Aileen’s favourite lectures include:

  • The pleasures of the Thames – a trip from source to sea with extra slides of people spending their time in different ways. Popular with waterways groups.
  • A lanternist on Holiday which is particularly appreciated by the older generations and includes songs and singalongs!
  • The Isle of Wight
  • History of The Manchester Ship Canal

Bespoke shows on request. Aileen’s shows also include comical and slipping slides where appropriate!

The Magic Lantern Society does not guarantee that any performance you arrange will match your requirements and recommends that you agree your needs in detail with any potential lanternist. Any resulting contract or arrangement to provide a show will be between the organiser and the lanternist only and will not involve the Magic Lantern Society in any way.
