The professional show that appeals to adults and children of all ages!
Themed as a Victorian show – ‘with a twist’, the show playfully pays tribute to Victorian entertainment but with a contemporary 21st Century pace and appeal for all the family.
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.
Combining variety, illusions, escapology, magic and circus skills.
This unique and popular Van Buren Show is regularly rebooked for all types of outdoor events, from fetes and carnivals, to agricultural and equestrian shows, vehicle, steam rallies, festivals, shopping centres, through to company fun days and outdoor corporate events.
With vast experience of performing at outdoor events the Van Buren illusion shows are performed not only as themed “Victorian Wonders Show” they are also presented outside of the Summer months as a Winter “Christmas Show”, ideal for light switch on events, firework displays and Christmas shopping winter entertainment.
The show is also performed with additional circus skills workshops presented between shows for all ages.
This outdoor show plays big, entertaining and holding large crowds, yet is physically practical enough to slot into almost anywhere – the side of an arena, in its own arena or amongst an avenue of trade stands and stalls.
With multiple appearances on television, before royalty and tours around the World, this unique show brings experience, professionalism and is a real crowd pleaser, not to be missed!
Carnivals, galas, agricultural shows, equestrian shows, steam and car rallies, funfair attractions, fete’s, festivals, town centre promotions and company days.
Performing at outdoor events not only on the mainland but also “over the water” including Dublin St Patricks Day Festival, Balmoral Show, Belfast and the Rhine Summer Show, Germany.
