The genial Steve Faulkner is hosting the show and we have a truly outstanding bill for you: John Archer, Peter Antoniou, Looch, Jared Manley, and Tim Smithies. (And I’ll be behind the scenes stage-managing for this lot; should be fun…!)

In fact it’s such a great bill that for a moment there I was tempted to use the adjective ‘awesome’. Phew.

John Archer1Exciting news! Just had a call from the indescribably lovely Steve Faulkner to say that we now have John Archer signed up for our Sunday night show at Sheffield’s Library Theatre on 2 November.

John was the first to fool Penn & Teller on ITV’s Penn & Teller – Fool Us, hosted by Jonathan Ross. Watch it happen here:

John Archer is a former Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year, and one of the best, funniest magicians around today. But don’t just take my word…

“Booking an act for my Dad’s 70th birthday, I wanted a great act and went straight to John Archer – his reputation in the magic world is among the very best. Hysterically funny, and perfectly pitched for the occasion. He made the evening. I’d recommend him unreservedly.” — Derren Brown – TV Magician and Psychological Illusionist.

“You could put John Archer anywhere and he would kill an audience.” — Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller).

“One of the  funniest men I know.” Tim Vine – Comedian.

This has got to be one of the best line-ups for a Sheffield magic show for a long time. Not to be missed! Secure your tickets now from Magick, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield, S2 5TG. Or by ringing us on 0114 276 0482 during opening hours (11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day except Thursdays and Sundays). You can pay by cash, Paypal or any major debit or credit card.

After last year’s successful debut, Sheffield’s Street Magic Festival is now bigger and better as part of Out Of This World – Sheffield’s festival of Sci-fi, Magic and Horror! Running over two days instead of one, the Festival is also adding a full magical stage show and a special ‘haunted magic’ show to the street performances.

The stage show will be at The Sheffield Library Theatre, on Surrey Street, next to the Lyceum, on Sunday 2nd of November 2014.

The show will be hosted by Sheffield’s own international award-winning entertainer, Steve Faulkner. Among Steve’s impressive list of recommendations are testimonials from Emma Thompson – “It’s great to see someone with real talent. We really loved you!” – and Ian Hislop “His best trick is combining impressive magic with funny banter. Excellent!”

Also on the bill are many of Steve’s magical friends from Sheffield, and negotiations are currently under way to sign up some exciting guest stars. Tickets will be available shortly at £10 for adults and £5 for children under 16. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

For more details and updates as available keep checking this blog or ring 0114 2760482 between 11:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
