May Day - GHost in Folkestone

GHost, In collaboration with Matt Rowe of Club Shepway will  be spending May bank holiday in residence at Club Shepway’s B&B Project Space for the research and development of   "GHost CLHub"
The B&B, 14 Tontine Street.  Matt Rowes work can be seen in the windows. The resident ghost Edith Mary Grimes, a 24 year old typist haunts the fourth floor.

Throughout the Triennial  we will research and document the hidden narratives of hauntings, unusual occurrences and curiosities in the Shepway area and explore the origins and mechanics of ghosts and their apparitions. A growing archive at the B&B Project Space will document our findings over the five months and will be contributed to by visiting and local artists, writers, researchers and others.
Throughout the Triennial we will be working in the public domain, contributing to the vernacular events program with a series of events such as performances, film screenings and talks.
