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.
