Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne. Please join me with my adventures locally and wherever else my travels take me!

MagicSports! at the Melbourne Magic Festival 2017


Magic Sports! is an improvised magic performance hosted by Tim Ellis and supported by a guest cast of magicians.

Crowd Participation was encouraged and was hilarious!


MagicSports! is unscripted and the concept is based on two teams completely improvising their acts and reactions to the unpredictable scenarios presented to them.

The magicians at the performance we viewed were entertaining, funny and talented and they encouraged a lot of crowd participation and interaction.

Before Show Fun!


Patrons were invited to bring unusual items to the stage to be part of the act. Items included scarves, a packet of lollies, an empty popcorn box, a shoe and a rubber cupcake, among other items.

The Team are deciding tactics for their next act!


The performers were each asked to select an item to use later on in the show. We were told tongue in cheek that we may or may not receive our items back!

The Magic Jacket Act


The performers were grouped into two teams made up of three people each and they then competed against each other for six rounds. The crowd were asked to participate by typing in the special website onto their phones and then had the opportunity to vote after each performance.

The Screen Tally derived from our Smartphone Votes


The tally was kept by a volunteer audience participant on the nearby whiteboard. The voting scores could be selected from one up to ten.
