Please go and support the magicians - a great night out!
Oct 2020
A fabulous night out at the Close Up magic show. A birthday treat for our 14 year old son who loves magic and he thoroughly enjoyed it. All 4 magicians were great and each unique. The tour around the museum was so interesting too. And there is a bar!

Fantastic night! Highly recommended!

A brilliant night!

I had a great time. Very enjoyable, entertaining and relaxing.

I was greeted by a charming host who gave me all the information that I needed for my evening, took my temperature and told me how they were going to keep us all safe! I was very impressed by his introduction.

I was shown to a seat by a lovely young man, and another host took a drink order which was bought to me at my table. I didn’t need to move at all and was well taken care of.

The performers interacted really well with all of the audience members and the magic was funny, interesting, and spectacular!

Such a great night, well planned and thought out, and highly recommended!

Thank you!

It's Magic!
Mar 2020
We went to "The Magic Circle Mysteries" show; do get there early to look around the museum which is itself really interesting, with members available and offering information on the exhibits many of which are historically fascinating as well as being genuinely interesting. Before the show and during the 25 ish min interval there is also some close up magic to experience (all were excellent). The show comprised 4 different magicians as well as a compare also a magician. All were quite different, all were excellent .

The auditorium is small so visibility looked to be good from all seats. If you're sitting in the front row or in an aisle seat, expect to be called on to participate, in the nicest possible way....says she who sat as far away from an aisle as possible :-)

Well worth going & we are looking forward to going back.

Absolutely great night out!
Mar 2020 • Friends
It was such an amazing night all the way through. I wish I could convince everyone to experience this as it was so much more than I expected. Smiled all the way through. Everyone did I think.

Amazing!!!
Feb 2020
Booked for my Dad's birthday treat. Absolutely amazing close up magic! Just don't know how they did it!! Mixed group from 12 to 75 and we were all enthralled! Can't wait to go back! Lucky enough to secure front row but the whole thing is so close and intimate I don't think it really matters. Lots of audience participation which is lovely. Building pretty cool too, total mix of visitors, can't recommend highly enough!

An enjoyable evening of Magic and Mystery
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had booked for one of the evening events, for which the doors open at 7pm and there is much to see before the main show at 8pm. Seats were not allocated except for those in the front row, so it was worth being prompt when it was announced, around 7.50pm, that the theatre was open to obtain a seat near the front, ideally on an aisle where you might be picked on to assist one of the magicians.

In addition to the show itself, with compere and four different magicians/conjurers, there is the museum of magicians and magic in the basement, to which an introduction was provided, and a variety of different performances up the spiral staircase in the bar and upper level, along with more memorabilia to see.

An enjoyable and entertaining evening for anyone interested in magic and conjuring.

Well organised, friendly, close up magic
Jan 2020 • Couples
TIP: arrive about 6.50, says door open at 7, we were early and already some people reserving seats. There 2 rows & obviously for close up magic front is best, although 2nd row also provided excellent view.
There are 2 tables downstairs & 2 upstairs. 4 magicians rotate round the tables.
Interval, reasonably priced drinks, but also amazing constant card tricks by Chris downstairs. I was amazed when I held an old dollar in my fist whilst Chris grasped an old penny, he bumped or fists & my coin had gone!!
4 accomplished magicians with different specialties organised excellently.
Would recommend, museum is not staggering but an interesting wander whist waiting for the show or in the interval.
Would recommend it, Chris organises it seamlessly.
