Champions of Magic - UK Tour

March Dates

 

From the promoter: Champions of Magic returns to the UK in 2022 for a short tour, before heading to Europe to perform in some countries you’ve only heard about through war journalism. So see them while you still can. They genuinely might not come back.

 

But let’s be honest, this isn’t ‘In & Of Itself’. You don’t get to feel clever for watching our show. And we’re not going to try and sell to MagicWeek readers using a series of adverbs and adjectives about a group of performers whom you’re either friends with on Facebook, or have at least seen drunk at the Ruskin. So what’s in it for you as a professional magician? Allow us to walk you through it...


• If you love brushed-aluminium props, black art, or the impeccable design work of Tim Clothier then do we have a show for you. We’ve got a truckload of it. Literally.

• You’ll gasp at the world’s most dangerous performance of the Jaws of Death! (The prop is the same as all the others but the tech who suspends it is entirely unqualified).
• You’ll be shocked by how much a Sven deck goes for at the merch stand.
• You’ll enjoy close-up magic performed on the big screen – join other magicians for the Elmsley count-along!
• You’ll feel like a meteorologist when you can see the Snowstorm coming about 4 minutes before it happens.
• One night the roller in the Dreamvision prop WILL fail. This could be it and you’ll want to be there when it does! Let’s find out together if we have an ‘out’ for that. (Spoiler alert: nope).
• Hang around for the Meet & Greet in the lobby after the show – the cast love unsolicited notes.


Tickets start from just £25. That’s three quid cheaper than Criss Angel’s Penguin lecture. Or use some of those sweet, sweet Zoom Show profits, and treat yourself to a front row seat at £55. That way we’ll even hear you when you tell your date ‘I know how they did that’. Here’s the tour info. Bring family, bring friends, don’t bring a deck. We promise you a fun night out:


31st March Brighton Centre
2nd April Nottingham Motorpoint Arena (on sale soon)
3rd April London Eventim Apollo
4th April Cambridge Corn Exchange
6th April Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
7th April Grimsby Auditorium (on sale soon)
9th April York Barbican
10th April Manchester Opera House
11th April Birmingham New Alexandra Theatre


Tickets for all shows at www.championsofmagic.co.uk. Please note the show is not recommended for children under 5, or performers still doing Bandanna Banana. Special magicians only offer – book tickets with 3 or more other magicians and get the bonus of going to Nando's together after the show to discuss how you would have done it better.

Champions of Magic - UK Tour

April Dates

 

From the promoter: Champions of Magic returns to the UK in 2022 for a short tour, before heading to Europe to perform in some countries you’ve only heard about through war journalism. So see them while you still can. They genuinely might not come back.

 

But let’s be honest, this isn’t ‘In & Of Itself’. You don’t get to feel clever for watching our show. And we’re not going to try and sell to MagicWeek readers using a series of adverbs and adjectives about a group of performers whom you’re either friends with on Facebook, or have at least seen drunk at the Ruskin. So what’s in it for you as a professional magician? Allow us to walk you through it...


• If you love brushed-aluminium props, black art, or the impeccable design work of Tim Clothier then do we have a show for you. We’ve got a truckload of it. Literally.

• You’ll gasp at the world’s most dangerous performance of the Jaws of Death! (The prop is the same as all the others but the tech who suspends it is entirely unqualified).
• You’ll be shocked by how much a Sven deck goes for at the merch stand.
• You’ll enjoy close-up magic performed on the big screen – join other magicians for the Elmsley count-along!
• You’ll feel like a meteorologist when you can see the Snowstorm coming about 4 minutes before it happens.
• One night the roller in the Dreamvision prop WILL fail. This could be it and you’ll want to be there when it does! Let’s find out together if we have an ‘out’ for that. (Spoiler alert: nope).
• Hang around for the Meet & Greet in the lobby after the show – the cast love unsolicited notes.


Tickets start from just £25. That’s three quid cheaper than Criss Angel’s Penguin lecture. Or use some of those sweet, sweet Zoom Show profits, and treat yourself to a front row seat at £55. That way we’ll even hear you when you tell your date ‘I know how they did that’. Here’s the tour info. Bring family, bring friends, don’t bring a deck. We promise you a fun night out:


31st March Brighton Centre
2nd April Nottingham Motorpoint Arena (on sale soon)
3rd April London Eventim Apollo
4th April Cambridge Corn Exchange
6th April Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
7th April Grimsby Auditorium (on sale soon)
