Classic Conjuring @ Castlereagh Boutique Hotel

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 6.45pm for a 7pm start
