magic lantern show

A traditional and delightful magic lantern performance for families with children 4 to 12 years!

Before there were movies, audiences gathered in theatres to watch something called a magic lantern. The people behind the shows - the magic lanternists - were considered the magicians of the phantasmogorical. 

Dr Ian Edwards, a third generation lanternist, will transport families back in time, bringing humourous and whimsical tales to life through the illusion of the magic lantern.
