The Amazing Magic Lantern Show

Christmas has always been a time for ghost stories and the supernatural. Enter the bizarre and fantastical worlds of the magic lantern with internationally renowned magic lantern performers Jeremy and Carolyn Brooker. A seasonal celebration of goblins, ghosts and the downright weird. Illuminated by the warm glow of vintage projectors, their images come to life, weaving tales of wonder and nostalgia.

This immersive experience promises to evoke a sense of enchantment, a delightful journey into the past through the lens of the magic lantern with accompanying music from Mr Valentine on the piano and choir.

There are two shows:

5pm: features the Lyndhurst Primary School. This show will be aimed more at childrten

7pm: features the Camberwell Community Choir and whilst still suitable for children will be more aimed at grown ups.

The shows will feature an authentic triunial (or Triple) magic lantern combining three projectors in a single device. This is the most complex and rarest form of magic lantern entertainment. It allows the performers to present fast-moving shows featuring the most spectacular effects the lantern can produce.

Jeremy and Carolyn Brooker have been performing together for over 20 years to perfect this demanding art. In their hands, the beauty and visual spectacle which has kept the magic lantern at the forefront of popular entertainment for centuries retains the power to fully engage a modern audience.

There are two performances, at 5pm and 7pm. The 5pm show will be especially designed for younger viewers but both shows will be suitable for all ages.
