A SPECIAL “GHOST BUS” EVENT AT THE GALLERY (WED. JUNE 5) IN BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM, UK

TheGhostBus2019_n

Guest Writer: MARYSIA ZIPSER, Founder of ACT Group

Roberto Alborghetti, the official biographer to Pope Francis, visual artist, best selling author and award-winning environmental journalist, is returning to Beeston, Nottingham next month.

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.

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ. 

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8  —  (£15 on the door)

“… Since the moment we started to put online some pictures, flyers, cards series and video trailers, a lot of people across the world have been expressing, thinking and commenting on the Ghost Bus project.  This is the power of visual arts and musical arts.  This is the wonder of a family history, the Bartons.  This is the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.” (Roberto Alborghetti)
