We saw the show today and I would thoroughly recommend it. My 4yo and 18m old both enjoyed- humorous (for both adults and kids), magic that kept the kids’ interested and some audience participation. Hugely entertaining and our little girl got to go up on stage at the end which she is still talking about... big thumbs up from us. Xxx

Throughout the show, Kids use their wands and say the magic words “The Greatest Magic Show”. Volunteers are required from the audience to assist with tricks, and each volunteer is given a bag with 6 magic tricks to keep, which are also available to purchase after the show. Highlights for us were: The Greatest Magician act, everyone was clapping and copying the dance moves. The underpants trick - Scott (6) said “Oh my goodness, they’ve got an even bigger wand, I can’t believe it”; and at the end of show, there’s a motivational chat to the kids about believing in yourself and keep going and never give up on your dreams…. and that this show has been their dream. Sam (9) said “I thought at the end of the show, was very emotional”, he seemed genuinely moved by the speech. After the show, you can even get your photograph taken with the cast.
