I’m Glad You’re Here


A bespoke passenger greeting service that ran for a week at Preston Train Station.

If you’re sick of carrying yourself through long journeys (and perhaps life in general), then I’m Glad You’re Here might just be for you.

I met over 25 passengers off trains and offered a menu of meetings that had to be booked in advance. Whether you were after a cheering crowd or your own personal bodyguard; a red carpet or a brief encounter; there was something for all tastes. A chance to have a fleeting, filmic moment in an unlikely place.

It was a co-production with Derelict Sites and They Eat Culture’s Hit the North project. Supported using public funding via Arts Council England and UCLan. More about my experience here. Photos by Bernie Blackburn, David Toase and Ewa Witaszek.
