Mark Elsdon 10. “10″ is an entirely new kind of immersive live performance. Elsdon’s self-imposed restriction means that he performs 10 magic tricks in 10 minutes for just 10 people at a time. Oh, and he is only allowed to say 10 words per trick. These demands mean that there is no real audience, with all 10 viewers being fully involved in this exciting piece of participatory theatre, and all present contributing to the experience of shared wonder. So far, so ‘arty’, but is it entertaining? Well yes, of course! But that’s not really the point. Rather it is magic performed as a form of self-expression, one whose goals are beyond that of simple entertainment, and whose resonance is felt long after the performance is over. Part of the Edinburgh International Magic Festival. Event Details: Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th June at 12 noon and 5pm. Blocks of 10 shows starting every 15 minutes. Venue: Summerhall, meet at the Library Gallery. All tickets £5. Ages 13+. 27.6.15

The world's best-selling touring magic show which has sold out in 71 cities across 17 countries - comes to London's West End for the first time, starring the UK's hottest magician Jamie Raven. Fresh from Britain's Got Talent, where he captivated the British public with his unique magic tricks, Jamie Raven joins this ground-breaking spectacular, showcasing the dazzling talents of seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth.

The Magician, Jamie Raven. The runner-up in Britain's Got Talent 2015, this is his West End debut.

The Escapologist, Andrew Basso. Italy's star escape artist, Andrew considers Houdini his hero and is fast becoming one of the world's most popular illusionists. He is the only person in the world to perform Houdini's famous Water Torture Cell with absolutely no covers.

The Inventor, Kevin James. Known for innovative illusions, Kevin is an inventor, comedian and collector of the strange and unusual. Kevin is one of the most prolific inventors of magic in the world and has created some of the most celebrated illusions of the last century.

The Deductionist, Colin Cloud. A forensic mind reader and the closest thing in the universe to the real life Sherlock Holmes. Mixing mind magic and brain science he'll leave you convinced he's a mystical savant with the hypnotic powers of a calculated angel. He's potentially the most dangerous man in the world. Luckily, he's on our side.

The Warrior, Ben Blaque. One of the only performers on earth to attempt this type of stage performance, Ben Blaque has dazzled crowds across this world with his completely unique display of archery and showmanship.

On Friday 10th July, starring Ben Hanlin from ITV2's ‘Tricked’, Pete Heat, Jack Beavis, Tina Turner Tea Lady, Necrosis Lucia Wrestler (aka Philip Bedwell) and MC Neil Henry. From the organisers: Magic Night raises the pain threshold on magic with some wrestling and tricks with Neil Henry feeling the pain from Necrosis, lucha wrestler extraordinaire Lucha Britannia. All we’re saying is that the tricks better not go wrong or Neil Henry will be punished. Pete Heat, described as modern, edgy and powerful (by himself, but we agree – he is!) will be looking into your dreams. We’ll have a star turn by Tina Turner Tea Lady and her raunchy vocals and Jack Beavis uses props in the most unusual way; they seem to mould into themselves in his hands in ways that seem impossible. On top of all the shenanigans we also welcome Ben Hanlin to the stage from ITV2's hit show ‘Tricked’. All compered by magic Neil Henry who will be going a couple of rounds with Necrosis. Doors open 7pm. Show starts at 8pm. Tickets £14. Show ticket plus dinner £27.50. Tickets: www.ticketweb.co.uk.

Edinburgh: first city to host illusion-installation fusing magic, science and floristry. Edinburgh International Magic Festival organisers have created a brand new illusion, under the title "Sweet Dreams", fusing magic, science and floristry that sees a beautiful bed of flowers magically change colour as you travel 360 degrees around it. The illusion, inspired by the magical nature of dreams where anything is possible, reflects this year’s MagicFest theme of ‘Awake in Wonder’. The Colour Changing Flower Bed project has been 2 years in the making and is the first time a magician (Kevin McMahon AIMC), mathematician (Dr Mark Collins) and florist (Alice Shaw) have worked together to create such an illusion. The concept uses a bedstead with the mattress replaced with over 1000 flowers, painstakingly placed in precise positions inside a frame made out of playing cards that have been used in past magic performances. Each work is meticulously put together by hand and the idea behind the project is that to explore different possibilities you have to move to change your perspective, and make a dream a reality.

'The Mayar Approach' Hypnosis Workshop by Ravi Mayar. 'The reinvention of Mix & Mingle Hypnosis'. Ravi writes: My objective was to achieve a "real world" tangible approach to putting spectators under hypnosis in any mix & mingle situation. I am a certified "Train the Trainer" graduate and created a blueprint picture of an understanding on how to learn this approach. The Mayar Approach had to be done in the same mannerism and fluidity as performing the next magic trick. A professional performer needs an approach that allows him to seamlessly switch out of one style of performance into the hypnosis without too much time given to a method in which the spectator has most of the control. Over years of development, a tried and tested method of, Induction, Implication, Set up, Language and Service Recovery has been achieved and is now available to you. Please contact me on 07854 764673 ravimayar@hotmail.com www.mayarmagic.com. "Ravi originally trained in Hypnosis with the Head Hacking Team and has remained close with the team, sharing ideas ever since. Since those early days, Ravi has developed on his own and after years of tried and tested performances has finally decided to release his unique approach to Mix & Mingle Hypnosis to the public" Anthony Jacquin, Founder of Head Hacking, Author of Reality is Plastic, International Public Speaker. 20.6.15
