The quaint market town of Beccles, Suffolk, looks like a village from a bygone era, so it’s only right that it play host to a magician with a similar taste for the trappings of yesteryear.
In April, Gerry Hatrick, “The Victorian Conjuror,” and his lovely assistant Gladys, will be returning to Beccles Public Hall to perform their show, “A Cavalcade of Wonders.”
The event promises an array of family-friend mysteries, tricks and Victorian-era “jiggery-pokery.” For maximum authenticity, be sure to work a 16-hour shift at the local textile mill and infect your children with cholera before the show.
“This new production, with its charming Victorian setting, embraces all the excitement and nostalgia of entertainment in the Victoria era,” explained a spokesman for the venue. “Come along and bring the family for an Easter holiday treat and enjoy an evening of magic, comedy and intrigue.”
A Cavalcade of Wonders starts at 7:30pm on Saturday the 14th of April. Tickets are on sale now and cost £9.00 plus a small booking fee. Children’s tickets are £5.00.
