    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!

    Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

    In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

    WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

    Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

    • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
    • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
    • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
    • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

    You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

    You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

    North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

    And some other walks to give you inspo:

    Walks from dawn to dusk

    Woodland walks

    Buggy friendly walks

    Coast to Coast walks

     

    WHAT DOES IT COST TO TAKE PART?

    Adult: £10

  • Francois Nicolle
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.04.01-2024.11.11

    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.

    Something strange and delightful has been happening at Hamptonne over the winter!

    Do you believe in magic? A visit to Hamptonne and La Hougue Bie may just change your mind.

    Something strange and delightful has been happening there over the winter. Les P’tits Faîtchieaux, or little folk, are back and they have been busy creating a new home. In fact, they have been so busy, we think there could be a whole village!

    We hope the fairies will stay for some time and we’d like them to settle in properly before being visited by your little people, so take the opportunity to visit them from the end of January.

  • Wild Islands: through the lens
    All day
    2024.04.02-2025.06.20

    Forty talented photographers from Jersey and Guernsey have contributed to this wonderful exhibition, which is the first to take place in our new museum space at Hamptonne.

    More than 200 images, printed on banners, capture the incredibly rich biodiversity we have in the Channel Islands – from birds, insects and mammals, to wildflowers, fungi and sea life, with a focus particularly upon Jersey.

  • Bouonnefemme
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.04.02-2024.12.01

    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.

  • Longhouse Tour and Fire Lighting
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.04.02-2025.03.04

    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.

      2024.04.02-2024.07.05

      Something strange and delightful has been happening at Hamptonne over the winter!

      Do you believe in magic? A visit to Hamptonne and La Hougue Bie may just change your mind.

      Something strange and delightful has been happening there over the winter. Les P’tits Faîtchieaux, or little folk, are back and they have been busy creating a new home. In fact, they have been so busy, we think there could be a whole village!

      We hope the fairies will stay for some time and we’d like them to settle in properly before being visited by your little people, so take the opportunity to visit them from the end of January.

    • Wild Islands: through the lens
      All day
      2024.04.02-2025.06.20

      Forty talented photographers from Jersey and Guernsey have contributed to this wonderful exhibition, which is the first to take place in our new museum space at Hamptonne.

      More than 200 images, printed on banners, capture the incredibly rich biodiversity we have in the Channel Islands – from birds, insects and mammals, to wildflowers, fungi and sea life, with a focus particularly upon Jersey.

      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.04.02-2024.12.01

      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.

    • Longhouse Tour and Fire Lighting
      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.04.02-2025.03.04

      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.

    All day
    2024.04.03-2025.04.03

    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
    2024.04.03-2026.07.30

    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.

  • Easter Holidays – Purple Dew Removal
    1:30 pm-3:00 pm
    2024.04.03

    Help us manage a non-native and invasive plant species. Kindly sponsored by Jersey Electricity.

    We will be holding a session, removing the Purple Dew plant from the coastal strips of St. Ouens Bay.

    The Purple Dew Plant is an alien invader! It is a non-native plant species that has found its way onto the coastal strips of St. Ouens bay. Due to the plant thriving in sandy environments, if not managed correctly, the plant would otherwise blanket the grass and sandy areas of the bay, suffocating the growth of Jersey’s rich and diverse native species that would normally thrive in this area. Purple Dew plant will also prevent some insects, such as solitary bees, from accessing their nesting sites.

    So we really need your help to remove this ailen species from our coastline!

    No tools are necessary and we will be hand-pulling the plant from the sandy ground, but please do bring your own gloves if possible.

    An email will be sent to those who have signed up prior to the day to confirm it is still going ahead.

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Kindly supported by Jersey Electricity.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.04.03-2026.07.30

      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.

    • Easter Holidays – Purple Dew Removal
      1:30 pm-3:00 pm
      2024.04.03
      Help us manage a non-native and invasive plant species. Kindly sponsored by Jersey Electricity.

      We will be holding a session, removing the Purple Dew plant from the coastal strips of St. Ouens Bay.

      The Purple Dew Plant is an alien invader! It is a non-native plant species that has found its way onto the coastal strips of St. Ouens bay. Due to the plant thriving in sandy environments, if not managed correctly, the plant would otherwise blanket the grass and sandy areas of the bay, suffocating the growth of Jersey’s rich and diverse native species that would normally thrive in this area. Purple Dew plant will also prevent some insects, such as solitary bees, from accessing their nesting sites.

      So we really need your help to remove this ailen species from our coastline!

      No tools are necessary and we will be hand-pulling the plant from the sandy ground, but please do bring your own gloves if possible.

      An email will be sent to those who have signed up prior to the day to confirm it is still going ahead.

      We look forward to seeing you!

      Kindly supported by Jersey Electricity.

  • Walk This Way!
    All day
    2024.04.04-2024.05.03

    Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

    In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

    WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

    Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

    • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
    • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
    • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
    • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

    You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

    You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

    North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

    And some other walks to give you inspo:

    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.

    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)

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.05-2024.05.04

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.04.06-2025.04.06

    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.

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.04.06-2026.08.02

    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.

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.06-2024.05.05

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

       

      WHAT DOES IT COST TO TAKE PART?

    • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
      All day
      2024.04.06-2025.04.06

      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.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.04.06-2026.08.02

      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.

  • Les P’tits Faîtchieaux
    All day
    2024.04.08-2024.07.11

    Something strange and delightful has been happening at Hamptonne over the winter!

    Do you believe in magic? A visit to Hamptonne and La Hougue Bie may just change your mind.

    Something strange and delightful has been happening there over the winter. Les P’tits Faîtchieaux, or little folk, are back and they have been busy creating a new home. In fact, they have been so busy, we think there could be a whole village!

    We hope the fairies will stay for some time and we’d like them to settle in properly before being visited by your little people, so take the opportunity to visit them from the end of January.

  • Walk This Way!
    All day
    2024.04.08-2024.05.07

    Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

    In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

    WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

    Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

    • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
    • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
    • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
    • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

    You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

    You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

    North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

    And some other walks to give you inspo:

    Walks from dawn to dusk

    Woodland walks

    Buggy friendly walks

    Coast to Coast walks

  • Francois Nicolle
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.04.08-2024.11.18

    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.

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.04.09-2025.04.09

    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.

    2024.04.09-2024.12.08

    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.

    The Master Gunner will ensure that your backs are straight, your chins are high, and bellies are tucked-in as you stand to attention for the Midday Parade on the expanse of the Castle’s Parade Ground.

Then finally prepare yourself for the resounding bang of the signal gun and flintlock musket.

  • Longhouse Tour and Fire Lighting
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    2024.04.09-2025.03.11

    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.

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.04.09-2026.08.05

    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.

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.09-2024.05.08

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

       

      WHAT DOES IT COST TO TAKE PART?

    • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
      All day
      2024.04.09-2025.04.09

      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.

    • Bouonnefemme
      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.04.09-2024.12.08

      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.

      2024.04.09-2024.12.09

      Stand to attention for the Midday Parade and prepare yourself for the resounding bang of the signal gun

      The Master Gunner will ensure that your backs are straight, your chins are high, and bellies are tucked-in as you stand to attention for the Midday Parade on the expanse of the Castle’s Parade Ground. Delight in the storytelling of the Gunner, who will enlighten you into the tales and mysteries of bygone times at the Castle, from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to the Battle of Jersey in 1781. Then finally prepare yourself for the resounding bang of the signal gun and flintlock musket.

      Meet the Master Gunner or Cadet Gunner at Elizabeth Castle on the following days:

      Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm with some performances on Monday and Sunday.

      If the Master Gunner is going to be the highlight of your trip to Elizabeth Castle, please call +44 (0) 1534 634048 before you visit to check that performances are confirmed for that date.

       

    • Longhouse Tour and Fire Lighting
      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.04.09-2025.03.11

      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.

    • Trade Roots
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      2024.04.09-2026.08.05

      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.

Commencing at Jardin d’Olivet, we will amble through country lanes, taking in a well-head and woodlands on our way to an inconveniently placed lavoir.

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

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.10-2024.05.09

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

    • Wild Islands: through the lens
      All day
      2024.04.11-2025.06.29

      Forty talented photographers from Jersey and Guernsey have contributed to this wonderful exhibition, which is the first to take place in our new museum space at Hamptonne.

      More than 200 images, printed on banners, capture the incredibly rich biodiversity we have in the Channel Islands – from birds, insects and mammals, to wildflowers, fungi and sea life, with a focus particularly upon Jersey.

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.11-2024.05.10

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

       

      WHAT DOES IT COST TO TAKE PART?

      Adult: £10

      Child (Under 16): £5

      Team of 4: £40

    • Bouonnefemme

      2024.04.11-2024.12.10

      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.

  • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
    All day
    2024.04.12-2025.04.12

    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.

  • Walk This Way!
    All day
    2024.04.12-2024.05.11

    Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

    In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

    WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

    Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

    • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
    • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
    • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
    • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

    You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

    You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

    North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

    And some other walks to give you inspo:

    Walks from dawn to dusk

  • Trade Roots
    10:00 am-3:00 pm
    2024.04.12-2026.08.08

    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.

    The Master Gunner will ensure that your backs are straight, your chins are high, and bellies are tucked-in as you stand to attention for the Midday Parade on the expanse of the Castle’s Parade Ground. Delight in the storytelling of the Gunner, who will enlighten you into the tales and mysteries of bygone times at the Castle, from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to the Battle of Jersey in 1781. Then finally prepare yourself for the resounding bang of the signal gun and flintlock musket.

    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.

      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.

  • Les P’tits Faîtchieaux
    All day
    2024.04.14-2024.07.17

    Something strange and delightful has been happening at Hamptonne over the winter!

    Do you believe in magic? A visit to Hamptonne and La Hougue Bie may just change your mind.

    Something strange and delightful has been happening there over the winter. Les P’tits Faîtchieaux, or little folk, are back and they have been busy creating a new home. In fact, they have been so busy, we think there could be a whole village!

    We hope the fairies will stay for some time and we’d like them to settle in properly before being visited by your little people, so take the opportunity to visit them from the end of January.

  • Walk This Way!
    All day
    2024.04.14-2024.05.13

    Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

    In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

    WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

    Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

    • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
    • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
    • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
    • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

    You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

    You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

    North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

    And some other walks to give you inspo:

    Walks from dawn to dusk

    Woodland walks

    Buggy friendly walks

    Coast to Coast walks

     

    WHAT DOES IT COST TO TAKE PART?

    Adult: £10

    Child (Under 16): £5

    Team of 4: £40

  • Batterie Lothringen Open Day

    2024.04.14

    CIOS BUNKERS OPEN THIS WEEKEND!
    BATTERIE LOTHRINGEN COMMAND BUNKER and the OBSERVATION & RANGE FINDING TOWER ‘MP1’ – Noirmont Point, St. Brelade’s
    SUNDAY 14th APRIL 2-5PM
    CIOS BUNKERS OPEN THIS WEEKEND!
    ***Bonus!***
    Sample acorn coffee, Panzerplatten (armour plate!) crackers and Scho-Ka-Kola chocolate which formed a key part of German rations!
    Originally intended as ‘Marine Battery 2’ armed with 4 modern quick firing 15cm turreted guns which never arrived thanks to the success of Allied bombing raids in Europe, Coastal Artillery Batterie Lothringen at Noirmont Point was the only Kriegsmarine (Naval) battery found in Jersey and armed with ex-battleship 15cm guns.
    The ‘eyes’ of the battery is the CIOS maintained large multi-floored Command Bunker equipped with both a 6 meter range finder and Azimuth direction finding periscopes protected by armoured turrets. Originally equipped with state of the art equipment to calculate the ‘target’ location and how humidity wind etc. would affect the shell’s flight, today parts of the bunker are restored to how it looked when operational.
    There is also information on Allied attacks that took place off the headland and items found in the area of relevance to the Battery and those who manned it, and you can even look through one of the periscopes! Knowledgeable members will be on hand to help you with your visit and the CIOS has also progressively opened up a large proportion of the Battery’s sealed bunkers behind the command bunker which allows the interested visitor to explore them and have a better understanding of how the battery worked thanks to numerous interpretation panels found on multiple structures.
    Admission £6 – under 16s and CIOS members free.

      Something strange and delightful has been happening at Hamptonne over the winter!

      Do you believe in magic? A visit to Hamptonne and La Hougue Bie may just change your mind.

      Something strange and delightful has been happening there over the winter. Les P’tits Faîtchieaux, or little folk, are back and they have been busy creating a new home. In fact, they have been so busy, we think there could be a whole village!

      We hope the fairies will stay for some time and we’d like them to settle in properly before being visited by your little people, so take the opportunity to visit them from the end of January.

    • Walk This Way!
      All day
      2024.04.14-2024.05.13

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

    All day
    2024.04.15-2025.04.15

    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.

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

    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
    2024.04.15-2026.08.11

    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.

      Walk This Way! in April for Jersey Hospice Care…

      In celebration of the arrival of Spring, this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days, and get out and about with family and friends.

      WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

      Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30 days between 1 – 30 April. But everyone is different so here are some ideas for how you can take on the challenge:

      • Walk a mile every day for 30 days.
      • Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
      • Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month.
      • Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month. You could also choose a destination that you could aim to ‘walk’ to – for example, a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain! So where could you walk to?!

      You can walk whenever you like – so whether it’s as the sun is rising to start the day off right, or when it’s setting to celebrate the end of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour, or when the children are in bed – the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day!

      You can use it as a good excuse to explore all corners of the island with these self guided walking routes from Visit Jersey:

      North Coast  —  South Coast  —  East Coast  —  West Coast

      And some other walks to give you inspo:

      Walks from dawn to dusk

      Woodland walks

      Buggy friendly walks

      Coast to Coast walks

    • Searching for Jersey’s Celts
      All day
      2024.04.15-2025.04.15

      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.

    • Francois Nicolle
      10:00 am-4:00 pm
      2024.04.15-2024.11.25

      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
      2024.04.15-2026.08.11

      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
    2024.04.16-2025.10.02

    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
    2024.04.16-2024.12.15

    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
    2024.04.16-2025.03.18

    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.

    Set in a high-rise Florida condo with a backdrop of amazing sunsets – a lifechanging friendship blossoms between two lonely souls: Lily (Tessa Coleman) an aging, self proclaimed ‘tight-assed, nosy old biddy’ and Michael (Lee White) an acerbic, ballroom dance instructor and a ‘passive aggressive queen with a bad attitude’. From a rocky start to a heart-warming finish, this fun and thought-provoking comedy is full of warmth and charm, and a smattering of music and movement, as Lily and Michael dance themselves into each other’s hearts…and yours!
