Do you believe in Magic?
From 7th – 11th July, Edinburgh is playing host to the first ever Edinburgh International Magic Festival, culminating in a Magic and Variety Gala Show on the 11th July at the Royal Lyceum Theatre.
Featuring some of the best of The Inaugural Magic Festival 2010, world renowned acts and a few Edinburgh Fringe Favourites:
The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, a double act that has to be seen to be believed. Stars of BBC3’s Comedy Shuffle and Upstaged, these knitted entertainers are the winners of our very own Edinburgh Festival Insider Comedy Award 2009, and have appeared on MTV’s Best Show Ever.
The Great Nardini, a man whose fantastic mix of comedy and magic has led him to be one of only two Scottish performers ever honoured at Magic’s equivalent of the Olympics, The World Magic Championships.
Keelan Leyser & Charlotte Marie, Arguably the best Quick Change Artists in the world, and certainly the fastest! This pair will stun you with their incredible dance and magic.
John Archer, described by Derren Brown as having a reputation in the magic world that is ‘…among the very best’ and is the Magic Circle’s current ‘Stage Magician of the year’. Archer successfully mixes comedy and mind reading to brilliant effect.
Plus: Alan Hudson and Edinburgh International Magic Festival performers Xavier Mortimer, Colin Mcleod and many more to be announced.
Kevin McMahon, Edinburgh International Magic Festival Creative Director said: ‘We’re very excited to bring this really original event to such a magical city. Even with the rich culture Edinburgh has, I can’t remember there ever being a variety show like this. Its going to be a great opportunity for the people of Edinburgh to get up close and personal with some of the best that magic has to offer’
Book now to avoid disappointment as this is surely going to be one of the most spectacular events you’ll see this summer.
