Close Up Card Magic

Live magic on the up

Like I talked about last week, magic and variety entertainment is pretty much my life, and has been for a long time now. It’s therefore really rewarding to see the genre in general being a bit more popular at the moment.

One thing I’ve noticed recently is that people are more willing to be entertained. There’ll probably always be a need for magicians to prove themselves (something which I welcome), but there’s definitely a visible shift in the direction of audiences actively wanting to give you the time of day.

From keeping a close eye on theatre too, it’s been great to see the success of a few West End shows over the Christmas period. I loved the Illusionists when I went to watch it, so it was pleasing to hear that they’d broken Shaftesbury’s box office records… Apparently taking over £3 million in a seven week period.

Derren Brown’s ‘Miracle’ is another that signals the popularity of a new type of show, with live magic being at the forefront alongside the musicals and dramas. Having already seen him perform a few times I’d definitely like to experience his most recent one. The others were fantastic.

Same goes for Dynamo, who’s currently in the middle of a massive UK tour that spans over 80 shows. The fact that he sold over 250,000 tickets within a few weeks of announcing it is testament to the idea that people are buying into the whole entertainment art form. His ‘Mission Impossible’ TV programme also seemed to fare well.

If you are hosting an event in Yorkshire, the North of England or anywhere in the UK and want to find out how close up magic can wow your guests, don’t hesitate to get in touch by clicking here.
