F for Farnham – Ghosts at the Castle

Join us at Farnham Castle for a haunting walkabout with writer and director Sophie Austin.

F for Farnham is a self-guided audio story walk which takes you on a ghostly journey around Farnham, Surrey’s most haunted town.

Sophie will launch four new ghost stories at Farnham Castle for the Farnham Literary Festival. Based on historical events and real experiences, these stories give voice to those who died long ago but can still be heard whispering within the walls of Farnham Castle.

Take a deep breath
And listen
Let the voices from the past meet you in your present.
Here in Farnham, you do not walk alone.

For this event you will need a fully charged smartphone and headphones.

Walks will go ahead whatever the weather, please dress appropriately.

A highly influential ideologue of neorealism, scriptwriter and director Cesare Zavattini suggested “pedinare,” the Italian word for stalking or shadowing, as a technique for filmmaking. Pedinare in cinema entailed “tailing someone like a detective, not determining what the character does but seeking to find out what is about to ensue.” The etymology of the word in Italian suggests “legwork” as it is derived from the Italian word for foot, “piede.” It is possible to suggest that the proliferation of images of walking in Italian Neorealism is closely linked to the technique of pedinamento, not because all neorealist filmmakers were followers of Zavattini, but because going out onto the street to encounter the everyday life of post-war Italian cities and creating cinematic tools to articulate these encounters were major concerns for the filmmakers of that era.
