Friday 26 May
For one night, only, Crowborough’s Community Centre will become the Palace of Illusions as you are transported to a higher plain of consciousness… or alternatively just sit back and enjoy a magical night of fun and enlightenment! Venue: Crowborough Community Centre
Marvels of Magic from Page and Stage
Featuring Mr Bertie Pearce and Mr Ian Keable
Inspired by great Authors and Music Hall Magicians, Crowborough’s own master of the mysterious, Bertie Pearce takes his audience up the sleeve of illusion with wondrous tricks and curious tales pulled right out of his hat.
Interval: Pay Bar
In the second half of the evening, Ian Keable* seamlessly combines magic, mind reading and comedy to produce an endless stream of laughs and gasps.
“For tonight’s entertainment, Ian will be displaying his ‘Sherlockian’ mind reading skills with some demonstrations of the kind of stunts that Holmes’s creator might have witnessed. All put together with an appropriate dash of levity.”
*Ian is a Member of The Magic Circle with Gold Star. He has received The Magic Circle Comedy Magic Award and has also won the British Champion of Comedy Magic. He has written three books for the general public on magic and also two specialist books for the magic profession: this includes his highly-acclaimed Stand-Up: A Professional Guide to Comedy Magic.
