The Normans invade Jersey!

The Normans invade Jersey!

This year it’s Jersey’s turn to host La Fête Nouormande, the annual Norman language festival, which circulates between us, Guernsey and the Normandy mainland. As a result, visitors will be taking part in a variety of events with a language focus.

The week kicks off on Monday 12th June at 6p.m. in Parade Gardens with a selection of traditional Norman games. Everyone is welcome to come to try out Palet Cible, Tchilles and Doque – and the rules will be explained on arrival!

On Tuesday 13th June we have our regular Tuesday “Jèrriais at the pub” session at the Adelphi in The Parade at 5.30.

There’s another pub visit on Wednesday evening 14th June at 7.30 – this time at The Post Horn. This will include a Jèrriais panel game based on several popular TV games. Come along and have fun with our language – you don’t even need to speak it to participate! You’ll have to buy your own drink though!

Un but d'la Bibl'ye - Bible snippet

Aniet ch'est la Pentecôte. Né v'chîn un but d's Actes 2:

Today is Pentecost. Here's a text from Acts, chapter 2:
Et quand vînt l'jour d'la Pentecôte, i' 'taient rassembliés ensembl'ye. Et d'un co v'là tchi d'valit du ciel un brit coumme eune divèrse soûffliéthie tchi remplyit toute la maîson où'est qu'i' 'taient. Et i' vîdrent des langues, des fliambes dé feu, tchi jutchîdrent sus un châtchun dg'ieux. Et i' fûdrent remplyis du Saint Esprit, et d'visaient des difféthentes langues, coumme l'Esprit lus baillit du pouvé.

Assa y'avait des Juis, des pieux, dé toutes les nâtions ichîn bas, tchi d'meuthaient à Jérusalem. Et quand chu brit lus vînt ès ouïes, i' lus affliotchîdrent et fûdrent divèrsément ravis car châtchun dg'ieux ouïyait les patholes des discipl'yes dans san lîngo à li. Et i' fûdrent êmèrvilyis et dîdrent, "Ches hoummes-chîn, n'sont-i' pon des Galiléens? Coumme tchi don qué j'ouïyons, nous, lus d'vis s'lon not' patouais?
