"A Victorian Christmas Magic Lantern Extravaganza"

On Friday Dec. 14th, Peppers Ghost presented:
'A VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS MAGIC LANTERN EXTRAVAGANZA'

This was truly an evening of entertainment that took us back!

Live music and narration accompanied the slides, bringing the images to life and making the evening intimate and enchanting for all ages.

The show featured historic slides of Brighton, railways and lifeboats as well as numerous narrated vignettes, projected optical patterns (which were activated by turning a crank!) and 2-frame animated slides. Many of the historic slides were hand-tinted and others (like the Punch and Judy sequence) were illustrated in bright colours. Fantastic fun for the whole family, hopefully to be repeated soon!
