MagicFair was a sell out Friday night and Saturday and Sunday morning. Tickets still available for Sunday night! Be amazed and lose yourself in magic & wonder at our events across the city this summer. Sleight of hand magic that challenge your senses, grand illusionists that combine technology, trickery and timing to create beautiful moments of ‘how?’.

Ten things you never thought you’d see at a Magic Festival.

From world leading, and stylistically glittering performances from Korean magicians at our grand Gala show at the Festival Theatre, to the multi-room MagicFair at Summerhall featuring over twenty performances for audiences of 20 to 120, you’ll find a show that will rock your socks off. And you won’t even have to take off your shoes.

Finally magicians and Theatre professionals have the opportunity to come to our brand new industry events on 9th July MagicFest PRO.

What we do

It’s about sleight of hand masters who work at the extreme ends of what your senses can handle, creating magic using techniques and skills that were originally used to swindle.
It is mind blowing mentalism; performers that can reach into your mind and know your deepest thoughts,
It’s about forging links between magic other areas such as science and then using magic to help understand the world around us.
It’s about respect for the past masters and bringing moments of wonder into people’s lives when it’s sorely lacking in modern day society

But mainly it’s about us, and how we work. All magic happens in YOUR head.
We want you to be so close to magic you can touch it. That’s why we make MagicFest.

Edinburgh Magic Festival CrowdMagicFest is a new addition to the programme of Edinburgh Festivals  designed to bring back to the stage amazing, live, magic shows, which are rarely available for the general public these days, and let audiences rediscover the seldom experienced states of awe and wonderment.

We continue to look for and develop amazing, magical events and exhibitions.
