Initiated by Salon Contemporary, FIRST WEDNESDAYS is a series of creative collaborations and late night openings throughout West End London every first Wednesday of the month. Launched in May 2010, the monthly event aims to encourage greater cultural communication and exchanges within London’s artistic community.
As part of the First Wednesdays event I will be organising, for one night only, an authentic Victorian Magic Lantern Show to take place at Westbourne Grove Church Artspace from 8pm (free entry). Conducted by experienced Lanternists Rene and Allan Marriott, the show will give visitors the opportunity to experience the optical magic of these amazing hand painted mechanical moving images from before the age of cinema.
There will be the chance to visit other galleries staying open late that night and then join the after-party at The Lonsdale.
Please add your name to the attending list on the facebook event page if you would like to come.
