I had been looking forward to this for a while and I wasn't disappointed, the four magicians were all very good, small groups around each one and the magicians move around to each group, lots of interaction and chances to take part. I can't wait to go back.

The Magic Circle is DEFINITELY one of London's hidden gems. Had a great afternoon at Steve Allen's Christmas Cracker show. Not only was there brilliant live magic on stage, but some great close-up tricks in the bar beforehand (and in the interval). If you're coming to London, make sure a visit is part of your itinerary!

Oh my God! This place is a little treasure well hidden. We went for the Christmas show. It was fun, magic, everything I expected and more. I can't wait to go back, my son who is 10 loved it and wants to join their young magicians club.

amazing magic - only spoilt by the magicians on stage nearly always choosing the members of the same family in the front row to be their" helpers". Even chose the same woman in the family twice. There should be some communication back stage to avoid this. My grandsons were very disappointed.
