Jersey Heritage has launched a new online hub called ‘Heritage at Home’ so that it can continue to share the Island’s history as widely as possible.
The hub brings together a range of ways that people can access heritage stories from the comfort of their homes, at a time when all six of the charitable organisation’s visitor sites and Jersey Archive have had to temporarily close to the public due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The new hub can be found at www.jerseyheritage.org/athome and will be regularly updated and added to. It is divided into the following sections:
- Virtual Talks and Tours
- Virtual Exhibitions
- Stuff to Make and Do
- Heritage Live
- Heritage Family Learning
- Jersey Heritage TV
- Family History Online
- Virtual Event
Louise Downie, Jersey Heritage’s Director of Curation & Experience, said: “We might be stuck at home in lock-down but our Island’s incredible heritage is still all around us. We are inviting people to throw open the virtual doors, get comfy and enjoy some heritage stories from the comfort of their homes.
“The hub has everything from virtual tours, crafts and learning activities, to family history resources, live webinars and even a virtual version of our spring-time event, La Fête Du R'Nouvé, which is usually held at La Hougue Bie but will be coming to a screen near you on 25 April!’
