The Portland Office for Imaginary History


The Portland Office for Imaginary History is a commission for b-side Festival 2016, a satirical tourist information bureau providing entirely false visitor information, ecology, paleontology, maps, stories, walks and souvenirs from an imaginary Isle of Portland. I’ll be leading tours of the imaginary sites on a few days of the festival, but most days I’ll be in the office at Fortuneswell with all the erroneous fact sheets and misleading maps you need to keep Portland weird and enjoy your visit.

The festival runs 10-18 September 2016 and you can check out the full programme here.

See my previous commission for b-side 2014 here.
