Magic lantern CANCELLED.png

Date and time

Due to unexpected circumstances, unfortunately this event will have to be postponed.


Ever wondered what it was like to go to the cinema in the 19th century? This lively and authentic show by Trevor Beattie uses an original magic lantern to recreate the Victorians’ answer to Youtube.

In the atmospheric surroundings of St John's Church, this charming family show combines beautiful projected images, live narration and music. See the famous man swallowing rats, marvel at the psychedelic chromatropes and join in with Old `Mother Hubbard!


Refreshments will be available from our bar in exchange for a donation.


The show lasts about one and a half hours, including a 20 minute interval.

We suggest a minimum donation of £5 per ticket, children under 12 free.
