Kick off The Melbourne Magic Festival in style at The Laneway Theatre as we introduce a dozen of Melbourne’s finest Magicians in our annual celebration of the art of Close Up Magic.

This two hour show is a Festival fund raiser so each performer will be bringing out their very best magic in an hilarious showcase of world class sleight of hand.

NO PRESALE DISCOUNTS – But there are ONLY 34 seats, two of which will be randomly chosen to be seated at the table with the magicians.
