Rural – Jersey Country Life Magazine


Easter events are springing up across the Island this month. We’ve rounded up a couple of key festivities for children – including the chance to meet lambs at a local farm – as well as other events happening in April – film viewings, training sessions, and a tough charity challenge…

Friday 1 April – Films at the Barracks: Water

Join ArtHouse Jersey at the Grève de Lecq Barracks for a screening of four short films exploring the themes of the body, water, ecology and our relationship to the environment. The first film in the programme was shot entirely on Jersey, and takes the Jèrriais word for water, leau, as its title. 

Tickets: £8.00 plus booking fee, or Pay what you can

Tuesday 5 April – Jersey Chamber Sustainability Breakfast

Find out how to ‘navigate the green maze’ with this talk from the Chamber of Commerce on demystifying sustainability for local businesses. The talk will run through the main concepts and terminology, and simplify the steps business owners can take to be more sustainable. The Director of Ports of Jersey will be sharing their insights too. 

Tickets: £15.00

Wednesday 20 April – Shark-egg hunt 

An Easter Egg hunt with a difference – this event organised by the National Trust for Jersey gives children the chance to learn about local ray and shark species, and help gather scientific information for the Shark Trust’s national database. Real easter eggs will also be up for grabs! 

Tickets: £3.00 for members plus booking fee

Thursday 21 April – Easter at the Sheep Shed
