Find out how RAMM’s magic lantern slide collection has been used to create a new story and experience a peepshow performance. Presentations from two experts will reveal recently discovered highlights from RAMM’s collection, and the evolution of the peepshow as an itinerant form of storytelling. Tea will be served.

Dr Richard Crangle has been researching magic lanterns and slides for over 20 years and is currently researching RAMM’s collection. Tony Lidington has been a professional performer, director and broadcaster for over 35 years.

Part of Exeter’s Unveil’d Photography Festival and the Lucerna magic lantern web resource project. For more info about Unveil’d, including the public lecture ‘Photography and Film – Ways of Seeing the World’ at the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum at 6pm the same day: www.unveild.photography.
