Rural – Jersey Country Life Magazine


Whether you’re making the most of the long summer evenings or looking for ways to keep the kids entertained this holiday, there is plenty happening in Jersey this August, including concerts, competitions and craft sessions! 

Here’s what’s on in Jersey this month… 

Saturday 6 August – Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s Summer Concert  

After a two-year break, the JSO are back for their summer concert in Les Quennevais School Hall. Hilary Davan Wetton will conduct this concert of well-loved pieces with soloist Gerard Le Feuvre performing Elgar’s Cello Concerto. There is also an introductory ‘Discovery Concert’ in the afternoon for younger audiences. 

Tickets: £10 for students, £28 for adults, plus booking fee.

Monday 8 August – Wildlife Art Evening at the Société Jersiaise 

Due to popular demand, the Jersey Biodiversity Centre is hosting another art evening at the Société Jersiaise for Islanders to delve into natural history. There will be a selection of butterflies from the Société Jersiaise collection for you to draw, paint and photograph. 

Tickets: Free.

Wednesday 10 August – Waste-Free-Wednesdays: Bags and Bunting

Families are invited to join the National Trust for Jersey’s Education Officer at the Wetland Centre in St Ouen for a morning of thrifty crafting. Learn how to recycle plastic bags into beautiful bunting, and old t-shirts into a reusable shopping bag – great timing following the recent law that banned plastic bags in Jersey.  

Tickets: Free for members, booking essential.

Sunday 14 August – Intertidal Walk to Karame Beacon

Walk more than 3km offshore, past Seymour Tower to the Karame Beacon, a place that is accessible only a few times each year at very low tide. This ‘bucket list’ walk is organised by guide Lou Wagstaffe and will take Islanders to a place that very few people go – except low water fishermen! 

Tickets: £25.

Wednesday 17 August – Music, Poetry and Storytelling at Le Catel Fort 

Join the National Trust for Jersey at Le Catel Fort overlooking Grève de Lecq for a traditional ‘get together’ from temps passé. Enjoy music from Sonneux and La Veil’Ye, along with poetry and storytelling. Tickets include a supper of Jersey cabbage loaf and a selection of cheeses. 

Tickets: £10 for members, £15 non-members, plus booking fee.

Sunday 21 August – Charity Fishing Competition at St Catherine’s Breakwater 

Jersey’s Annual Fishing Competition supported by Sinkers Fishing Club is back this year with all proceeds in aid of Jersey Cancer Relief. All ages welcome, with prizes for the longest fish caught! 

Tickets: £5.00.
