Professor Heard's Peerless Magic Lantern Show at the Holburne Museum in Bath


Professor Heard's Magic Lantern Show of Curiosities — for one night only in Bath

Big screen entertainment — but not as we know it!


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

This show has been specially designed for the Holburne and uses some of the most wonderful and curious material that was originally designed for the amusement and instruction of Victorian and Edwardian audiences.


You will meet:
  • bearded ladies 
  • alphabetical acrobats 
  • temperance tirades 
  • stories of pigs and wigs ... and pictures that will stretch your imagination!
His fast moving shows are a mixture of entertainment and fascinating facts about the magic lantern's long history featuring lots of moving slides and special effects and plenty of irreverent humour.

Tuesday 23 June 2011 at 7pm 

Ticket are £10 for adults and £5 for children. The show is suitable for 7-year-olds and over.
