The MagicFest Christmas show is back at the Traverse theatre from 27th to 30th December!

This year we present a Christmas collaboration between Scottish magician-scientist hybrid Kevin Quantum and Swedish high-tech wizard Charlie Caper.

In ‘The Miracle of Christmas Future’ – magic, robots and humans come together to create a glimpse of the not so distant future, fusing age-old sleight-of-hand with the state-of-the-art tech and phenomenal illusions with futuristic science. Expect levitations, predictions, misdirection, tom-foolery, jiggery-pokery and robots.

This show is for magic fans, Christmas fans, future fans, sci-fi fans… for humans who want a special festive experience that will blow their minds and leave them smiling as they float out of the door.

Plus FREE exhibition of photographic illusions, "Now You See It, Now You Don't" runs 13th December to 26 January at the Scottish Storytelling Centre and Museum of Childhood on the Royal Mile.

Prepare to be mesmerised by the uncanny illusionists from Edinburgh Young Carers. In collaboration with MagicFest and Professor Richard Wiseman they will be creating Magic in a Photo! How? You might ask, well join us on a journey of discovery where the old history of Edinburgh and the magic of young minds collide! Witness the magic at Storytelling Centre, unlock the secrets at Museum of Childhood.
