  • Towers Tides and Turnstones – Uncovering Grouville with Roger Noel
    2:00 pm-4:00 pm
    2022.07.02

    Join Roger Noel on a fascinating exploration of the South-East corner of Jersey, from coastline to country lanes and back again.

    This circular walk begins at La Rocque Harbour where you can hear about the fascinating history of this harbour and former fishing port.  See where the invading French troops landed on a cold winter’s night of 5th January 1781, and learn of the 18th and 20th century fortifications that now protect this area of coastline, which is also a designated area of special interest, and protected Ramsar site.

    From La Rocque you wander inland, venturing into the countryside, to enjoy fantastic views, catch glimpses of visiting and local birdlife, and hear a little of our agriculture and oyster farming industries.

    The walk returns full circle, through the country lanes, following the route of the old Jersey Eastern Railway, and heads back to the beach, for a final stroll along the shoreline returning to La Rocque Harbour.

    This gentle stroll, which encounters no hills and just a few steps, will take approximately three hours, with a chance of a well earned refreshment at the end.

    Pre-book by telephoning Roger on 07797 824721 or email Roger at [email protected]

    Cost £15 per person

    Meet at the Telephone Box at La Rocque Harbour.

    • Towers Tides and Turnstones – Uncovering Grouville with Roger Noel
      2:00 pm-4:00 pm
      2022.07.02

      Join Roger Noel on a fascinating exploration of the South-East corner of Jersey, from coastline to country lanes and back again.

      This circular walk begins at La Rocque Harbour where you can hear about the fascinating history of this harbour and former fishing port.  See where the invading French troops landed on a cold winter’s night of 5th January 1781, and learn of the 18th and 20th century fortifications that now protect this area of coastline, which is also a designated area of special interest, and protected Ramsar site.

      From La Rocque you wander inland, venturing into the countryside, to enjoy fantastic views, catch glimpses of visiting and local birdlife, and hear a little of our agriculture and oyster farming industries.

      The walk returns full circle, through the country lanes, following the route of the old Jersey Eastern Railway, and heads back to the beach, for a final stroll along the shoreline returning to La Rocque Harbour.

      This gentle stroll, which encounters no hills and just a few steps, will take approximately three hours, with a chance of a well earned refreshment at the end.

      Pre-book by telephoning Roger on 07797 824721 or email Roger at [email protected]

      Cost £15 per person

      Meet at the Telephone Box at La Rocque Harbour.

    The Comedy of Errors is a seemingly straightforward tale, with the action taking place in the course of a single day. After both being separated in a shipwreck from their twins, Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse have scoured the world to find their long lost brothers. They arrive in Ephesus blissfully unaware that their twins live there. The new arrivals trigger a series of hilarious incidents of mistaken identity which leads to accusations of infidelity, insanity and theft.

    Will they finally find their twin brothers? Will they be reunited with their parents? There’s only one way to find out!

    Bring your family, bring your friends, bring a picnic and laugh until your sides split.

    Picnicking from 6pm with pre-show entertainment from 7.15pm.

    • The Comedy of Errors
      7:30 pm-9:30 pm
      2022.07.04-2022.07.08

      Shakespeare’s shortest and funniest play, performed in the beautiful grounds of Samares Manor. This colourful, lively and sparkling production has something for everyone; physical comedy, music, dance, magic and, of course, the Bard’s beautiful words.

      The Comedy of Errors is a seemingly straightforward tale, with the action taking place in the course of a single day. After both being separated in a shipwreck from their twins, Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse have scoured the world to find their long lost brothers. They arrive in Ephesus blissfully unaware that their twins live there. The new arrivals trigger a series of hilarious incidents of mistaken identity which leads to accusations of infidelity, insanity and theft.

      Will they finally find their twin brothers? Will they be reunited with their parents? There’s only one way to find out!

      Bring your family, bring your friends, bring a picnic and laugh until your sides split.

      Picnicking from 6pm with pre-show entertainment from 7.15pm.

  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.07.05-2022.12.31

    An exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

    ‘People! Power! Protest!’ explores the story of protest in Jersey, from the Corn Riots of 1769 to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

    Jersey may be small but Islanders have made their voices heard loud and clear over the years. Jersey has a fascinating history of protest in the Island and the theme of the exhibition coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Code of Laws that was introduced in response to the Corn Riots.

    The exhibition explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today, from historic protests, such as the Corn Riots, to more recent protests such as Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.

    Among the items on display is the official 18th century court records showing the redacted demands of the Corn Riots protestors, and the petition signed by thousands of people to try and save Queen’s Valley from being flooded in the 1980s. There are also the banners and placards from other protests over the years and photographs of significant post-war campaigns and demonstrations.

    As you enter the exhibition ‘People! Power! Protest!’, you’ll see a  stunning graffiti-style entrance wall by designer James Carter, of Midnight Industries. Celebrated local artist Ian Rolls has also created a new version of his iconic climate stripes mural in the environmental protest section of the exhibition.   Visitors can to listen to stories of protest and share their own memories of their involvement in campaigns and demonstrations over the years.

    8:30 pm-10:30 pm
    2022.07.09

    This is a night of quirky musical comedy-esq tunes and stories with bells and whistles and Mark Sims.
    ‘Genuine Martin’ is commonly described as ‘a bit like Victoria Wood except without a Northern accent which is a real shame coz that really adds something’.
    You’ll like this if you like Sergent Pipons Lonely Hearts Club band and have good taste and a great sense of humour.
    Mark (#jerseypopsongs) is in love with Jersey and he’d probably make little channel islands, given the chance.
    If you’ve had the musical equivalent of beans on toast every day for 30 years and you are looking forward to beans on toast tomorrow – it’s probably not for you. BUT if you are hankering after some exploratory spaghetti hoops, with some wild blue note stilton with perhaps a mystery sonic egg dip served on a minted allegro tea cake – then don’t come for dinner, but you’ll probably like the show!
    Mark plays guitar and sings
    Martin plays piano and sings with bells and whistles.
    Songs include:
    Beaver Song
    Island Games Orgy
    States of Jersey Ministerial Talent Competition
    Bum Sniffers Paradise.

    Whilst ‘Genuine’ Martin Coxshall tells engaging stories and sings about Beavers, the famous Island Games Orgy and the States of Jersey Ministerial Talent Competition, Mark Sims decalres a shameless love affair with the curves and lumps of the island.
    Having made it to nearly four parishes, our world tour is definitely underway and at time of writing I’ve even sold out of Tea Towels! Don’t worry – I’ll get another 1000 printed before this gig!
    You might arrive at my gig with curious expectations, but you’ll leave with a feeling of elation that goes along with permissive naughtiness and a longing for a some more.

  • Tour de Jersey 2022
    All day
    2022.07.10

    Tour de Jersey is back for 2022 and it is going to be bigger, better and accessible for all abilities and ages!
    Sponsored by Ravenscroft, this is a fantastic opportunity to explore Jersey by bike while also raising funds for Hospice and all those who need our specialist care.
    The four routes have been designed by Cog and Sprocket owner, Ian Williams, and have been designed for riders of all abilities. So grab your bike and come and join us for a fantastic day of cycling!
    The Routes
    This year’s routes have been built with all abilities in mind; whether you are an avid cyclist who wants to leg stretch to 100km, an intermediate cyclist wanting to take on a 50km challenge, a family of beginner cyclists wishing to take on a 24km route, or want to introduce brand new cyclists to a gentle 7km cycle.
    100km
    A leg stretch of a route around the Island, taking in many hills and stunning scenery as you go.
    50km
    A challenge but achievable, the 50km route is designed for cyclists who want to be challenged but don’t feel confident taking on the full 100km. Features some hills and leg stretch areas.
    24km Family Route
    A great route for the younger cyclists, starting at Albert pier and following the cycle track all the way to Corbiere and back.
    7km Family Route
    Our newest route, and something for the novice and young cyclists, or those on scooters and balance bikes, this route starts at Albert Pier and follows the cycle track to the burger bar and back.
    *Please note: Route maps and Strava routes will be updated and communicated in June.
    Bikes:
    This year we have opened allowed bikes to include electric bikes, to enable more people to take part. Why not hire an Evie bike and take on one of the routes.
    Please note: scooters and balance bikes are only permitted on the 7km route.
    A message from the sponsor, Ravenscroft
    This is Ravenscroft’s third year as sponsor of Jersey Hospice’s Tour de Jersey and we are thrilled to once again be involved. It is one of a number of community events which Ravenscroft supports including the Swimarathon, True Grit, Jersey Dance Awards, Pride of Jersey, the NSPCC Ball and the Ravenscroft Relay as part of the Jersey Marathon. We also sponsor JS Juniors, the golf inter-insular, ladies day at Les Lande and triathlete Jack Kennedy and make many charitable donations throughout the year.
    Our community support continues to increase as we passionately believe that we should invest back into the communities who invest with us. Our client numbers in Jersey continue to grow as we help islanders achieve their investment goals. As an independently owned investment services group, Ravenscroft now has £8.76bn of assets under administration for both private and institutional clients from around the world. We employ more than 130 people across our offices in Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man and the UK.

      The four routes have been designed by Cog and Sprocket owner, Ian Williams, and have been designed for riders of all abilities. So grab your bike and come and join us for a fantastic day of cycling!
      The Routes
      This year’s routes have been built with all abilities in mind; whether you are an avid cyclist who wants to leg stretch to 100km, an intermediate cyclist wanting to take on a 50km challenge, a family of beginner cyclists wishing to take on a 24km route, or want to introduce brand new cyclists to a gentle 7km cycle.
      100km
      A leg stretch of a route around the Island, taking in many hills and stunning scenery as you go.
      50km
      A challenge but achievable, the 50km route is designed for cyclists who want to be challenged but don’t feel confident taking on the full 100km. Features some hills and leg stretch areas.
      24km Family Route
      A great route for the younger cyclists, starting at Albert pier and following the cycle track all the way to Corbiere and back.
      7km Family Route
      Our newest route, and something for the novice and young cyclists, or those on scooters and balance bikes, this route starts at Albert Pier and follows the cycle track to the burger bar and back.
      *Please note: Route maps and Strava routes will be updated and communicated in June.
      Bikes:
      This year we have opened allowed bikes to include electric bikes, to enable more people to take part. Why not hire an Evie bike and take on one of the routes.
      Please note: scooters and balance bikes are only permitted on the 7km route.

  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.07.12-2022.12.31

    An exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

    ‘People! Power! Protest!’ explores the story of protest in Jersey, from the Corn Riots of 1769 to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

    Jersey may be small but Islanders have made their voices heard loud and clear over the years. Jersey has a fascinating history of protest in the Island and the theme of the exhibition coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Code of Laws that was introduced in response to the Corn Riots.

    The exhibition explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today, from historic protests, such as the Corn Riots, to more recent protests such as Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.

    Among the items on display is the official 18th century court records showing the redacted demands of the Corn Riots protestors, and the petition signed by thousands of people to try and save Queen’s Valley from being flooded in the 1980s. There are also the banners and placards from other protests over the years and photographs of significant post-war campaigns and demonstrations.

    As you enter the exhibition ‘People! Power! Protest!’, you’ll see a  stunning graffiti-style entrance wall by designer James Carter, of Midnight Industries. Celebrated local artist Ian Rolls has also created a new version of his iconic climate stripes mural in the environmental protest section of the exhibition.   Visitors can to listen to stories of protest and share their own memories of their involvement in campaigns and demonstrations over the years.

  • CAHUN – a retrospective
    7:30 pm-5:00 pm
    2022.07.14-2022.07.17

    • THURSDAY 14 JULY – SATURDAY 16 JULY: 7.30PM
    • SUNDAY 17 JULY: 3PM

    Claude Cahun steps out of time, removes her masks, and takes us behind her enigmatic photographic self-portraits.

    She conjures up a Chorus of Cahuns to enact her extraordinary life story from a difficult childhood in provincial Nantes, via the political and creative excitement of Paris, to an idyllic retreat in Jersey, while always challenging conventions of gender and identity.

    During the Occupation, together with her life partner Marcel Moore, Cahun engages all of her skills as a writer and artist, risking her life to heroically resist the Nazis through her persona The Soldier With No Name.

    This new play by Jacqueline Mézec, commissioned by Jersey Arts Centre and directed by Daniel Austin, is provocative, inspiring and moving with its black humour, vivid storytelling and poetry.

    Suitable for 9 years +

    Before visiting Jersey Arts Centre, please read our COVID-19 guidelines here.

  • Opera at the Library: Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini
    7:30 pm-10:30 pm
    2022.07.14

    Coproduction 2022 Opéra de Rennes, Angers Nantes Opéra, avec le soutien de la Fondation Orange et La Caisse d’Epargne Bretagne Pays-de-Loire.
    Madame Butterfly is one of the most performed and appreciated operas in the world. The Maggio Musicale Fiorantino’s production by Fabio Ceresa, with its Japanese aesthetic, underlines all its elegance.
    The tragic love story takes place in Japan, the land of all fantasies at the beginning of the 20th century. A young geisha, Cio Cio San is seduced and then abandoned by an indifferent American officer. While she dreams of his return, Pinkerton actually returns, but with his new wife and to get his child back. This story of thwarted love also illustrates the clash of cultures between two civilisations at the beginning of the 20th century, a question of otherness that has a particularly strong echo today.
    Opera sung in Italian, with French subtitles. Duration 2h45, including intermission.
    This will be a projection of Rennes Opera’s performance on June 16th 2022.
    Funded by the Government of Jersey. FREE entry to all. Limited capacity of 120 seats

  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.07.19-2022.12.31

    An exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

    ‘People! Power! Protest!’ explores the story of protest in Jersey, from the Corn Riots of 1769 to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

    Jersey may be small but Islanders have made their voices heard loud and clear over the years. Jersey has a fascinating history of protest in the Island and the theme of the exhibition coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Code of Laws that was introduced in response to the Corn Riots.

    The exhibition explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today, from historic protests, such as the Corn Riots, to more recent protests such as Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.

    Among the items on display is the official 18th century court records showing the redacted demands of the Corn Riots protestors, and the petition signed by thousands of people to try and save Queen’s Valley from being flooded in the 1980s. There are also the banners and placards from other protests over the years and photographs of significant post-war campaigns and demonstrations.

    As you enter the exhibition ‘People! Power! Protest!’, you’ll see a  stunning graffiti-style entrance wall by designer James Carter, of Midnight Industries. Celebrated local artist Ian Rolls has also created a new version of his iconic climate stripes mural in the environmental protest section of the exhibition.   Visitors can to listen to stories of protest and share their own memories of their involvement in campaigns and demonstrations over the years.

    2022.07.23

    Your chance to see some of the unique, beautiful, unusual and sometimes commonplace objects, works of art, archives, textiles and archaeological material cared for by Jersey Heritage, dating from the Ice Age to the present day.

    As part of the CBA Festival of Archaeology, come and see some of the archaeological treasures in the collection, with our Curator of Archaeology and Finds Officer on hand to talk about the different items.

    The collections that Jersey Heritage look after comprise hundreds of thousands of items, including archaeology, social history objects, art and archive material. The majority of these collections are stored in one of our object stores or at the Jersey Archive, while some items can be seen on display at our visitor sites.

    Our ‘Meet the Collections’ events will give members of the public the opportunity to see some of the fascinating items in our collections that are not usually on display at one of our sites. With a different theme each month, our collections team will be selecting some of their favourite objects to show and will be on hand at these events to talk to the public about what these objects are, where they came from and what they can tell us about our Island’s history.

    Come along and see something different from the collection. All events will be open from 10am-2pm and are free to attend.

  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.07.26-2022.12.31

    An exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

    ‘People! Power! Protest!’ explores the story of protest in Jersey, from the Corn Riots of 1769 to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

    Jersey may be small but Islanders have made their voices heard loud and clear over the years. Jersey has a fascinating history of protest in the Island and the theme of the exhibition coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Code of Laws that was introduced in response to the Corn Riots.

    The exhibition explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today, from historic protests, such as the Corn Riots, to more recent protests such as Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.

    Among the items on display is the official 18th century court records showing the redacted demands of the Corn Riots protestors, and the petition signed by thousands of people to try and save Queen’s Valley from being flooded in the 1980s. There are also the banners and placards from other protests over the years and photographs of significant post-war campaigns and demonstrations.

    As you enter the exhibition ‘People! Power! Protest!’, you’ll see a  stunning graffiti-style entrance wall by designer James Carter, of Midnight Industries. Celebrated local artist Ian Rolls has also created a new version of his iconic climate stripes mural in the environmental protest section of the exhibition.   Visitors can to listen to stories of protest and share their own memories of their involvement in campaigns and demonstrations over the years.

    • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
      All day
      2022.07.26-2022.12.31

      An exhibition that explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today.

      ‘People! Power! Protest!’ explores the story of protest in Jersey, from the Corn Riots of 1769 to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020.

      Jersey may be small but Islanders have made their voices heard loud and clear over the years. Jersey has a fascinating history of protest in the Island and the theme of the exhibition coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Code of Laws that was introduced in response to the Corn Riots.

      The exhibition explores how the right to protest has shaped and influenced the Island that we know today, from historic protests, such as the Corn Riots, to more recent protests such as Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.

      Among the items on display is the official 18th century court records showing the redacted demands of the Corn Riots protestors, and the petition signed by thousands of people to try and save Queen’s Valley from being flooded in the 1980s. There are also the banners and placards from other protests over the years and photographs of significant post-war campaigns and demonstrations.

      As you enter the exhibition ‘People! Power! Protest!’, you’ll see a  stunning graffiti-style entrance wall by designer James Carter, of Midnight Industries. Celebrated local artist Ian Rolls has also created a new version of his iconic climate stripes mural in the environmental protest section of the exhibition.   Visitors can to listen to stories of protest and share their own memories of their involvement in campaigns and demonstrations over the years.

      The Goodwyf is not at Hamptonne every day, so to avoid disappointment please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955

      As Viscount of Jersey during the English Civil War, 1642 – 1651, it was Laurens Hamptonne’s duty to make some of the most important public announcements of the time.  In January 1649, shortly after the execution of King Charles I, Hamptonne made his most memorable pronouncements in the Royal Square, St Helier; the reading of the Proclamation of Charles II as King.  When not at work int he Royal Count, Laurens enjoys entertaining visitors in his beautiful country home with stories of a time when Jersey was in the eye of the story, as Royalists and Parliamentarians crashed together on the shores of the Channel Islands. ,
