Trained by Penn and Teller – Kevin fuses visual magic with modern technology and unique inventions. Guinness World Record Breaker and recently awarded ‘high commendation’ at the Adelaide Fringe.

PAUL DABEK (UK) – Magician, Comedian and Vaudevillian

A bag full of banter and a personality that reaches right to the very back of the theatre, it’s no wonder that Time Out Mag describes him as ‘A Superb Showman’!

CHRIS DE ROSA (UK) – The Grand Illusionist

Presenting the Art of Illusion. From death-defying grand illusion to graceful classical sleight-of-hand. With over 27 years of worldwide performing, on cruise-ships, casinos, and theme parks Chris has worked on the world’s leading illusion shows.

SEÑOR PÉREZ (Spain)  – The Bubble Poet

A brilliant combination of bubbles, magic and smoke where soundtrack and graceful movement will give to the audience a  wonderful experience of visual beauty.
