The Magic Lantern is a purpose-built storytelling and shadow puppetry space. Developed with generous support from Arts Council England. The Magic Lantern was initially designed as a Covid response project to allow performers to create work which is both honest and beautiful, whether working inside the lantern or amongst its audience. The Magic Lantern will be found nestled amongst the trees on Island park running a rolling programme of build your own puppets and shadow puppetry performances. Dont miss the evening performances! The true magic happens at Dusk! Jo is the lantern puppeteer; designing, making and performing with the beautiful and intricate shadow puppets. Jo comes from a background of environmental education and nature connection. This feeds into her puppet work which has strong environmental themes.
