If you like your magic big, bold and baffling then Lynn Corn Exchange has just the show for you. Champions of Magic is returning, direct from a hit run in London’s West End, with its fourth UK tour which is stopping off at Lynn on Monday, April 3, at 7.30pm.

In the show you will meet grand illusionists Young & Strange (ITV’s The Next Great Magician), master mind reader Alex McAleer, award-winning Queen of close-up Fay Presto, and International Stage Magician of the Year Edward Hilsum.

They will be performing incredible feats of mind-reading, stunning close-up, daring large-scale illusions and a death-defying, heart stopping finale.

Touring since 2013 and seen by nearly a quarter of a million people, with over 20 million online views between them, this is the champion of all family viewing magic shows. What’s the secret of the show’s success?

Alex said: “Each member of the cast is showcasing their particular speciality in the field of magic, be it mind reading, close-up magic, or grand illusions, so audiences are not seeing us all doing the same kind of thing; there’s a real variety to the show. I think that’s the key; it makes the show appeal to a broad range of people; young, old, families and friends on a night out to the theatre.”

Edward added: “I think the real secret is the power of theatre magic. I’ve performed illusions on television and radio, but there is nothing quite like the moment of astonishment that we all feel when we experience magic live.”

Producer Alex Jarrett said: “We’re very excited to be taking the Champions Of Magic show around the UK for our longest tour yet. Following a great run in the West End, the cast and crew are excited to get back on the road and present a great night out for the whole family.”

Tickets for Champions of Magic are £23, concs £17, family (3) at £51 and family (4) £68. Call the box office on 01553 764864 or visit www.kingslynncornexchange.co.uk
