Top acts from around the UK and across the pond have been added to a magical event taking place in South Shields this autumn.
The 16th annual South Tyneside International Magic Festival returns from 11 to 13 October, with a packed programme of entertainment across the three days.
American magician Nate Staniforth has been revealed as one of the new additions to the line-up, where he will present his first-ever lecture and show in the UK.
Joining the gala show from Scotland is multi-award winning Adam Black, the current Magic Circle Young Magician of the Year, who has been performing since he was just 10, and filmmaker and The Real Hustle star, R. Paul Wilson, who will entertain magic fans with close up tricks, along with hosting a workshop.
Festival-goers can look out for Laura London, known for her close up and card skills which have earned her residencies at some of London’s top venues and secured performances around the world.
And sibling act Matricks will be combining elements of danger, comedy and charm at the gala show with their own unique props and special effects.
Also performing across the three-day event are Britain’s Got Talent winner Richard Jones, Mario “the Maker Magician” Marchese, Mike Pisciotta, Xulio Merino, Olmac, Magic Gisell, Steve Hewlett, Mark Shortland and Safire.
The South Tyneside International Magic Festival is organised by South Tyneside Council and magician, Steve Gore, in partnership with The Customs House and Magicbox.
