‘A Summer of Fun’, kindly sponsored by Ogier, involves creative sessions across the castles and museums every weekday from 11am-3pm, starting from next Monday (25th). From pottery to performance, there will be something to engage and delight youngsters at a different heritage site each week.
Nicky Lucas, Jersey Heritage’s Events Curator, said: “If you’re short on ideas on how to keep the kids in your life occupied during the summer holidays, we’ve got lots of fun and activity planned and can’t wait to get started! Families can begin with ‘Oodles of Doodles’ at Elizabeth Castle, then take part in some wild play, drama sessions and pottery during the middle of the holidays, before heading into the ‘Junkyard Jungle’ at Hamptonne as the summer comes to an end.”
‘A Summer of Fun’ involves artists Jools Holt and Margarida Lorenco Olivier, naturalist Stephen Le Quesne, the Butterfly Theatre Company and potter Stuart Copeland. All sessions are drop-in with no booking required, although children must be accompanied by an adult who’s on hand and ready to help as the creativity begins!
Kate Kirk, Director of Marketing for Ogier, said: “Ogier is committed to supporting education projects and we’ve partnered with Jersey Heritage to offer a series of family learning events packed with activities across the year. We can’t wait for ‘A Summer of Fun’ to begin – such great opportunities for families to have a fun, creative day out at the heritage sites, while also learning about our Island’s culture and history, is something we’re proud to support.”
Usual site entry fees apply. Free to Jersey Heritage Members and children under the age of six.
