Live Shows SOUTH AFRICA: Cape Town’s College of Magic to host the country’s largest magic show

May 3, 2018

Attention South African families! On Saturday, June 2nd, over fifty illusionists, jugglers, mimes, clowns, and other magic-adjacent performers will fill the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town to perform in the Imagine!Family Magic Spectacular.

Organized by the College of Magic, the hour-and-a-half show sports a new environmentalist theme and asks its audience to Imagine a Magic Future. There’ll be two showings that Saturday, one at 12pm and the other at 2:30pm. If an hour-and-a-half with over 50 of the nation’s finest children’s entertainers isn’t enough for your eternally stimulus-hungry spawn, you should hang around for the 2018 Traditional Children’s Magic Festival that starts later in the month.

Running from June 27th to the June 30th, the festival offers the young and the young at heart the opportunity to tour the College of Magic Centre, (formerly the Bentley House, a double story Victorian homestead built in 1899), experience fantastical magic shows, take part in interactive workshops, thrilling games, magical photo opportunities and so on.

Tickets for the Imagine!Family Magic Spectacular are available right now, starting at just R165, with discounts for family bookings. Tickets for the Traditional Children’s Magic Festival will become available soon.
