Magic Lanterns – Luminous Yarns

For all ages. FREE. 

Magic Lanterns is a trail of eight beautiful mini-projections hidden in the dark nooks and crannies of Chester’s unique Rows. Discover the projections at night and watch as a host of enchanting  Chester stories are conjured up in the shadows. A magical musical soundtrack accompanies these nocturnal images.
