History, legends, and amazing views – this is a tour to be savoured.

    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.

    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.

  • Coin Hoard Tour
    All day
    2019.09.06-2019.09.30

    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.

    • Coin Hoard Tour
      All day
      2019.09.06-2019.09.30

      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.

    On the two previous occasions when we have run this festival (2015, 2017) in has proven to be very popular and successful. It is an ideal forum for the smaller charities in particular to meet the public, to show, tell, share, communicate their message and gain support. The Parish has also offered the use of the Parish Hall, however at this stage we are not planning to use the Hall unless any participants in particular want an indoor set up.

    As in previous years, there is a small participation fee, £20, as a contribution towards the 3rd party public liability insurance cover and also towards publicity materials.

    Interested charities should email me to reserve a place brian@clarkebiz.com and they can see other info and past events on Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/Kindnessactionday/  and also https://www.facebook.com/events/2432256090394141/

    Also, in order to enhance the event experience for all visitors the only condition is that each participant is required to do something that will be of interest to visitors, previously ideas have included free origami lesson, photo opportunity on a Harley Davidson, Treasure Hunt Map, cakes (of course), massage and many other great ideas that have created an enjoyable and fun day for the many visitors to the Festival.

  • JONNY WOO’S ALL STAR BREXIT CABARET
    8:00 pm-10:00 pm
    2019.09.07

    ‘Jonny Woo could stop a war with love’ The Scotsman

    Drag Superstar Jonny Woo and Olivier Award winning composer of Jerry Springer the Opera, Richard Thomas bring you this sequin spangled musical ripped straight from the headlines. This is an uproarious yet seriously glamorous satire about the referendum of 2016 and the ensuing furore of ‘Brexit’ with a star-studded cast of top Fringe talent. ‘In’ or ‘Out’? There’s a hell of a lot to sing about.

    Jonny Woo’s All Star Brexit Cabaret was a smash at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018. Jonny Woo, the ‘king and queen’ of London’s alternative scene and musical theatre’s ‘enfant terrible’, Richard Thomas, have come together to write a score that is jam packed full of unforgettable songs including ‘Referendum-dumb’, ‘The Great Cunting Debate’, ‘Swivel Eyed Loon’ and ‘The Ballot Box Ballad’. Expect glittering star turns from Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Nigel Farage of course and a cameo from Theresa May. Neither Woo nor Thomas intends to bore you with the same old rhetoric or statistics, rather thrill you with hi-jinx, big laughs and unexpected emotional clout.

    The show is performed by Jonny Woo, Richard Thomas, Sooz Kempner and Jersey’s own, Adam Perchard

    • JONNY WOO’S ALL STAR BREXIT CABARET
      8:00 pm-10:00 pm
      2019.09.07

      ‘Jonny Woo could stop a war with love’ The Scotsman

      Drag Superstar Jonny Woo and Olivier Award winning composer of Jerry Springer the Opera, Richard Thomas bring you this sequin spangled musical ripped straight from the headlines. This is an uproarious yet seriously glamorous satire about the referendum of 2016 and the ensuing furore of ‘Brexit’ with a star-studded cast of top Fringe talent. ‘In’ or ‘Out’? There’s a hell of a lot to sing about.

      Jonny Woo’s All Star Brexit Cabaret was a smash at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018. Jonny Woo, the ‘king and queen’ of London’s alternative scene and musical theatre’s ‘enfant terrible’, Richard Thomas, have come together to write a score that is jam packed full of unforgettable songs including ‘Referendum-dumb’, ‘The Great Cunting Debate’, ‘Swivel Eyed Loon’ and ‘The Ballot Box Ballad’. Expect glittering star turns from Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Nigel Farage of course and a cameo from Theresa May. Neither Woo nor Thomas intends to bore you with the same old rhetoric or statistics, rather thrill you with hi-jinx, big laughs and unexpected emotional clout.

      The show is performed by Jonny Woo, Richard Thomas, Sooz Kempner and Jersey’s own, Adam Perchard

    LIVE SCREENING

    On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait is over… The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

    ‘Dear Readers: Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.’

    ’With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect. The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September.

    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.

      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.

    LIVE SCREENING

     

    ★★★★★
    ‘Witty, filthy and supreme.’ Guardian

    See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

    Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

    Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

    Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

    Presented by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre

    • NT LIVE: FLEABAG – LIVE SCREENING
      7:30 pm-9:30 pm
      2019.09.12

      LIVE SCREENING

       

      ★★★★★
      ‘Witty, filthy and supreme.’ Guardian

      See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

      Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

      Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

      Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

      Presented by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre

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

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.

      Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Into the Woods’ brings to musical life Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and other well known fairy tale characters. In true Sondheim style interwoven is the story of the Baker and his Wife whose longing for a child is thwarted by the Witch next door taking revenge for the Bakers father stealing her beans many years before.  By the end of Act 1 all the story lines are seemingly resolved and everyone lives happily ever after.  But do they?

      A marvellous rap number from the Witch, lovely lyrical numbers, songs to make you laugh and others to make you cry.  It is Sondheim at his best.

    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.

    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.

  • Coin Hoard Tour
    All day
    2019.09.20-2019.09.30

    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.

    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.

    • Coin Hoard Tour
      All day
      2019.09.20-2019.09.30

      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.

      3D printing and design
      Laser cutting, CNC and other maker tools
      Robots, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and Hardware
      Programming, IoT
      Laser cutting
      Re-purposing and recycling
      …and any other interesting ideas people bring.

      Children who are interested in technology are welcome, accompanied and supervised by an adult

  • Handmade Jersey – A Work In Progress
    10:00 am-5:00 pm
    2019.09.25-2019.12.30

    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.

    Normal entry fee applies, Jersey Heritage Members go free.
