Red Dot Hamptonne

Over the May Bank holiday Jersey enjoyed a rare mix of eclectic art, poetry readings, music, tap-dancing and sculpture in the unique heritage setting of Hamptonne's farm hamlet.

For three days over 1,500 happy people rambled about this idyllic rural setting finding hidden delights and becoming inspired by the visions of local artists.

Red Dot - Ian Rolls, Jason Butler, Nick Romeril, Theresa Robinson, Karen Le Roy Harris, Rod Bryans and 10 other artists inhabited these ancient rooms, meadows and created new spaces to engage and delight.

Each day offered new opportunities to engage with some of the best artistic talent Jersey has to offer.  Performance artists, poets, blues singers and a tap dancer were given free rein to find their own space and transform it.

A visitor stares at Nick Romeril's wall hanging of a Jersey cow.

The Jazz Beans rock the rafters...

Carl Danby's sculpture defines the space. A tap dancer claims the stairs as his stage.

A mother and baby relax in the meadow. Three classic days that won't be easily forgotten.
