Anyone who fancies adding a little magic to their midweek should take a stroll down Half Moon Lane on Wednesday evening where Herne Hill’s Illusioneer Theatre hosts a popular night of tricks, treats and comedy for grown-ups.
Midweek Magic Mix is an adult magic show at Barrie Westwell’s Illusioneer Theatre in Herne Hill which, according to TimeOutLondon, is “Possibly the most enchanting place in south London…”
The show, which happens every 1st Wednesday of the month, features a mix of London’s most exciting up-and-coming-magicians. Some are Magic Circle members premièring new material while others are underground close-up-wizards eager to show you their most astounding inventions.
After perusing the eclectic magical emporium that is The Illusioneer Theatre you will be invited to take a seat, poor yourself a glass of your favourite beverage (it’s BYOB by the way ), sit back and enjoy magic as close and as live as it gets.
The Illusioneer seats no more than 20 people and is a space dedicated to magic performance, its history and its teaching. This intimate monthly show has been running every month for over a year now. It’s sold out in the past few months and is fast building a loyal local following.
Doors open at 7:30pm with the show beginning at 8:00pm. Tickets £12 online or £15 on the door if available. Drinking glasses are supplied but you can bring your own drinks.
The Illusioneer Theatre is at 19 Half Moon Lane, Herne Hill, SE24 9JU
