Andrew Gill gives a presentation using an authentic magic lantern.
A one hour presentation using an authentic ‘magic lantern’ slide projector and glass slides that are up to 170 years old. I recreate a magic lantern show that would have been very familiar to our Victorian ancestors. It is informative, moving, funny and thought provoking.
Visitors are most welcome at a cost of £5.00 payable on the door.
