Magic lantern shows at the Science and Media Museum in Bradford


Story slide

The Science and Media Museum in Bradford is having a ‘Lates: Magic and Mystery’ evening on the 15th November. It’s an ‘adults only’ event with free admission. The evening includes, amongst other things, owl encounters, magic lantern shows and free beer! The magic lantern bit is me presenting a half hour, authentic, Victorian slide show with glass slides that are up to 170 years old three times during the evening. I guarantee plenty of laughs, life changing drama (maybe) and a few surprises!

If you’re within travelling distance of Bradford, come and join us.
