Meet the Castle Gunner at Elizabeth Castle, every weekday from 11am to 3.30pm.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
11am to 3.30pm in April
10am to 4pm from May to end September
It’s the year 1781, just months after the legendary battle of Jersey. Gunner Gillman for the Royal Artillery Invalid Battalion, will captivate you with an account of the battle and tell you stories from the Castle’s dramatic past. But, be prepared to be drafted into the Midday Parade and witness the firing of the musket and cannon….it will be an experience to remember.
Saturdays 11am to 2pm
Gunner Blake will delight you with tales of his mother’s bean crock, among other delicacies, as he unravels the threads of Jersey’s history. His skilled gunnery will ensure that you learn how to lead the signal gun in a way which will pack a punch when fired!
Wednesdays 10am to 4pm
Don’t be fooled by Gunner Bell’s impeccable manners and jolly disposition….a lifetime career in His Majesty’s service has hardened Gunner Bell to the wit and humour of the cheekiest of recruits. His clear-cut demonstrations of cannon and musket fire are something to marvel at. Gunner Bell does not visit the Castle every week, to avoid disappointment please call Elizabeth Castle on +44 (0)1534 723 971
