Funny and entertaining magic show! Both performers were great and after the show finished magicians came around the bar to perform magic up close whilst you finished you drinks. Good way to spend your evening!

7 is a perfect age we do allow younger but he will get some of the humour especially when the magicians use Dad in one of the tricks. Hope to see you at our show
