The Ghost Telegrams (Volume 2) is inspired by the Clifton family from Lytham St Annes – eccentric rogue Harry, reclusive mother Violet and Siberian adventurer John Talbot. Compiled from unseen archives, we follow the three characters from vast wealth through to financial ruin taking in Hollywood gothic, Grand Nationals, pawned Renoirs and poetic madness. This is an exclusive remix of the original Ghost Telegrams work for which the artists invited veteran actor Ron Moody (Fagan in Oliver!) to read the parts of Harry.
