boti’s thursday pick of the day: magic

We know what it’s like in May, there’s just so much good stuff to choose from that as you flick through the brochures or scroll down your screen, you’re quickly struck with overwhelm. To the point where you never get round to booking anything at all and it’s easier to just go for a pint at the local. Anything to avoid working out which one of the ka-trillion (*this figure may not be 100% accurate) events on offer – that didn’t already sell out weeks ago – you should go and see today.

But no! There’s another way! Every day this month (and early June) we’ll be giving you one show we reckon you should get tickets for, so you can eliminate the brain ache and just get out and enjoy some great performances. We’ll be mixing it up, so our choices will include everything from music to circus, so over the course of the week you can sample a veritable smörgåsbord of culture. You’re welcome.

Here’s what we’ve got for you today:

The Conjuring Club

With a password required to gain entry to this hallowed magical world inside the wonderful Brighton Toy and Model Museum, we’re in Harry Potter territory and we love it.

Expect to tumble into a parallel universe with all kinds of creative up-close magic, illusions and wizardry from masters of their arts Rooster Magic,  Leon Simmonds and David Stewart in this immersive and interactive show. We can’t wait!
