Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show for Kids (and Childish Grown-ups!)

Fresh from their appearance on CW Network and Netflix’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and a run of packed performances in Beijing in the summer of 2018, we are delighted to welcome the time-travelling magicians Morgan & West to Ropetackle on Sunday 10th March at 2pm (£12) with their critically-acclaimed magic show for kids (and childish grown-ups!)

Witness a mountain of mysterious magic, a hatful of hyper-reality, and of course a truck full of tricks and tea. Mixing brain-busting illusion and good old-fashioned tomfoolery,

Morgan & West present a show for all the family, where magic and silliness abound! Despite their squabbles about the idea of creating a show for children (one of these distinguished gentlemen can think of little worse than performing to anyone under 21!) this favourite old-time magic duo set out to provide entertainment that really is thrilling for anyone of almost any age (5+), from any time period (anyone else born in 1865 would be especially welcome!), and any level of maturity (or should we say, immaturity?). The result is a wondrous show that is loved by adults and children alike, as Morgan & West unload another box full of bafflement and impossibility.

Morgan & West have been performing their unique magic shows across the UK and around the world, including sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Perth Fringe world, Adelaide Fringe where they were nominated for ‘Best Family Show’, and Buxton Fringe where they were awarded ‘Best Comedy Show’. They have also appeared on The Next Great Magician (ITV), Penn & Teller: Fool Us  (ITV), and The Slammer (CBBC).
