But would these same tricks fool you? Trained by Penn & Teller, a Guinness World Record Breaker, a rare standing ovation from Simon Cowell and 'Four Yesses' from Britain’s Got Talent judges, Kevin is a unique performer in demand all over the world.

General venue access

  • Accessible entry: Audiences will be checked in at street level before making their way down a flight of stairs to our courtyard waiting area. From here, there is level access to the Drill Hall space. Exit is via another flight of stairs leading from the building to the pavement. Regrettably our stairlift has broken at the last minute and will not be fixed in August. Access to our Drill Hall is via a flight of stairs down to our courtyard and exit is via a further flight of stairs back up to pavement level. For customers with access requirements, the only access to the Drill Hall in 2021 will be via an assisted mobility chair. This will involve a team of soldiers assisting customers down to the basement level of our venue. For wheelchair users, this will require moving or being assisted from a wheelchair to the mobility chair in order to reach the basement level. Use of the mobility chair will involve some close contact with our front of house team, who will be masked at all times. We apologise for any inconvenience cause and are happy to discuss requirements via [email protected]

This is a very good show, a polished and personable professional. Magic, storytelling and light audience participation. Venue not right in centre but a well organised team and the show is definitely worth seeing. It leaves you wondering “how”?

The magician is very sweet and enthusiastic. I like the way he created a show based on how he imaged historical figures interacted with magicians. I suspected that he was a little rusty after the pandemic but we all are, both as audiences and as performers.

Some really amazing magic tricks that astounded us all. Quite a lot of chat between tricks so maybe not a show for children who are fidgety (or those who dislike loud noises). But otherwise very good indeed. There is one part where lots of instructions are given out in quick succession for some magic tricks done by the audience. I was trying to help 3 children on my own which wasn’t wonderfully successful!!! But otherwise really good fun.

You might be asking what magic has to do with performing in The Army at The Fringe venue. If you go and watch Quantum’s show all will be revealed as he shares a WWII magic trick which fooled an army and helped us on the road to victory.

Can the laws of mathematics be balanced against the unpredictability of a live audience? A levitation trick starts, a notion forms in the mind, but is just as swiftly discarded as the floating object behaves independent of human interaction.

If the show bears any point beyond sheer entertainment, it’s that in an era of fake news even the smartest can be fooled.
