    All day
    2024.05.01-2025.10.17

    We are what we eat! An exhibition celebrating Jersey’s rich heritage of farming, fishing and food

    Our Island identity is shaped by the landscape, our south-facing côtils, the sea that surrounds us. From our iconic Jersey Royal potatoes to our world-famous Jersey cows to our stunning shellfish, Jersey is celebrated for its food.

    Step back in time to find an Island covered in apple orchards when cider was our major export, explore the future of farming in an Island with a growing population, and discover some of our local specialities like the famous ‘merveille’ or Jersey wonder.

    Our new exhibition will give you plenty of food for thought!

    Meet Sir Walter at the Castle and he’ll tell you about his adventures at sea

    Sir Walter Raleigh has been described as ‘great man of the Elizabethan age’, and ‘Jersey’s most distinguished Governor’, being poet, soldier, historian and explorer, among other things.

Raleigh was also responsible for the preservation of Mont Orgueil Castle from destruction at the time when Elizabeth Castle was being built.

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.05.03-2025.05.03

    The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

    In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

    Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.05.03-2026.08.29

    We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

    This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

    Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

    • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
      All day
      2024.05.03-2025.05.03

      The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

      In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

      Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.05.03-2026.08.29

      We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

      This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

      Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

    • Bouonnefemme

      2024.05.03-2025.01.01

      Meet Rose Le Brun, the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne, who will let you in on local secrets and village gossip

      Rose’s predecessor, Old Maud, had been at Hamptonne for years, but she travelled to St Aubin to see family and never returned. Perhaps the plague got her – they had a lot of it down there.

      Rose was born in the parish of St Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

      Meet the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm (except first Friday of the month when the performance will be on a Saturday)

      If meeting the Bouonnefemme is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

    *New for 2024 & our latest project*

    This Tour is of the WW2 German Resistance Nest Mole Verclut, which we call the St Catherine’s Bunker locally. This tour provides a guided walk around the Bunker and Tunnels the occupying German forces built during the Second World War.

    At the start of the war, this was a low-priority site for the Germans, but by July 1944, it faced the American lines, which were now 14 miles away on the coast of France; by August 1944, the area was upgraded to include an artillery battery and a 150cm coastal searchlight. This is the only way to visit this site, and all funds raised from this tour are going back into the restoration of this site.

    DAILY MAIL

His highly anticipated follow up show Made in Britain went on to sell out every single performance (including extra shows) at the Edinburgh Fringe and gained spectacular critical acclaim, with a smash hit nationwide tour the following year. His third show Teztify once again delivered a spectacularly powerful, provocative and brilliantly funny hour of topical stand up, delivering to packed out audiences night after night.

This is the only way to visit this site, and all funds raised from this tour are going back into the restoration of this site.

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.05.06-2025.05.06

    The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

    In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

    Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

  • Francois Nicolle
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.05.06-2024.12.16

    It’s 1865 and Francois Nicolle, her husband, mother and children live at Hamptonne Farm as tenant farmers. It’s a hard life ensuring that they can make payments to the landlord and have enough to live on, especially as Mr Nicolle is not in the best of health with his nerves.

    The children have to help on the farm and Francois tries her best to school them and teach them their letters and numbers when they are not busy with harvest or planting. But there is always the animals to take care of.

    Francois says “I’m a country girl, having been born in the parish of St Mary, so I’m used to hard work. But with so many children to care for as well, the cooking and cleaning chores are relentless.”

    Meet Francois Nicolle every Monday from 10am to 4pm.

    If meeting Francois Nicolle is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.05.06-2026.09.01

    We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

    This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

    Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

    • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
      All day
      2024.05.06-2025.05.06

      The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

      In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

      Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.05.06-2024.12.16

      It’s 1865 and Francois Nicolle, her husband, mother and children live at Hamptonne Farm as tenant farmers. It’s a hard life ensuring that they can make payments to the landlord and have enough to live on, especially as Mr Nicolle is not in the best of health with his nerves.

      The children have to help on the farm and Francois tries her best to school them and teach them their letters and numbers when they are not busy with harvest or planting. But there is always the animals to take care of.

      Francois says “I’m a country girl, having been born in the parish of St Mary, so I’m used to hard work. But with so many children to care for as well, the cooking and cleaning chores are relentless.”

      Meet Francois Nicolle every Monday from 10am to 4pm.

      If meeting Francois Nicolle is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.05.06-2026.09.01

      We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

      This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

      Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

See some of the surgical and medical instruments of the 18th century that were available to the surgeon in his job.

    2024.05.07-2025.01.05

    Meet Rose Le Brun, the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne, who will let you in on local secrets and village gossip

    Rose’s predecessor, Old Maud, had been at Hamptonne for years, but she travelled to St Aubin to see family and never returned. Perhaps the plague got her – they had a lot of it down there.

    Rose was born in the parish of St Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

    Meet the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm (except first Friday of the month when the performance will be on a Saturday)

    If meeting the Bouonnefemme is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

  • Longhouse Tour and Fire Lighting
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.05.07-2025.04.08

    his 20-metre long replica Longhouse was built over two years by volunteers, with oversight from Ancient Technology expert Luke Winter. Since it was officially opened in 2019, volunteers have performed day-to-day maintenance tasks using authentic techniques and tools, and act as guides, demonstrators and interpreters to explain the project to visitors. They are also continually researching, experimenting and training to acquire more Stone Age skills to share, including basket-making and flintknapping.

    Every Tuesday, a member of the volunteer team lights a fire in the Longhouse using authentic techniques. This adds warmth to the building but also stops any insect infestation in the traditional straw roof. During your visit, the volunteer will also talk about the traditional methods used and the lessons learned during the build.

    If speaking to a Longhouse volunteer is going to be the highlight of your trip to La Hougue Bie, please call +44 (0) 1534 853 823 before you visit to check they are confirmed for that date.

    Rose’s predecessor, Old Maud, had been at Hamptonne for years, but she travelled to St Aubin to see family and never returned. Perhaps the plague got her – they had a lot of it down there.

    Rose was born in the parish of St Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

    Meet the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm (except first Friday of the month when the performance will be on a Saturday)

    If meeting the Bouonnefemme is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

    All day
    2024.05.09-2025.05.09

    The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

    In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

    Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

    2024.05.09-2026.09.04

    We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

    This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

    Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

      All day
      2024.05.09-2025.05.09

      The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

      In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

      Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

      If meeting the Bouonnefemme is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

  • Jean Efflam Bavouzet with the Jersey Chamber Orchestra
    7:30 pm-9:30 pm
    2024.05.11

    Music in Action invites you to a celebratory festival concert with the Jersey Chamber Orchestra, Music in Action Choir and soloists Jean Efflam Bavouzet and his piano partner, Maria Nemecz. Join us for a concert of favourites including Mozart’s Double Piano Concerto and Haydn’s Symphony No. 47, led by the chief conductor of the Jersey Chamber Orchestra, Eamonn Dougan.

    Following our festival theme of mirrors, we open with Der Spiegel von Arkadien (‘The Mirror of Arcadia’), a stunning piece by Süssmayr: the man famous for completing Mozart’s Requiem. Süssmayr‘s direct knowledge of Mozart’s technique is clear in this work.

    You can observe the parallels between the composers through the exquisite masterpiece that follows, by Mozart himself: his Double Piano Concerto. In this piece, the interplay between our soloists, Jean Efflam and Maria, will be fascinating to watch.

    The second half features the Music in Action Choir performing Haydn’s Insanae et vanae curae, Frank’s Panis Angelicus with soloist Omara Silvester, and Mozart’s Ave verum corpus.

    The Jersey Chamber Orchestra will complete the programme with Haydn’s Symphony No. 47, one of his celebrated masterpieces. To continue our mirrors theme, Haydn demonstrates his technical skill with a third movement that creates a palindrome – it’s the same from front to back and back to front!

    Don’t miss your opportunity to join Music in Action at this exclusive event hosted in the beautiful St Helier Methodist Church, where you will enjoy an ensemble of famous musical works: a night of classics to remember!

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.05.12-2025.05.12

    The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

    In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

    Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.05.12-2026.09.07

    We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

    This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

    Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

    ***BONUS!***

    A chance to try Liberation recipe cakes and parsnip coffee plus Force 135 Liberation reenactors will be on hand as well as possibly an iconic JEEP as used at the Liberation!
    This bunker is located on St. Aubin’s Bay promenade opposite La Motte Ford next to the ‘Old Station Café and is an example of a flanking anti-tank gun casemate mounting an ex-Czech 4.7cm PakK 36 (t) anti-tank gun with a coaxial MG 37 (t) machine gun which was built into a Victorian slipway to both block access off the beach to an attacker and camouflage the bunker behind a stout granite sea wall. The bunker is also unusual for mounting a small observation bell with a replica now replacing the top of the original removed for scrap in c1948.
    Often described as the “Jewel of the Atlantikwall!”, the bunker largely escaped post war stripping out and scrap drives and today uniquely boasts a near time capsule appearance from original panelling with original posters still attached to rare complete examples of the ventilation equipment used to protect the bunker’s crew from gas attack and remarkably, the bunker’s lighting still uses the original German cabling!

      All day
      2024.05.12-2025.05.12

      The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

      In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

      Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.05.12-2026.09.07

      We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

      This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

      Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.05.15-2025.05.15

    The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

    In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

    Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

    2024.05.15-2026.09.10

    We examine the evidence of the Island’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, including Jersey’s Lieutenant-Governor Sir George Carteret who was a founder member of the Royal Africa Company that traded in ivory, gold and enslaved people in the 17th century; Captain François Messervy of Jersey who was killed in 1722 during an uprising on board his slave ship off the coast of Africa; and Jersey trader Josué Mauger who in 1752 advertised enslaved people for sale in Nova Scotia, Canada, where his business was based.

    This exhibition takes place in the Victorian House at Jersey Museum, with its impressive mahogany staircase, because new research has shown that the house was built partly on the profits of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Trade Roots’ explores Jersey’s historic links to slavery, from Islanders who owned mahogany plantations overseas and traded in slave-produced goods, to those who campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

    Thought-provoking, and at times challenging, this exhibition exposes some uncomfortable new stories from Jersey’s past and examines the legacy and impact of transatlantic slavery on the Island’s community today.

      All day
      2024.05.15-2025.05.15

      The world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered in Jersey, this exhibition explores why people might have buried it there.

      In 2012 the world’s largest Celtic hoard was discovered buried in a field in Jersey. This exhibition explores what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey, 2000 years ago and looks closely at some of the items found within the hoard.

      Explore the time when Roman armies marched through Europe, 2000 years ago, they left behind them a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there. Using scientific and archaeological research we can learn more about the people that buried the hoard, about their lives and customs. Ground-breaking research can tell us more about the moment and the place the hoard was buried. It might even challenge some long-held ideas about why hoards were buried.

      Rose was born in the parish of St Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

      We are what we eat! An exhibition celebrating Jersey’s rich heritage of farming, fishing and food

      Our Island identity is shaped by the landscape, our south-facing côtils, the sea that surrounds us. From our iconic Jersey Royal potatoes to our world-famous Jersey cows to our stunning shellfish, Jersey is celebrated for its food.

      Step back in time to find an Island covered in apple orchards when cider was our major export, explore the future of farming in an Island with a growing population, and discover some of our local specialities like the famous ‘merveille’ or Jersey wonder.

      Our new exhibition will give you plenty of food for thought!

    • Bouonnefemme
      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.05.16-2025.01.14

      Meet Rose Le Brun, the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne, who will let you in on local secrets and village gossip

      Rose’s predecessor, Old Maud, had been at Hamptonne for years, but she travelled to St Aubin to see family and never returned. Perhaps the plague got her – they had a lot of it down there.

      Rose was born in the parish of St Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.

      Meet the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm (except first Friday of the month when the performance will be on a Saturday)

      If meeting the Bouonnefemme is going to be the highlight of your trip to Hamptonne Country Life Museum, please call +44 (0) 1534 863 955 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.
