South Tyneside International Magic Festival 2018


SOME of the world’s leading magicians are heading to South Shields this spring for the 15th South Tyneside International Magic Festival.

For four days from Thursday 15 to Sunday 18 March 2018, the Custom’s House will be celebrating all things magic as the annual event returns.

Organisers are conjuring up what is set to be the biggest event to date, featuring a family magic performance, two gala shows and a three day convention where professionals and ardent magic fans can hone their skills with question and answer sessions, demonstrations, lectures and masterclasses.

This year’s line-up includes three Spanish magicians, one from Sweden and a number of British favourites, including the welcome return of Mark James and R Paul Wilson, who both appeared at last year’s convention.

Among the other magicians taking part in the gala performances is emerging star James Phelan.

The nephew of the late Paul Daniels, James has risen to prominence over the last 12 months thanks to his unique prank-based magic shows where no-one in the audience is safe.

The 15th annual STIMF has been organised by South Tyneside Council and magician Steve Gore of West Yorkshire, who returns as booker for the second year in succession.

Tickets for all three public events are available now, priced at £8 for the Family Magic Extravaganza on 15 March and £14 (£13 concessions) for the Friday and Saturday Gala shows.
