School Magic Shows perform impressive and very funny magic shows for all ages from pre-school to Key Stage 2. Our marvellous magic shows are packed to the brim with conjuring, comedy and action, and there's absolutely tons of exciting audience participation as well.

Shows are 30, 45 or 60 minutes in duration and we can do either just the one show or a number of shows in one day. We perform our magic shows to educate, to tie in with a topic, as a treat for your class, school or year group. or just for fun!

We cover London, Surrey, Sussex and West Kent.

WishWorks Puppet Shows have been delivering high quality educational shows, workshops and storytelling sessions since 1999. We are passionate about working in education and believe puppetry to be an excellent way of communicating complex issues and dry facts in a captivating, engaging, and pleasurable way

Our puppets are friendly and non-threatening and children can relate to them and their behaviour without distancing themselves emotionally from the characters.

Shows are all two handed, apart from story-telling. The shows are all theatre quality and we are happy to perform for a single class or to up to 300 students, Goldifox being particularly suitable for large audiences. Shows are from 30 - 50 minutes in duration. WishWorks are based in Lewes.
