The Illuminos Projection

On the 9th and 10th September after dark, the facade of the Lyceum Theatre will come alive through a specially commissioned video projection artwork celebrating 100 years of the theatre in Crewe.  Using projectors, music, and animation the entire frontage of the Lyceum will be transformed into a giant moving puppet theatre, with people, props and unique architecture of the theatre forming the stage, cast and crew.  The artwork will create a visual interpretation of the Lyceum’s 100 year history, celebrating the rich cultural heritage that the theatre has brought to the heart of Crewe. This is a free event.


Please do not miss your chance to be part of this one in a lifetime event. All Tickets are £5.00 (concs £3.50)
