"A Victorian Christmas Magic Lantern Extravaganza"

On Friday Dec. 14th, Peppers Ghost presented:
'A VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS MAGIC LANTERN EXTRAVAGANZA'

This was truly an evening of entertainment that took us back!

Live music and narration accompanied the slides, bringing the images to life and making the evening intimate and enchanting for all ages.

The show featured historic slides of Brighton, railways and lifeboats as well as numerous narrated vignettes, projected optical patterns (which were activated by turning a crank!) and 2-frame animated slides. Many of the historic slides were hand-tinted and others (like the Punch and Judy sequence) were illustrated in bright colours. Fantastic fun for the whole family, hopefully to be repeated soon!

TRAIN RUNNING EVENT WITH A 'CONTINENTAL' THEME!

DEC 1st - TRAIN RUNNING EVENT WITH A 'CONTINENTAL' THEME!


Numerous rare French trains made the rounds on our beautiful 0 gauge and 00 gauge layouts throughout the day.

Visitors to the Museum celebrated with chocolate cake and bubbly as the newly restored locomotive, 'La Chocolat Nord' made her first run since 1939 after being brought back to life by Chris Littledale, the Museum Director over the last 2 years.

Striped shirts and french moustaches added to the fun as well as a live 'sound show', recreating the sounds of a French railway station. It was definitely a day of fun and entertainment for visitors of all ages.
