Jersey Arts Centre’s Honorary Patron for 2023 – 2028 is acclaimed performer and playwright, Tim Crouch.

Tim Crouch performed his award-winning solo show Truth’s A Dog Must to Kennel at Jersey Arts Centre’s Festival 40 anniversary celebrations in January 2023, and will be returning in May 2023 to perform another of his lauded pieces, I, Malvolio on Tuesday 16 May.

The honour of being Jersey Arts Centre’s new Honorary Patron is all mine. From many years of international touring, there are few arts venues I know that combine a progressive and genuinely inclusive programme of live performance with such a cherished place in their community”, says Tim. “Jersey is lucky to have an arts organisation that punches so brilliantly above its weight. I’m delighted to be able to deepen my relationship with it and to offer what support I can to further its success.”
