Catching a bullet on a china plate. A magician without any hands. Conversations with the dead. An iconic trick that never happened. The last five hundred years are filled with astonishing moments of magic and now you have a unique opportunity to discover the truth behind the smoke and mirrors.
Dr Houstoun's Conjuring is a very special kind of show: you will see effects that created legends and hear stories so remarkable that you will question what is real. Can you trust your judgement or will these past masters continue to dazzle and deceive? There is only one way to find out… Join Dr Houstoun as he pulls back the curtain on some of the most incredible magicians of days gone by!
The performance is suitable for all sizes of audience (depending on staging) and can be customised to last anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. To discuss booking a performance of Dr Houstoun's Conjuring, or to find out more about the show, contact Will today.

Will was a highly popular choice of speaker for the London Old Tablers Society, attracting a large crowd and perfectly blending history and conjuring into an evening of laughter and astonishment. Highly recommended.
