Be whisked away to a world of fantasy at this year’s Traditional Children’s Magic Festival from Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 June.

The popular and enchanting festival, presented by the world-famous College of Magic in Claremont, returns to dazzle Cape Town’s families this winter school holiday.

Celebrating its 25th year of entertaining young fans and their loved ones this year, the festival is a not-to-be-missed four-day adventure into a world of fantasy. Join more than 100 captivating performers for a variety of incredible activities – from spellbinding magic shows and thrilling treasure hunts to hands-on, interactive workshops and a mystery tour of the College of Magic’s enthralling Victorian building.

In addition to enjoying all of the magical hijinks, festivalgoers are invited to dress up to this year’s theme “Fantasy” as their favourite fantastical characters – fairytale princes or princesses, mythical creatures, superheroes, and more.

The College of Magic, the only organisation of its kind in the world, has been teaching the theatrical performing art of magic and its allied arts as well as vital life-skills to children and adults since 1980. The festival, a winter event perfect for families wishing to escape the blistering cold, is one of the College’s key fundraising events of the year.

David Gore, director of the College of Magic, says: “We’re excited to once again host this magical Capetonian winter school holiday event. Our cast, featuring our talented graduates and students, is all set to charm festivalgoers with their unbelievable feats of magic, escapology, stilt walking, mime and clowning and juggling. We cannot wait to whisk you away to a world of fantasy. Book your tickets and join us.”

The festival will be held at the College of Magic, 215 Imam Haron Road in Claremont, with the 90-minute show programme running daily at 10:00, 11:00, 14:00 and 15:00.

Festival tickets are available from R90 per person with discounts available for family bookings.
