Lantern Slide Projections at The Hive

  • 27th March 2018


From Friday 6th to Sunday 8th April you will be able to see projections of magic lantern slides at The Hive, from 8.30pm – 10.30pm. Large projections of these images will be cast on to the city wall and Hive windows. The slides were taken by Arthur Henry Whinfield, a Worcester resident, from all around the world during the late 19th century – this year marks the centenary of his remarkable collection being donated to the Worcester Diocesan Church House Trust.

As part of the Whinfield Project, these 3 nights of projections will publicly share some of the now missing monuments, buildings and landscapes that Whinfield photographed. Projection curator, Rob Hewitt of Redhawk Logistica, will be on hand to meet visitors and hear your thoughts.
