Magic Lantern Show

Showman ‘Professor’ Heard travels all over the world exhibiting his remarkable and rare collection of hand-painted and photographic magic lantern slides.

A fitting complement to Peter Blake’s cabinet of curiosities and specially designed for the Holburne, this show uses some of the most wonderful and curious material originally designed for the amusement and instruction of Victorian and Edwardian audiences. Here you will meet bearded ladies, alphabetical acrobats, temperance tirades, stories of pigs and wigs and pictures which will stretch your imagination!

Ticket £10 / suitable for all ages (7+) children’s ticket £5
