MagicFest Christmas Special

Like the Edinburgh International Magic Festival? Then you are going to love the MagicFest Christmas Special, which is due to leave audiences spellbound this festive season. Edinburgh, which is already known for its connections to Harry Potter, host of the UK’s biggest magic festival, and its enchanting beauty, is set to become the world’s most magical city this Christmas.

Christmas Magic Fest Internal

Audiences of all ages are invited to enter MagicFest’s wintery world of wonder and unwrap ‘The Secret Gift’ with performances from five magicians including grand illusionist Chris de Rosa, whimsical mind-reader Professor Kelso, magician-scientist hybrid Kevin Quantum, and Spanish performers David Blanco – a master of misdirection – and the legendary ‘Bubble Poet’ Señor Pérez, who will bring the show to a spectacular finish with a flurry of bubbles. 

Following the popularity of last year’s show, MagicFest Christmas moves to the city-centre Traverse Theatre, welcoming people to share in the joy of magic and uplifting feeling of enchantment. And just like Christmas Day, the two-hour show is packed with suspense, excitement, surprise and guessing that will leave a smile (and look of confusion) on everyone’s face.
