About Magicfest Closing Gala ‘‘Fast and Furious’’

Fasten your seatbelt, pull your visor down and enjoy a breath-taking mix of illusion, mind-reading, theatrical pickpocketing and deft sleight-of-hand from a selection of the world’s best magic and variety acts.

The best illusion and circus acts from around the world assembled to perform a visually stunning and breath-taking spectacle, many making their UK debuts, in a one-off show, never to be repeated.

Extreme precision, impeccable timing and astonishing speed – you will not believe what you’re seeing.

MAGUS UTOPIA (NETHERLANDS)

World Magic Champions present their award-winning act – a fantastical spectacle of mesmerising illusions and futuristic special effects. 21st-century adrenaline entertainment that stuns the audience with an exciting story. A nightmarish adventure told with an overwhelming blend of fast-paced illusions, cinematic music, swirling choreography, breath-taking visual art and eye-catching costumes.

KEVIN QUANTUM (UK)

The Guinness World Record Breaker, magician and scientist returns to host the Gala, welcoming an array of acts renowned for their swift pace, in order to examine the question: is the hand really faster than the eye? His findings are rapidly presented on stage – with your help. Blink and you’ll miss it.

JAMES FREEDMAN (UK)

Dubbed ‘The Man of Steal’, James Freedman is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s best pickpocket entertainers. No wonder then that his hands have been insured for £1 million. His act features real techniques used by fraudsters and street pickpockets, but don’t worry… he gives it all back!

CARD NINJA (NEW ZEALAND)

WARNING: This act contains Ninjas, not Magic. Javier Jarquin brings highenergy and laughs to CARD NINJA, the award winning act. Following his journey from mild mannered card player to silent assassin, this amazing act is for anyone who’s ever wanted to be a little bit Ninjaaaa!

MC HAMMERSMITH (UK)

MC Hammersmith is the world’s leading freestyle improvisational comedian/rapper to ever emerge from the ghetto of middle class white west London. He raps entirely improvised hip hop songs based on your suggestions.

TOM CROSBIE (UK)

What if your superpowers were setting Rubik’s cube records, lightning fast mathematics and memory skills? Join Tom on the scenic route to self-improvement, as he masters the talents nobody knew he needed.
