THESE winter school holidays, the College of Magic, Cape Town’s only magical arts organisation, will keep families warm and entertained with its 2012 Traditional Children’s Magic Festival from June 27 to 30.
Held at the College of Magic’s 100-year-old house in Lansdowne Road, Claremont, the festival gives visitors young and old, a rare opportunity to peek behind the doors and curtains to see what happens at this “historic house” of magic.
Secrets will be revealed.
Escape into an enthralling world of magic and mayhem with more than 50 clowns, mimes, magicians, jugglers and stilt walkers.
The fun won’t stop during the four-day programme, filled with entertaining shows, treasure hunts and magic workshops.
Young festival-goers, eager to practice their newfound mystical skills at home, will receive a free magic goody bag on arrival and there will also be plenty of tasty treats on sale to beat the winter chills.
The College of Magic, a non-profit organisation and the only one of its kind in the world, has been training children and adults in the art of magic and illusion for more than 30 years.
“We look forward to welcoming a new generation of magic lovers to our mysterious premises this winter,” says director David Gore.
All proceeds of the festival will go to the College of Magic’s community training programme.
l The two-hour show programme will run at 10.30am and 2.30pm daily.
Tickets are R50 from the College of Magic.
