  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.05.03-2022.12.31

    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.

    Early Bird SOLD OUT
    VA have the pleasure to announce they will be bringing arguably the biggest act in UK dance music right now to Jersey in May 2022. Following on from their already sold out Sub Focus show they have secured the incredible Wilkinson to headline a very special May Bank Holiday weekend on Sunday 8th May. We invite you to join us to the biggest Splash event this year, tickets will sell out fast so please secure your ticket asap if you wish to attend!!!
    Hailing from the leafy suburbs of South West London is one of the UK’s best known electronic artists…Wilkinson.His first insight into making music came aged of 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark ‘Wilkinson’ joined a few bands playing at venues as far as the Birmingham NEC and as close as the local old people’s home.This swiftly ended at the age of 14 when Wilkinson discovered his passion for dance music. In his final year at college, he tried his hand at making beats, leading him to buy his first bits of production gear and turning his bed-room into a studio. A few years and part time jobs later, after driving his family mad with large amounts of bass loosening the brickwork of his house, Mark secured himself a studio not far from his home.
    After fine-tuning his production skills, Wilkinson passed a few songs on to Hospital Records via Cyantific, which led to his first release on Hospital’s’ Sick Music 2 compilation. A few months later he sent a folder of tunes to Ram Records and within days received a phone call from Andy C inviting him for a meeting at the Ram HQ.
    Fast forward a few years later and Wilkinson has cemented himself as one of the most successful stars in dance music. Following his club anthems ‘Tonight’, ‘Take You Higher’, ‘Too Close’ and countless others…Wilkinson released ‘Half Light’ charting #20, Dirty Love which peaked at #10, ‘Hopelessly Coping’ peaking at #23 on the UK Top 40 and ‘Afterglow’ which became a top 5 hit on the UK Chart, selling 1.2 million copies, racking up over 200 million streams and certified with a Platinum selling disc. To date he’s sold a mighty 3 million singles and been streamed over half a BILLION times!
    His debut album ‘Lasers Not Included’ went to number 1 on the iTunes Dance Chart in 10 countries and his tour schedule takes him across the globe performing everywhere from Glastonbury,SW4,Reading & Leeds to EDC Las Vegas, his Ibiza residency at Amnesia and festivals from New York to New Zealand.
    He’s gone on to build a fierce live reputation with his band over the last 5 years, selling out London’s Electric,The Forum and Roundhouse, and remarkably the iconic Brixton Academy twice!Not to mention headlining international festivals including Snowbombing, Pukkelpop and Sziget.
    Having remixed and collaborated with the likes of Rag N Bone Man, The Prodigy,Ed Sheeran, Chase & Status,Wretch 32,Naughty Boy, Laura Mvula and Becky Hill, he’s scooped ‘Best Single’, ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Video’, ‘Best Producer’ and ‘Best Live Act’ at the National Drum & Bass Awards, not to mention the VEVO Viewers Award at the MVA’s.
    His second, album ‘Hypnotic’ (released April 2017) became the most successful D&B album of the year, charting at #14 on the UK iTunes Album chart and became a top 20 iTunes Album across 6 countries, winning him an army of loyal supporters and some unlikely fans from the likes of Zane Lowe, Skrillex and even a certain Elton John!
    2020 saw Wilkinson team up with fellow D&B titan Sub Focus to release their collaboration album ‘Portals’ via EMI. The record charted at #1 on the OCC Official Dance Chart and saw all three singles play listed by BBC Radio1. In fact, over recent years Wilkinson has remarkably been playlisted by BBC Radio1 14 times!

    All day
    2022.05.10-2022.12.31

    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
    2022.05.17-2022.12.31

    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.

      Thanks to sponsorhip from Mourant a creative workshop was held for the students in October 2021 with artist Eliza Anna Reine and art teacher Jacque Rutter

      The ‘winners’ creations are published on the main pages of the book but all the students who took part have been included

  • PEOPLE! POWER! PROTEST!
    All day
    2022.05.24-2022.12.31

    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.

  • Living History – Hamptonne Goodwyf
    10:00 am-4:00 pm

    HAMPTONNE GOODWYF

    10am to 4pm

    Meet the Goodwyf, who looks after the house of her master, Monsieur Laurens Hamptonne in the year 1649.  She is very respectful of her employer who is a well educated and important man, however this doesn’t prevent her from spreading the odd bit of gossip from the Parish of St Lawrence.  The Goodwyf will tell you all about Hamptonne’s royal connections and give your an insight into her day to day life, including cooking on the open fire, making soap and candles.

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