A magical and enjoyable explanation as to why the delights of reading a novel are so much better than watching a mainstream movie adaptation of the same story, and why reading is so much fun anyway. The show is not as information-heavy as some of our previous educational shows, but we do have three sets of information we like to weave into the show which are:

a)    Reasons why books are better than movies. There are many, of course, and we elaborate on six of the best ones. There’s nothing wrong with watching a movie … films are fun … but reading a book is usually a much more enriching experience.

b)    How a book is structured to keep you interested in a story, to keep you wanting to read more. We explain about beginnings, middles and ends, and about how conflict and resolution will keep you hooked. This not only explains how famous authors have put their own tales together, but shows how the children can write a good story themselves.

c)    Why reading books is not just fun, but important too.

Our "Is It Science or Magic?" show is ideal for science weeks and very different from the usual kind of science show out there. Here we perform a series of magic routines and we ask your pupils if they think what we are performing is real magic or is it all tricks and science? After each of our magic routines we ask the children how they think they are done, and then we show them if they are right or not by revealing the secret to each one.

This is an exceptionally fun exercise in basic methodical, logical and scientific thinking, and we have different versions of this show for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.
We demonstrate routines that have secrets dependant upon carbon dioxide, sodium polyacrylate (the absorbent polymer found in nappies), topology (we love Mobius bands!), optical illusions, food colourings, and many other methods besides.

To finish off with we perform our most convincing and magical routines leaving the pupils wondering whether these themselves were indeed real magic or could they just possibly be clever tricks as well.

Now booking.
The marvellous magic routines we perform in the show are all designed around classic children’s novels such as James and the Giant Peach, Five Children and It, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, the Harry Potter series, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Borrowers, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz series and more modern tales such as David Walliams’s Demon Dentist. This show is entertaining, informative, and explains about conflict and resolution in children’s literature and about the structure of a good story. The magician plays characters from the books with super-quick costume changes throughout.

We also give you a copy of our script and the information within it so you can go over the show and its messages afterwards in class if you wish to.

The show is an hour in length and was written originally for Key Stage 2 children, though we can also perform a version for Key Stage 1 as well. We can sometimes also add in magic routines based around books from your own current school reading list, and we have already incorporated the book Leon and The Place Between into several of our shows on request.

Finally, we also do a show "
The Magic of Reading" which is a lighter version of this show keeping all the exciting magic, fun fictional characters and costume changes but at the same time keeping it "fact light" which means we can do even more magic and have even more fun than usual in the time.

Now booking for Spring 2019 onwards.
