Magicians are preparing to astound adults and delight children at Christmas magic shows on the day after Boxing Day.

During the day, entertainer John Kimmons will give children an afternoon of magic and ventriloquism with colourful, cheeky puppets. He will be joined by master magician Scott Penrose, president of the Magic Circle, who is promising an ‘amazing performance’ that has been seen around the world and will have adults and children ‘open-mouthed in wonder’.

In the evening, street performer Gazzo will be joined by Billy Kidd who is described as an ‘engaging performer of strong magic’ as well as the hilarious illusions and ventriloquism of John Kimmons and the classic style of Scott Penrose promising a performance full of colour, music and mystery.

Doors open at 2pm on Saturday December 27 for the children’s show. The performance starts at 2.30pm and runs to 4pm with an interval. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The adults’ show starts at 8pm and runs until 10pm with an interval. Both will be held at the function room of the Drayton Court in The Avenue, West Ealing.

Tickets for the children’s show cost £6 for children and £8 for adults. Entry to the adults’ show costs £10.
