Experience the wonders of magical mysteries and classic sleight-of-hand with master close-up magician and member of London's Magic Circle, Dr. Taliesin, in the interactive, freestyle close-up magic show Classic Conjuring. Dubbed 'absolutely brill' at its premiere at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Classic Conjuring is uniquely tailored to each audience, with sophisticated, timeless, and spell-binding magic suitable for all ages sure to leave you baffled, amused and amazed.


Set in the elegant Art Deco surrounds of the Castlereagh Boutique Hotel in the heart of Sydney's CBD, Dr Taliesin's Classic Conjuring owes its inspiration to the great close-up magicians from the Golden Age of Magic and beyond, and is in fact, just a 'stone's throw' away from the original Castlereagh St location where world famous magician Max Malini premiered in Australia a little over one century ago. In addition to convenient on-site pre-show dining options and nearby restaurants, the venue is only a short walk from several attractions including Sydney's beautiful 19th century Queen Victoria Building and Hyde Park.


Doors open 6.50pm for a 7pm start

Dress: Smart

Can I book on the day?

Seating is limited, so we recommend booking in advance to secure your seat. For bookings on the day of a performance, please call our booking line (see above, same-day bookings close 6.45pm AEST)


Is the show suitable for children?

Yes, Classic Conjuring is all about tasteful and sophisticated classic sleight-of-hand magic, and is suitable for the whole family, though we would suggest children 10yrs and older may enjoy the show more. Please note ticket-holders under 18yrs will only be admitted when accompanied by an adult ticket-holder.


How long does the show run?

The show typically runs for approximately one hour.


If I come again will it be the same show?

The freestyle and interactive format of Classic Conjuring means no two performances are identical as each is tailored to the audience.
