This special Ghost Bus event
“In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti”
Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at
The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.
£12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)
For one evening Roberto Alborghetti will be on stage sharing his fascinating stories which span secrets from the Vatican kitchens in Rome to how a decaying old vehicle in a former bus garage in Beeston inspired his film, The Ghost Bus.
An audience from across the country is gathering on Wednesday evening June 5th to hear Roberto talk about what inspires him and how art is actually lurking around each and every corner of our day to day lives if only we took the time to observe it.
Nostalgia for 1950's coach tours, the passage of time and a sense of homecoming has created this enduring legacy of the Ghost Bus project.
This was itself originally inspired by close observation by Roberto of a long-preserved historic coach in Bartons' Docking Shops, buildings which currently house an unusual and much-loved events space. These elements make this 'In Conversation with' evening a very special proposition.
The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home.
