Jersey Festival of Words – Paul Darroch

JERSEY: MYTHS AND LEGENDS

JERSEY ARTS CENTRE MRR

Come on a journey into centuries of Jersey myths, from the fearsome Black Dog of Bouley Bay to the curious tale of Geoffrey’s Leap. Learn of the drowned lands that surround us, such as the Lost Manor of La Brecquette and the legend of La Planche, our fallen bridge to France. Where did these stories arise, what purpose do they serve and what do they tell us about ourselves? 

Paul Darroch is the author of Jersey: The Hidden Histories and Jersey: Secrets of the Sea. He is a former Centenary Scholar in Modern History at St Hugh’s, Oxford. His regular Jersey history podcasts can be found at The History Islands.
