Remembering Coventry: Ghost Town Haunting # 1 is a week-long exhibition celebrating Coventry’s local television history, at Theatre Absolute’s Shop Front Theatre in the city centre of Coventry.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to engage with various screens (including a pair of vintage living room sets) displaying showreels of programmes made in and about Coventry, co-curated with researchers from the University of Warwick, Kaleidoscope’s Chris Perry, and the Media Archive for Central England. Much of this footage has not been seen since its original broadcast, and will be digitised and preserved for the exhibition.

A number of events will be held during the exhibition, beginning with a launch party on April 16th, and including Q&As, memory workshops, and talks about local history.

Come along and look for lost loved ones, your younger selves, your old house or place of work in our screenings. Join the conversation about the city’s past, present and future.
