Welcome from our Director
Welcome to our summer 2019 season which is once again full of exciting, challenging and adventurous participatory experiences.
Highlights this season include: the return of: Alexander Ullman (21 May) as part of the Amici Artium series and Oddsocks’s 30th anniversary production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Coronation Park (29 July – 7 August); two superb Richard Jordan Productions: Mireille & Mathieu’s Arm (28 + 29 May) and Happy Hour ( 24 + 25 July) which is Jersey Arts Centre’s 30th Residency since 2009; and why not treat yourself to at least a couple of events at the inaugural 13th Parish Festival of independent international film (17 – 19 May) – see the full programme on their website. Book early for all the above to avoid disappointment!
