This event showcases some of the best close-up magicians available and audiences get to meet the performers and experience the magic in the intimate setting of the headquarters of the world-famous The Magic Circle.
The format is of four tables (two in the Devant Room and two in the Clubroom) with a limited audience at each. Four magicians of contrasting styles perform a 20-minute set for each group in turn, typically with cards, coins and borrowed objects. Volunteers are often used who will be as close to the magic as possible. There is a 30-minute interval. Although all shows are of a universal nature and young enthusiasts are welcomed, 80 minutes of close-up is not usually recommended for those under 12.
