An Evening of Magic - London - open-air venue

8th August

Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Ben Hart to host An Evening of Magic at The Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, London. From the organisers: Acting as your magical host, renowned magician Ben Hart will display some of his most exciting, baffling, and socially-distanced miracles, accompanied by special guest magicians (including legendary magician Fay Presto) in the informal surroundings of the New Normal Festival. A rare chance to catch world class magic stripped back to its purest conditions, outdoors and right under your noses (well, 2 metres under your noses).

 

Audiences can expect Hart’s signature storytelling magic and pieces taken from his suspended sell-out tour. Watch him conjure with the elements as he works his wonders with such unusual items as eggs, water, rice, a pane of glass and even snow. Expect to see his famous routines as featured on Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent: The Champions. There will even be a socially-distanced interactive trick that happens entirely in the hands of each and every audience member.

"After five months without shows, I am so excited to be able to work for a live audience again. A magic trick without an audience is lifeless. I hope the evening will be a reminder that nothing beats the thrill of live entertainment and of a shared experience. Lockdown has been fantastic for my creativity and I've been developing some exciting routines. I'm grateful to The New Normal Festival for being so quick to give performers like myself a platform to make our returns to the stage. The evening is a chance to laugh together in a safe environment as we all emerge from our cocoons.
I’d better start practising - it’s been a while! Time to dust off my costume and fill my pockets with wonders!" Ben Hart

 

The shows will take place outside in the walled courtyard of the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, Wandsworth, London on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th August 2020 at 8pm. Tickets £20.00. More info: www.newnormalfest.co.uk.

Richard Jones: Escape 2021 - UK Tour

March Dates

From the promoters: "Richard Jones was the winner of Britain's Got Talent and is a British Army soldier as well as one of the world’s greatest magicians in The Magic Circle. Having recently had audiences on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions completely captivated, Richard is extending his sell-out tour of the UK with new dates in 2021. The mesmerising Lance Corporal will confirm exactly what made him the stand out act to win Britain’s top talent show in 2016... And still the only magician to have won the show. After gasps of emotion shown on the ITV programme, much of the audience were reduced to tears when Richard paid tribute to his veteran mentor, Fergus Anckorn – a fellow magician who died last year before his 100th birthday. On his extended tour of Escape, Richard endeavours to break the boundaries of the mind with his ‘magic with meaning’, debuting a further twist on some of his newest, awe-inspiring magic. In heart-warming memory of Fergus, he will be recreating some of his dear friend’s most incredible tricks too - some of which the legendary soldier only ever taught Richard himself."
