Presented by Liam Power Magic
Liam Power is a Magician – not a Wizard – yet somehow he found himself in Hogwarts. How does a muggle with no magic blood fit into a school for Wizards? He learns magic the old fashioned way with sleight of hand and misdirection.
A Muggle Goes To Hogwarts is a magic show with no actual magic: just mind blowing slight of hand and muggle tricks. If you want to see the closest thing to magic without an actual Wizard (which lets face it aren’t allowed to perform to muggles) then this is it.
Be taken on a wild ride with a mix of magic and comedy as Liam attempts to reproduce real wizard style magic live on stage in front of your very eyes.
The best part is you do not have to know anything about Harry Potter to enjoy the show!
