A review of Parlour Tricks by Natasha Tripney on 21 January 2016

Looking very dapper in their frock coats, Victorian magicians Morgan and West are an extremely appealing double-act. Having created one of the very best kids’ shows of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe with their Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show for Kids and Childish Grown-ups! and having successfully fooled Penn and Teller back in 2011, they’re currently on tour [...]

Aldeburgh often seems like it has been caught in a time travel bubble. Its quaint charms belonging to a more genteel time. It’s perhaps appropriate then that ‘time-travelling Victorian magicians’ Morgan and West visit the town as part of the HighTide Festival, inviting us to spend a Sunday evening with them, for a deliciously beguiling [...]
