About the show

Join Tony Middleton 'Sonic' - headliner of London's most successful parlour magic show The Magic Hour - for a live interactive magic experience like no other. Experience Victorian illusions, mind-reading, and sleight of hand demonstrations that will blow your mind. Yes that's right - even across the internet impossible things will occur. And when the magic involves you directly, you'll wonder if it's real witchcraft, or simply... virtually impossible!


Sonic was featured on Penn & Teller: Fool Us and has performed all over the world from Rome to Rio de Janiero. He has appeared at almost all of London's top 5 star hotels, including Claridges, The NED, St Pancras Renaissance, and Savoy - where his 5 star sell out show Sleight of Hand on the Strand ran for over 2 years. He is currently Resident Magician at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, where his show The Magic Hour plays weekly (during normal times).

The Magic Hour was awarded Travellers Choice 2020, and entered the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame in 2018. It is the longest running parlour magic show in the UK - established over 7 years ago.

Tony performed magic tricks for our team that were really impressive and worked well within a zoom setting that can be challenging.  He also walked through some of the tricks in detail to teach us how to perform them, which showed how effective they are as well as simple to master.  I would thoroughly recommend.
