Islanders are being encouraged to take advantage of the many exciting activities due to be held at Castle Cornet before the end of this shortened summer season.
There are two more weeks of themed activities to enjoy as part of the successful Bailiwick Staycation campaign, including trails exploring different parts of the castle and museums, self-hosted craft activities and - at certain times - storytelling, living history and special guests.
Twilight Cinema will also return to the top lawn at the Castle between Saturday 22nd August and Monday 31st August and will feature a series of 10 films which will be shown outdoors on the big screen.
The castle opening times are Thursday to Sunday only, 10am-3pm, until Sunday 6th September. Following that date, the Castle will be closed other than for special events such as the Guernsey Air Display on 10th September and for Remembrance Sunday. Normal admission charges apply but entry is free to Discovery Pass holders and their children.
Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, said:
"We are delighted to have been able to welcome over 6,000 people to the Castle so far this summer through our normal opening and KPMG Castle Nights. We hope that many more people will take the opportunity to visit before the end of the school holidays. We also have an exciting programme of events during the autumn season at the Guernsey Museum at Candie."
From Monday 7th September Guernsey Museum at Candie will return to seven day a week opening. Guernsey Museum is currently hosting "A Journey into the Hidden Natural World and Jonathan Skelton's "Brush Marks Heaven & Earth" which are both running until Sunday 27th September.
