    Lecture outline

    A lavishly illustrated talk on the many inventions, devices and discoveries that led to the first showing of the movies in 1895. From ‘shadow shows’, through ‘peep shows’, ‘transforming pictures’ and ‘persistence of vision’ machines, we explore the forgotten world of artists, showmen and natural philosophers who attempted to capture and reproduce real life imagery, long before the invention of cinema.

    Speaker's Profile
    Our speaker, Andrew Gill,  is a professional public speaker and consultant. He works with museums, universities, festivals, TV companies and special interest groups presenting authentic Victorian ‘magic lantern’ slide shows and giving talks on pre-cinema optical entertainments. He owns a commercial photograph library and has published many books on photographic social history.

    The Lost Dress of Elizabeth I

    The Bacton Altar Cloth at Hampton Court Palace

    The only surviving example of Elizabeth I's dresses

    Following new research and conservation, Historic Royal Palaces Curators believe that the Bacton Altar Cloth once formed part of a dress worn by Elizabeth herself.

    The high-status silver chamblet silk, professional embroidery including gold and silver thread, and distinct evidence of pattern cutting all suggest that the item was once an item of elite court dress. Tudor law meant that only the very highest levels of nobility and royalty were allowed to wear dress that contained gold and silver.

    New research supports the theory that this was intended for the highest level of customer and that it is an item of dress from Elizabeth's own wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth I's clothing.
