We’ve all seen the vintage photos of people in the past frolicking and having fun at the seaside – don’t they all seem so innocent and joyous? Well we’ve decided that we want some of that and everyone is invited! So if you’re up for a bit of good old-fashioned merriment, with a modern twist here and there, then make sure that you head down to Seaside Shenanigans at The Lido, Havres des Pas Beach, on Saturday 18th June.
Seaside Shenanigans’ daytime events are open to all and free of charge.  They include a morning yoga session with Sheri Burt, Element Arts creative beach workshops for children, an interactive beach project with Ian Rolls and some of Jersey’s top photographers to capture the work in progress, old-fashioned games on the beach, which will be fun for all the family, and throughout the day there will be live illustration workshops by Artists including up-and-coming illustrators Will Bertram and Sam Bullock, Holly Smith Commercial Photography‘s Disposable Camera Project, live music and lots of other free activities for people to enjoy.  

The evening will take more of a mellow vibe, a ticketed BBQ and drinks event for over-18s being laid on from 6 pm and accompanying acoustic music from local bands.

 London based musician Eddy Bailhache (TEDDY) will perform an original live soundtrack to Reub’s Little Girl (1913) which is one of the oldest films ever made in Jersey, directed by H.O Martinek and starring himself and his wife Ivy. The story tells the tale of a whiskey smuggler Reub and his daughter. The film was selected and kindly lent by Gareth Syvret, Photographic Archivist for Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme at Société Jersiaise, who will be introducing the film.

The evening will end with a “silent” screening of eccentric comedy-drama The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) directed by Wes Anderson, using Gallery Magazines silent disco headphones. The screening is curated by Stefan Rousseau of local indie film night Jersey Cine-Club – Cinestef.

The evening is being co-hosted by Gallery Magazine and tickets cost £20 plus booking fee (this includes one drink). With only 100 places available, it will be important to book now to avoid missing out. Over 18s only. Book tickets to the evening BBQ and film event via Jersey Arts Trust’s eventbrite page.
