Inspired by the exhibition Sideshow Alley, accompanied by the duo Andromeda is Coming (Charles Martin and Alexander Hunter) performing on percussion and live electronics, and with special guests from the National Portrait Gallery, Martyn Jolly will project original hand painted and hand tinted glass slides through a vintage magic lantern.
