Welcome from our Director
Welcome to our autumn 2019 season which is once again full-to-the-brim with exciting, challenging and adventurous participatory experiences.
Highlights this season include: the return of: Doric String Quartet (25 Sept) as part of the Amici Artium series; Jersey Festival of Words (28 + 29 Sept); and the 15th Human Rights Festival. There are also four Richard Jordan Productions: Heroin(e) for Breakfast (26 Sept), Working Method (1 + 2 Oct), and a Literary Double Bill from Bob Kingdom about Truman Capote and Dylan Thomas (12 + 13 Nov., respectively).
We certainly recommend you become a Member of Jersey Arts Centre Association, as you will enjoy a 15% discount on all promoted performances which are marked with a Red Ribbon symbol and, as a Member, you will also enjoy a 5% discount on eat-in cafejac food, teas and coffees. We also offer a loyalty scheme whereby if you buy 10 tickets we’ll give you the 11th free on Red Ribbon performances!
And don’t forget to book your tickets early for this year’s A CHRISTMAS CAROL (6-22 Dec) as we don’t want you to be disappointed when we sell out!
Enjoy the season ahead – everyone is welcome – we look forward to seeing you all this yuletide!
