“An Evening of Victorian and Edwardian Entertainment”, a Magic Lantern and Phonograph Show was presented by David Bayley of the Magic Lantern Society on Friday 6 December
This delightful festive-themed evening for all the family showcased authentic Victorian and Edwardian cinematography technology and projection techniques and is in two parts:
An exhibition by Market Lavington Museum of their collection of magic lanterns and phonographs followed by a presentation in objects and slides
THE FABULOUS PHONOGRAPH: Voices of the past – on wax, a rare opportunity to hear Edison wax cylinders played in public including festive music and performances from the period
THE MAGIC LANTERN: Visit the 19th century through the lens of the Magic Lantern in colour which is both humorous and scary, and informative & thought provoking.
The event was held at Market Lavington Old School, Church Street, Market Lavington, Wiltshire
