Morgan & West in association with Makin Projects presents
Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show For Kids (and Childish Grown-ups!)

Saturday 15th July 2017

Fresh from their appearance on ITV 1’s The Next Great Magician, and sell-out seasons in 2015 and 2016 at the Edinburgh Fringe and on the London Southbank the time-travelling magicians Morgan & West are off on a tour of the country with their critically acclaimed magic show for kids (and childish grown-ups!)

Witness a mountain of mysterious magic, a hatful of hyper-reality, and of course a truck full of tricks and tea Mixing brain-busting illusion and good old fashioned tomfoolery, Morgan & West present a show for all the family, where magic and silliness abound!

Despite their squabbles about the idea of creating a show for children (one of these distinguished gentlemen can think of little worse than performing to anyone under 21!) our favourite old-time magic duo set out to provide entertainment that really is thrilling for anyone of almost any age (5+), from any time period (anyone else born in 1865 would be especially welcome!), and any level of maturity (or should we say, immaturity?). The result is a wondrous show that is loved by adults and children alike, as Morgan & West unload another boxful of bafflement and impossibility.

Morgan & West have been performing their unique magic shows across the UK and around the world, including sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Perth Fringe world, Adelaide Fringe where they were nominated for ‘Best Family Show’, and Buxton Fringe where they were awarded ‘Best Comedy Show’. They have also appeared on The Next Great Magician (ITV), Penn & Teller: Fool Us  (ITV), and The Slammer (CBBC).
