The Boat Shop

23 March to 30 October - Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - 10am to 4pm

The team in boat shop look after and maintain our fleet of wooden, historic boats throughout the year.   Using a combination of traditional and modern tools they are more than happy to talk to visitors about the boats and the work they are doing.  As well as looking after the boats, they also crew them and take them to various events in the Island and in nearby French ports.

Sally the Smuggler

2 May to 26 September - Every Monday - 10am to 4pm

She’s definitely on the fiddle, but how and why?
She will try to distract you with tales of piracy, privateering, shipbuilding and the perils of cod and oyster fishing, but Sally has a loose tongue.

She might let slip where she stashes her stuff and why she has such an enormous skirt…as long as you keep it under your hat, jacket, petticoat…

Please note there will be no performance on 31 May, 3 July, 12 August and 23 August.
