Find out more about the exibition

The Jersey Museum reopened its doors in June after restrictions were relaxed.  The exhibition People Make Jersey is curated by Lucy Layton and explores the many different waves of immigration to Jersey, from the first settlers driven by climate change 7,000 years ago to the present day. The opening lines from my poem ‘Gers Ey’ (the old Norse words for ‘Jersey’) feature on one of the exhibition walls.  You can read the full poem on my Poems page.
