The Winter Gardens is used to hosting the annual magic convention and international gala show but The Illusionists: Witness The Impossible features seven of the finest magicians on the planet on one stage.

From Dan Sperry’s shock illusions to comedy magician Jeff Hobson to escapologist Andrew Basso – who performs the Houdini-inspired underwater escape live on stage – it is a show aimed at all the family.

It has already toured the world and been seen by 73,000 people across just 17 days in Sydney and Mexico City alone.
