Christopher Josiffe, author of the definitive and official biography of Gef, will be giving an overview of this case, unique in the annals of paranormal research. He will also be examining some lesser-known aspects of the story – the parents, James and Margaret, not native to the Isle of Man, claimed to have previously enjoyed a more prosperous life in the city of Liverpool prior to their ill-fated ‘Good Life’ move to Man just after WW1. Is this true? And why were they forced to relocate?

In addition to Christopher’s presentation and readings, writer and musician Chris Hill will be reading extracts from James Irving’s unpublished letters and diaries, giving anunparalleled insight into the family’s daily life with their extraordinary house-guest.
