Halloween at Camera Obscura: Zombies Party on Witches’ Territory

In Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, there is a wall of portraits. It is perfectly ordinary on first glance, but a second glance might reveal completely different people than you saw before…

Take Grandpa Esbat, for example; what a lovely portrait this is of him:

Or is it?!

The haunted portraits use lenticular lenses that allow you to see different parts of an interlaced image.

The haunted portraits are available in the shop with a fantastic 20% discount this Halloween. Choose from Aunt Sarah, Granny Gertrude, Cousin Claudia and many more.

There’s something spooky going on at Camera Obscura…

This Halloween, Camera Obscura & World of Illusions will be transformed into a haunted house full of ghosts, ghouls and goblins.

You may may find some spooky characters going around the building and they may even offer you a special show inside the Camera Obscura and tell chilling ghost stories to make your blood run cold. Also, during the 27th October – 4th November any child who comes along to visit and is dressed up will receive 20% off admission price.

There will also be a “Thaumatrope making workshop” in the building so kids can make their own Halloween themes thaumatrope! If you don’t know what a thaumatrope is then we have added a small video to show you how they work…

We’ll take some photos to share with you and if you do visit remember to share your own photos if you find anything (or anyone!) spooky or scary.
