PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid, this year the main magic show will take place under our large safari tent on our outside deck. Seating is limited and socially distanced in family/friend groups of 4 seated on the grass (picnic style). COVID-19 precautions will be in place. Right of admission reserved.


The College of Magic, the only organisation of its kind in the world, has been teaching the theatrical performing art of magic and its allied arts as well as vital life-skills to children and adults since 1980. This holiday event is perfect for families wishing to share a fun family experience, and is one of the College’s key fundraising events of the year.

::Frequently Asked Questions::

What if I only want 2 or 3 tickets

Due to current restrictions ticketing for this event is only available in groups of 4. If you have a smaller group, invite a friend or family member to make up the required number. They'll love the show too.
