Channel Islands Heritage Festival 2015

3rd April – 11th May 2015

A fascinating five week focus on the history of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Sark takes place in early Spring 2015 in the form of the Channel Islands Heritage Festival.

Explore coastal castles, war bunkers, historic towers and celebrate a very special Liberation Day on 9th May, marking the 70th anniversary of the Channel Islands freedom from German Occupation. Visit Guernsey and Jersey Tourism have teamed up to produce an exciting programme of events with heritage attractions throwing open their doors and marking the anniversary with a series of exciting re-enactments and festivities.

The flags will be flying high for Liberation Day on 9th May with a day long carnival of remembrance and celebration. Jersey War Tunnels and Guernsey’s Castle Cornet will form focal points for a portrayal of life in the war time islands.
