The Court Room and Jessell Room

This evening concludes the cycle of events that comprised GHost II and opens the curtain for the entrance of GHost III.
In a parallel projection on the walls of the Courtroom we will show Julian Wakeling’s haunted photographs of hostings I and II, which took place in the same room in October and November last year and of the GHost II exhibition at St Johns Church on Bethnal Green. Fabrizio Manco, Calum F. Kerr, Miyuki Kasahara and Derek Jordan, who have all taken part in GHost II, have devised a series of performances for the evening and will invite audiences to interact with the space and its invisible entities. The Reverend Marc Vaulbert de Chantilly breaks his silence to give a sermon in the haunted room.

Wine will be served and you will have a chance to purchase a copy of our GHost publications, “Hosting I: Haunted Houses” and “Hosting II: Ghost Voices”, which contain essays from the hostingsand a selection of Julian’s photographs.

The Daughters of Moroni will preside over the evening.This is a free event but please email us at so we know how many to expect.
GHost is organised by Sarah Sparkes and Ricarda Vidal.

The GHosts
In the darkness of the séance room Julian Wakeling’s other-worldly photograghs of Hostings I & II and Ghost II are shown, for the first time, as a dual projection. The illuminated memories of one observing from beyond the glass.
Fabrizio Manco haunts the imposing corridors and chambers, walking whilst drawing his binauralexperience of auditory phantom perceptions and ghost acoustics.
Miyuki Kasahara waits for you in in the Jessell room. As a zashiki-warashi, a child specter who lives in haunted house she will invite you to hear her ‘I Ching’ predictions of happiness or disaster.
The ghosts of Bethnal Green are stirring, emanating from the Haunted Lecture Room are live recordings from Calum F. Kerr. These oratories are echos from figures each known as John, returning once more from the dead.’
Derek Jordan entertains with haunting choral renditions guaranteed to send chills down you spine.
For the benefit of our lost souls the Reverend Marc Vaulbert de Chantilly will give a rousing sermon from the very heart of the blue lady’s domain.
