Magic Lantern Society Autumn Meeting

Sat 21 Oct, 11:00 am - 5:30 pm

Free to MLS Members

Lost on the Thames! A Magic Lantern Adventure

Mollett and Morris will take you on a journey from the City to the Sea, but it will be no ordinary river cruise with the Magic Lantern lighting the way! Keep look out as our course winds past pirate ships, serpents and other lost wonders of the river. We’ll need all hands ready on deck if we want to make it to Gravesend alive!

Long before the invention of cinema, travelling entertainers would use devices known as Magic Lanterns to enthral audiences with projected illusions. Artists Nicole Mollett and Frog Morris use this ancient wizardry to conjure up fantastical tales of monsters, forgotten places and satirical humour.

Free to member of The Magic Lantern Society. Join up here
