Etched in Memory open this Easter weekend!

FINALLY the sun made a brief appearance today – is Spring finally here or is it just Mother Nature giving us more false hope? I guess time will tell… But the sun’s presence isn’t our only springtime wake-up call – Easter has quite literally sprung up on us. It’s time for eggs, chocolate and that all important long weekend!


…But what do you have planned for the next four days? A day in Herm perhaps, or maybe a blanket and beverage outside the Rockmount watching the Cobo sunset? But have you considered  a trip back in time?

“What?”, I hear you say.


Well, for the past couple of months at the greenhouse gallery, over a thousand people have been doing just that. On show are a selection of slides, photographs and even an old chair, all dating as far back as the 1800’s! This is your chance to see the island as it once was, on a scale that allows you to see the most intricate details of an “old Guernsey – long forgotten”, as visitor Jean Morrison puts it.

Today, while downstairs checking on the exhibition I met a couple admiring the huge, dated photographs. Pip Queripel summed up in just a few short words why this exhibition has been such a success:


“It’s fascinating to see how much and how little things have changed in Guernsey”


Fascinating indeed – but sadly, we can only keep the show on for so long. So this Easter, let Etched in Memory take you back in time – before this exhibition becomes just as much a memory as the photographs that fill it.


There’s only a few days left to see Etched in Memory at the greenhouse. Here’s our opening times over the Easter weekend and for the rest of the exhibition:

Good Friday 9am – 1pm

Saturday 9am – 5pm

Sunday 9am – 1pm

Easter Monday 9am – 1pm

Tuesday 2nd – 9am – 5pm

Wendesday 2nd – 9am – 5pm

Etched in Memory is on at the greenhouse gallery, which is upstairs in the Tourist Information Centre
