Meet the Parishioners

Founded in 2019, the 13th Parish is a not-for profit organisation and a registered charity. Our objectives are to run an annual festival, bringing the best new international material to the island, and offer opportunities for local people to make and exhibit their own work. Whilst our scope is both local and global we are also conscious of our neighbours, the other Channel Islands, Normandy and Brittany, and Jersey’s own cultural diversity. The festival aims to celebrate and strengthen all of these connections.

Outside of the festival we engage with other cultural organisations and events in Jersey and have been happy to partner with many of them during the year. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to get involved with the 13th Parish or work with us on a joint venture.

The festival has many members, supporters, volunteers, advisors and just plain friends, without whom we could not function. The organising committee thanks them all.

Tony lectures in Media and makes music for films. He connects the festival with partner organisations and is a nuisance to absolutely everyone.

As Honorary Treasurer, Phill watches our finances like a large paisley hawk. He is also financial administrator with the Jersey Opera House and a devout music lover of questionable taste.
