The Big Birthday Show with Magic Gareth (Magic Gareth)

By | Published on Tuesday 17 August 2021

Party hats on the tables on entry; the big, beautiful wheeze here being that everyone has had a birthday over the last year which has, to some greater or lesser extent, been rendered shit by COVID. Magic Gareth wants to make up for that. He’s quite well placed, being a birthday party magician by trade, and translates all this into a show which is warm and funny, full of jokes (including some for the oldies), silliness, audience participation and, here and there, some properly impressive magic tricks. So, if you or yours have had a birthday in the last year or so, get along and see Magic Gareth and celebrate in merrily foolish style.
