Phantasmagoria

Sadly we’ve had to cancel Phantasmagoria due to illness.

Tonight, join us for an illustrated lecture by “Professor” Mervyn Heard, author of Phantasmagoria: The Secret Life of the Magic Lantern, on the largely untold story of phantasmagoria and seance-based entertainments in London in 1801. Following the leture, enjoy the  sights, frights and optical wonders of Heard’s “Grand Gothic Magic Lantern Show” with live music by The Real Tuesday Weld.
