Have you ever seen someone levitate right in front of your eyes? Would you like to be hypnotised or have your thoughts read? Are you looking for a family friendly show that will appeal to all ages, or maybe an astonishing demonstrating of pure sleight of hand? How about learning a trick or two yourself?

Highlights of this year’s festival include The Conjurer at the Card Table, where comedian, magician and showman Josh Staley delights audience with a show that’s equal parts hilarious and mystifying. Following a complete sell-out season in 2021, this isn’t one to miss. Catch the award-winning magic and circus show The Quizzical Mr Jeff, as well as Irish dance and illusion show, Celtic Illusion.

Gifting the Australian public the opportunity to give Melbournians the opportunity to see world-class magic acts in a theatrical environment, The Melbourne Magic Festival was created in 2008 by The Australian Institute of Magic.
