Time travelling ghost story for Solstice Shorts Festival Video

Video

Imogen Robertson was one of our judges for the Solstice Shorts Short Story Competition. As she mainly writes historical detective novels, when we asked her to contribute a story to the festival (and book)  we were vaguely expecting something historical, but instead we got this brilliantly understated ghost/time-travel story, Grange Lodge.

I have crossed that very road – and shall look extra carefully in future…

This story is one of 16 read at the festival and featured in the book Solstice Shorts: Sixteen Stories about Time.

And to go with, Rosemary Lippard sings the rather creepy Day after Tomorrow, by Tom Waits.

Our BSL interpreters wish it to be known that this is not what they consider performance standard signing, they needed a chance to rehearse with the performers for that, but you will be able to follow the story and song.
