Guernsey Pouques – Old Homepage

The first discussion at the festival is a COVID-19 report from the regions. The Guernsey pouques realised that the fairy folk could see the crown virus balls being breathed out by humans so they could help them identify who had the disease.

The Interceltique de Petits Gens opening ceremony. We sent the delegates a flag to hold and asked them to send us a photo. Oh dear! Someone sent the fairy folk human size flags. Never mind. We will see them when they do their sessions. Tonight we have an online ceilidh.

Interceltique de Petits Gens online festival is being held in Guernsey this year. I will be giving you a daily report of events. Each region and nation is sending a fairy folk delegate. We have a range of guest speakers and musicians. Starts Saturday.

Another strange animal wandering around town. The pouques didn't quite know what to make of it. P'tite Jeanne said hi as a p'tit tchian but P'tit Jean decided to on a more traditional approach with his little green coat and welcomed le grand tchian in a friendly doggy way.

The pouques met some strange animals at the GSPCA seafront sunday. Un grand haomme irogne et les petits pouques irogne.

Did you know that the fairy folk of the Channel Islands are just as active today as they have ever been?

Each island has its own witch and colony of fairy folk, similar to pixies who are called pouques.

They are tiny men and women, the size of toddlers, with orange hair and green clothes.

They are shape shifters and can change into rocks and animals.


They speak Guernsey French.


Only children can see them, and they are very mischievous but have a kind heart.

Sammy and Jacob Robilliard have lots of adventures with the pouques.

Don’t forget if you want to see some pouques – THEY WON’T SHOW THEMSELVES WHEN THE ADULTS ARE AROUND!
