Haunting Ashton Court

A genuinely exciting piece of art: irreverent, radical, experimental and collaborative. I loved it. All artefacts of stolen and hoarded wealth must be haunted! This handbook is an excellent blueprint for all who agree.

This book is part map, part torch, part shadow. It is an invitation to join us in thinking differently about history: which stories make the cut, who is given permission to tell them, and how we might re-shape them. Inspired by a community theatre project investigating Bristol’s Ashton Court Estate, Haunting Ashton Court challenges prevailing historical narratives through writing, conversation and performance, and urges you to do the same.

This collection includes a trio of new writing commissions responding to the gaps in the Ashton Court archives, a script from a live performance by young Bristolians; and a creative toolkit to help you make your own journeys into collective history-making.

History belongs to us, and if history as it is currently told hides our stories, we must remake it.

Stocked at Storysmith, bookhaus, The Good Bookshop, The Small City Bookshop, and the Arnolfini Bookshop.
