Be enchanted at magic festival

The College of Magic's Traditional Children's Magic Festival will be held until Saturday July 2.

The College of Magic will host its Traditional Children’s Magic Festival in Claremont until Saturday July 2, with more than 50 entertainers including magicians, jugglers, clowns and escapologists.

From the magical Photo Booth, for a memorable family photo session, and hands-on magical training workshops, to game stations and performances by special guest artists, this year’s festival will be a treat.

A ticket includes a walkabout through the college’s century-old building with numerous surprises waiting around the next secret door; a meet-and-greet session with their resident magical bunny; and a goodie bag for each visitor.

“Each year we see hundreds of Cape Town’s families flock to the festival, eager to be entertained and captivated by our large troupe of amazing performers. The 2016 event is bigger, better and even more magical than ever before so escape the blistering cold and join us for this heart-warming, must-attend family event,” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.

The festival will be held at the College of Magic, 215 Imam Haron Road in Claremont, with the two-hour show programme running daily, at 10.30am and again at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost R80. Book at or call 021 683 5480 for more information.
