This year’s Festival market to be appropriately themed on pirates
by Jeff Hathaway

This is the third year of this Festival which celebrates St Aubin, patron saint of those threatened by pirates. The Festival starts on Thursday 24th September with Senator Sarah Ferguson opening two exhibitions. The first at St Aubin on the Hill at 6.30pm comprises paintings and photographs by local artists. The second is at 7.30pm at the Methodist Church on the Bulwarks featuring “Temps Passé in the Village”. St. Aubin became famous for rescuing the youth of the Loire Valley from pirates so it is appropriate that on the Saturday, 26th September, the St. Aubin’s Festival has a market with a pirate theme. There will be prizes for children who come dressed as pirates. The market will have all the usual stalls plus one or two extras including music and a scavenger hunt around the village. There will also be a St Aubin Stall selling cakes, jams and other produce manned by members of the congregations of all the churches in the Village plus the politicians. Takings from this stall will be divided between the expenses of the Festival and the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institute).
On Sunday there is a service at 10.30 am in St. Aubin on the Hill Church which will be followed by a Vin d’Honneur in the Parish Hall. To round the festival off, Mr. Doug Ford, Education Officer for the Jersey Museum, will be giving a pot pourri of talks about the history of St. Aubin. A great opportunity to enjoy the village, learn about its history and have a great day out.
