The fun, fast moving and baffling show entertains, and also visually answers many questions about magic and illusion: Where did it all begin? Can somebody float in mid-air – before your very eyes? Can Van Buren escape from Houdini’s Challenge? Plus so much more!

The show is fully self-contained with its own attractive and ornate Art Nouveau theatre, raised stage, fencing for grass or hard standing, sound system, plus changing facilities for all of the shows multiple costume changes, and its own power supply.

These outdoor performers combine variety, illusions, escapology, magic and circus skills into an outdoor show for all the family.
