Children’s Magic Festival

Feast your eyes upon the impossible feats of young magicians

Watch as the holiday boredom is made to disappear, right before your eyes, with a swift flick of a wand and a magical phrase. The Cape Town College of Magic will host another Children’s Magic Festival this year, taking place at the college campus in Claremont from Wednesday, 29 June to Saturday, 2 July 2016.

This is the perfect way to keep your energetic little tykes busy and entertained for a few hours while they watch in awe as young students and talented graduates of the college perform incredible tricks and illusions. On top of all the magic mayhem, jugglers, mimes and friendly clowns will whirl onto the stage in a colourful flurry of precise movement and comedic gags.

The Cape Town College of Magic is a one-of-a-kind specialised teaching organisation that offers internationally recognised diplomas for a wide selection of disciplines – from sneaky sleight of hand to gasp-inducing grand illusions – for children and adults. Founded in 1980 by David Gore, the Hogwarts of the Mother City is housed in a Victorian-era building and is also home to southern Africa’s only magic shop as well as a Magic Information and Research Centre.

Get the kids away from the TV and computer screens for several hours of wonder and delight, but don’t be surprised if your little ones beg you to enrol them in this magical school that is definitely too cool.
