Ghost Week – The Residents
Mon Oct 25 @ 10.30 am – Sun Oct 31 @ 4.00 pm
An installation of Ghosts in the basement of The Mansion House!
Built in 1732 as a home for the Lord Mayor of York, the Mansion House has been at the centre of York society and civic life for almost three centuries. A masterpiece of beautifully proportioned architecture and richly decorated, the house is a fine example of Georgian elegance, with open halls, vast rooms, and hidden chambers, telling the stories of scandal, decadence and of the many ordinary lives of those who came before.
Our installation ‘The Residents’ occupies the vaulted basement kitchen of the building. One thousand limited edition Ghosts have been commissioned for the installation and they hint at the number of occupiers who have inhabited this grand house since it was completed in 1732.
