Castleton Lanterns at the NI War Memorial 1 – 31 May

Castleton Lanterns

The Castleton Lanterns project will be having a display of our images in the NI War Memorial from 1st May – 31st May.  This display is part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.

There will also be an illustrated talk by Museum Photographer Bryan Rutledge who will explore the role of photography during the First World War both at home and at the front. Bryan will also include a look at some of the enduring Castleton Lanterns images made by renowned Belfast Photographer Alex R Hogg. Hogg was commissioned by the Castleton Presbyterian Church committee to put together a lantern slide presentation of ‘our men at the front’ on 16th December 1918.

The talk will be at 7.30pm on 1st May and repeated again at 12.30pm on 8th May. Space is limited and admission is free of charge.  Please email info@niwarmemorial.org to reserve a place.
