Guernsey Museums have reported a healthy 2022 summer season, as the majority of the sites prepare to close for the winter.

Footfall across various heritage sites has almost returned to 2019 levels which, according to the Head of Heritage Services, is very encouraging.

Helen Glencross said that after the disruption that Covid brought, Guernsey Museums have seen a busy season with numerous events across their sites, including KPMG Castle Nights, Twilight Cinema and the Fete d’Etai.

Castle Cornet, Fort Grey and the German Naval Signals HQ will close for the winter today, Sunday 30 October, but the Guernsey Museum at Candie will continue to host exhibits and events throughout the remainder of the year.

The three exhibitions still to see before the end of the year includes Shore, Lines and Brush Marks by Roseanne Guille, which you can read about in detail HERE.

This exhibition is in conjunction with Deborah Grice, an award winning British landscape artist. Ms Guille and Ms Grice are long standing friends but have not previously displayed their work together.

The two other exhibitions planned for the last couple of months of this year have bee produced in partnership with the Guernsey Photography Festival.

Sian Davey will be displaying her exhibition For the Love of the Land until 20 November, while Anastasia Samoylova will be exhibiting her work Floodzone; a photographic project focusing on rising sea levels round Miami.

The annual Candie Christmas events will return in December too.
