Tom has taken his uniquely warm charm and intellectual interest in soap bubbles to audiences around the world. The bubbles are truly exquisite and Tom’s lively humor and engaging sense of fun leave his audiences both delighted and intrigued.

Smoke and Mirrors Exhibition - London

April - September

From the organisers: Opening in April 2019, our free exhibition ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ will be the first-ever to focus on the relationship between magic and psychology. ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ will seek the truth about deception, ask how bias and suggestion affect our senses and decisions, and consider what it is about the human condition that means many of us believe in magic and the supernatural, even in the face of logical explanations. Artefacts from the world of magic will include those from Derren Brown, Tommy Cooper, Paul Daniels, Debbie McGee and Harry Houdini. Explore spirit photography, magic props, psychology experiments and more to see how magic works on – and in – your mind. 11th April - 15th September 2019. Welcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE (Map) www.wellcomecollection.org. (Just a 2 minute walk from The Magic Circle.)
