Welcome to Ellesmere Port Boogie Woogie!*

Ellesmere Port Boogie Woogie is a contemporary art experiment investigating the hidden lives of cars and car parks.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 24-26 July 2014, artist Carol Mancke will be exploring the performative possibilities of Ellesmere Port car parks – filming from above using a camera suspended from balloons – and collecting individual stories about cars in Ellesmere Port. Please say hello if you see her!

And, if this piques your curiosity, perhaps you would be willing to participate in the experiment by allowing Carol to interview you in your car? If so, please join her at the Rivacre Valley Nature Reserve Car Park on Saturday 14:00-17:00 and/or email her at
