Press Release: College of Magic to Welcome Budding Capetonian Wizards in 2014

January 23, 2014

Budding wizards from around the Mother City are invited to learn the art of magic at the world-renowned College of Magic, Cape Town’s only magical arts organisation, in Claremont from Saturday 1 February, 2014.


Following a successful summer magic tour at the V&A Waterfront where graduates and students of the College of Magic dazzled parents and their children alike, and thrilled visiting tourists, with breathtaking illusions, the College looks forward to welcoming aspirant Houdinis to its mystical premises and introducing them to a wondrous new way of learning.


A world of mystery awaits your burgeoning magician as the entry level course one, suitable for learners aged 10 to 13 years old, gives them a taste of rope magic, card tricks, coin effects and more. New students are also invited to enjoy any or all of the extra arts as part of their lessons. These include the fascinating skills of juggling, mime, clowning and puppetry.


The College of Magic, the only organisation of its kind in the world, has been training adults and children in the art of the magic and its allied arts since 1980.


“We can’t wait to welcome a new generation of magic enthusiasts to the College and share the expertise of our amazing staff of lecturers, which include graduates and professional performers, with them.” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic
