JT has become a partner and supporter of Jersey Together, a colourful new three-day summer festival that will celebrate the Island’s many communities through, culture, music and food.
The event will be held at the People’s Park from 6-8 July and is being spearheaded by the Polish United group, which supports Jersey’s Polish community. The festival will have free entry and aims to be a fun family day out, with a range of traditional food and music on offer from Jersey’s multi-cultural society, including the African, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Romanian communities. With the World Cup in full swing, matches on Friday and Saturday will also be shown on large outdoor screens.
Tamara O’Brien Head of Customer Experience at JT said: “JT has supported the coming together of communities through festivals and music events in the Channel Islands for many years, so partnering with Jersey Together was an easy decision to make. As the only locally owned telecoms operator, we’re proud of our role in joining people together so we’re delighted that this festival will celebrate Jersey as a modern multi-cultural Island that everyone can enjoy living in, whatever their nationality. The JT team will be at the festival giving away summer freebies and joining in the fun.”
Festival co-organiser Andrzej Kopacz said: “The Island has a rich history of cultural diversity and Jersey Together will celebrate that, as well as the many values and experiences that we have in common. JT’s support will be invaluable in making the first Jersey Together a success and I would like to thank them for their fantastic support.”
