LIVE MAGIC SHOWS:

Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th May

Ian Keable

Winner of The Magic Circle Best Comedy Act

brings his one may show direct to Bristol for 2 nights only!

Saturday 11th May

Colin McLeod

The Man Who Knows.....Stuff

Words said with confidence as Colin McLeod took a captivated audience through his spectacular show, ‘It’s All in the Mind’ at the Camera Obscura tonight. With a venue entirely fitting for this particular spectacle, the audience recoiled a little as Colin’s use of the word ‘mentalist’ has negative associations with those of us not particularly versed in the workings of the human mind. Supported by Kieron the Mighty.

Friday 17th - Saturday 18th May

Mark Roberts

This is Mark at his finest 45 minutes of pure entertainment. Mind boggling feats of mind reading and subliminal persuasion with a smattering of humour along the way. Using a mixture of high level psychological trickery, misdirection, persuasional techniques and all-round chicanery, Mark will appear to read minds, duplicate unseen drawings, influence behaviour, become a human lie detector, rapidly memorise large chunks of data and much, much more. Supported by Kieron the Mighty.

Friday 24th - Saturday 25th May

The Wizards of Odd

Aaron Hayes & Jonti Sparrow are ‘The Wizards Of Odd’ a hilarious, vicarious and ever so slightly temerarious double act which takes Comedy, Magic & Music and squishes it all together into a family friendly 45 minute show! Supported by Kieron the Mighty.

Friday 31st May - Saturday 1st June

Matthew Le Mottée

Matthews show includes his signature routines among a whole host of magical feats that will have everyone laughing and amazed at what they witness throughout this magic packed show.

...................................................................................................................... Cocktail

Cocktail of the month: Orchard Breeze

A refreshing summery combination of white wine, lime and elderflower laced with vodka and finished with homemade apple jam. Perfect for the spring. Whisky

Whisky of the month: Highland Park Loki

The second release in Highland Park’s Valhalla Collection following last year’s Thor release. Loki is Thor’s adoptive brother, a mischievous soul, with an enigmatic character. Highland Park has created a whisky that matches Loki’s unique personality; a hit of sweet smoke from the peated cask gives way to cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and hints marmalade. Finishing on milk chocolate and a hint of marzipan. Beer

Beer of the month: Blue Moon

An invigorating, full bodied beer at 5.4% ABV, but with a twist all of its own. Served with a slice of orange to bring out the unique citrus flavours.
