The popular and enchanting Traditional Children’s Magic Festival, presented by the College of Magic in Claremont, will return to dazzle Capetonian families this winter school holiday, from Wednesday to Saturday, June 19 to 22.
Celebrating its 25th year of entertaining young magic fans and their loved ones in 2019, the Festival is a not-to-be-missed four day adventure into a world of fantasy. Join more than 100 captivating performers for a variety of activities – from magic shows and treasure hunts to hands-on, interactive workshops and a mystery tour of the College of Magic’s enthralling Victorian building.
In addition to enjoying all of the magical hijinks, Festival-goers are invited to dress up to this year’s theme “Fantasy” as their favourite fantastical characters – a fairytale prince or princess, mythical creatures, superheroes, and more.
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. The Festival, a winter event ideal for families wishing to escape the cold, is one of the College’s key fundraising events of the year.
“We’re excited to once again host this magical Capetonian winter school holiday event. Our cast, featuring our talented graduates and students, is all set to charm Festival-goers with their unbelievable feats of magic, escapology, stilt-walking, mime and clowning, juggling and more. We cannot wait to whisk you away to a world of fantasy. Book your tickets and join us,” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.
* The Festival will be held at the College of Magic, 215 Imam Haron Road in Claremont, with the 90-minute show programme running daily at 10am, 11am, 2pm and 3pm.
Festival tickets are available from R90 per person with discounts available for family bookings. Book yours at www.quicket.co.za.
