Allow yourself more time to go to this one as there are not only the performances, but there is also a magic museum. Very interesting to see the old props that the like of Houdini used. Book early to make sure that you get the date you want.

My wife and I had the most amazing evening. We were so surprised that the magic we so professional. A really enjoyable evening. We had 20 minutes with 2 magicians followed by a half hour break, then 2 more 20 minute sessions with new magicians.

We attended a close-up performance on a Thursday evening. It featured four different performers and each of them were amazing. We sat in four small groups of about 20, and the magicians would rotate with 20 minute sets. There were card tricks, coins, ropes and rings. The performers were relaxed and quite amazing. Incidentally, the bar downstairs is not only good, but quite reasonably priced.

We went to the Close-Up at the Magic Circle show to celebrate a birthday, we didn't know quite what to expect. The evening was fantastic. Very well organised and such fun! The host was very friendly and kept everyone updated throughout the evening with what would happen when.
We were both blown away by the four magicians that performed to us, despite heavily trying to suss out the tricks. We will definitely return to the Close-Up show!

Visited on one of their scheduled open days, it felt like quite a privilege to look around this private club. We had a look around the museum, unfortunately although the guests were split into two groups there were still too many people for a tiny room which made actually looking at the exhibits very difficult and we got to sit in the private theatre and watch a stage magician perform for us. We also got to watch an excellent demonstration of close up magic which was, for us, the highlight of the visit.
