WELCOME TO ALDERNEY WEEK
Welcome to Alderney Week, the Channel Islands’ biggest festival!
Spend a week in the sun and let us entertain you! Loads of live music and masses of entertainment for the kids, along with parties, carnivals and wild and wacky events for the whole family!
This year we celebrated the 72nd Alderney Week and the theme is “THE TWENTIES”.
Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were not able to go ahead with our plans until the Bailiwick introduced Phase 5 end June. Under the current COVID-19 restrictions Phase 5, only residents from the Bailiwick of Guernsey and virus-free Isle of Man as well as anybody who had completed the compulsory 14 days self-isolation on arrival in Alderney, were allowed free movement in Alderney.
As you will appreciate, the Alderney Week Team had very little time to organise a programme and, after consultation with Guernsey Health and Border Control authorities, we decided to run a mini Alderney Week which nevertheless featured over 68 events!
That Was the Week that Was!
Non-stop sunshine, plenty of action, a great atmosphere and very happy faces all round. Alderney Week 2020 was declared an outstanding success by all who attended, and many of our friends from the other Bailiwick islands and the Isle of Man enjoyed discovering Alderney in a festive atmosphere.
We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped us stage the many events as well as the Alderney Rotary Club, the RNLI, the Alderney Wildlife Trust, VisitAlderney, the Alderney Rugby Club, the Alderney Football Club and the Alderney Centre who hosted different events throughout Alderney Week and Mark Maurice for a stunning fireworks finale.
A very big thank you to the Island Band, the Fling, Gone Tech, the Accafellows, individual singers and performers and the visiting Guernsey bands.
And a very special thank you goes to all former Miss Alderneys who happily accepted the title of Miss Alderney 2020 and took part in the Cavalcade Parade.
