  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2021.08.02-2021.12.31

    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.

  • Six of One, Half Dozen of Other – St Clement Trail
    9:00 am-11:30 am
    2021.08.08

    The second walk with Tom Bunting around the Parish of St Clement, by area the smallest, yet the one with the fourth largest population.

    Heading North from St Clements Parish Hall, this lovely walk takes in woodland and the old railway track, which fell into disuse around 1929 with the arrival of the char-a-bancs to the Island.

    We are guided past fields of our most famous crop the Jersey Royals to view a 19th Century folly, used as a lookout by the occupying forces during World War II.

    Meandering through this part of St Clement allows us to encompass 5000 years of history in 15 minutes, as the Dolmen Ube, Nicolle Tower and German bunker are all in close proximity.

    Sloping woodland takes us to Samares and onto the orchid fields. We pause to view Maupertuis farm, a substantial farm complex dating from the early 19th Century.

    We can also view one of the latest acquisitions by Jersey National Trust for the benefit of Islanders, a “green corridor” next to the farm, which will ensure vital protection of our heritage and unique flora & fauna for many years to come.

      2021.08.12

      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.

      Tickets can be obtained at the Castle Ferry Kiosk, Les Jardins de la Mer, West Park, St Helier, JE3 3NU

      Through our Wellness Wednesday series we will begin to explore this concept through practices which we hope you can take into your everyday.

      Led by experienced yoga instructors, Joe and Sharnelle, we are hosting four different vinyasa yoga events at special places around the Island.

      As part of the launch of the Aspiring Jersey Island Geopark we are curating unique opportunities for you to discover more about Jersey while interacting with nature and practicing wellness.

      Everything in nature is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Knowledge of the five elements allows the yogi to understand the laws of nature and to use yoga to attain greater health, power, knowledge, wisdom and happiness.

    10:45 am-12:00 pm
    2021.08.31

    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.

    Tickets can be obtained at the Castle Ferry Kiosk, Les Jardins de la Mer, West Park, St Helier, JE3 3NU

    For more information you can contact Tracey on 07797 740664 or call the Castle Ferry Kiosk on +44 (0)1534 634048
