places to Visit section), and it is some of these treasures that are part of the pop-up exhibition.  A useful child-friendly guide has been designed to help children understand where the hoard has come from, it’s history and who burried it.  The pack is free to download here or available, thanks to Benest & Syvret at each Parish Hall.

      THE HUMAN LEAGUE

      The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2018 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare!

      They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence.

      But they’re about more than esoteric infiltration there has been mainstream penetration, too, commensurate with a band who gave us the greatest ever Christmas Number 1 single with 1981/2’s‘Don’t You Want Me’, who have had four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles and sold 20 million records worldwide.

      The Human League will perform in Jersey for one night only at Fort Regent on Friday 24th of May. Tickets available from Rockit.je and Eventbrite.
