Indulgence with Lucy Darling

Be amazed as Melbourne becomes a magical hub this winter for 14 days only with special events, workshops, and live shows for everyone from child-friendly to adults only.

The Quizzical Mr Jeff

The Melbourne Magic Festival was created in 2008 by The Australian Institute of Magic with the two-fold aim of giving Melburnians the opportunity to see world-class performances of magic in a theatrical environment, and the chance for performers to create shows that express themselves as artists.

You can view the complete event program here. Tickets are now on sale for all events; click here to find out more details.
