Magic Seats - Martin Brophy
Its not easy to find comprehensive listings online for up and coming magic and illusion events and tours. Often, you need to be following an artist who you are already aware of and check individual theatres for events. Even searching "magic" within well known ticketing agents, will only bring up limited results. This site attempts to serve as a quick reference guide for all those interested in magic to find out who is performing and give direction as to where to book.
As a fan of watching live magic, I used to struggle to find an easy reference to find out who was currently performing and was advertising shows. I could only find out by using sites intended for professional magicians. Hence this site, produced by a fan of magic who enjoys being an audience member!
This site posts show news daily. Of course, current focus is on Zoom shows but I hope of course to promote live shows again after lock-down.
I have been lucky to see many famous magicians perform in person and online and I hope that this site will be of use to you. This is a not for profit site with no connections to venues or booking sites. Artist adverts/promo is provided free.
I run the site independently as as a hobbyist and I also hold membership of the Leicester Magicians Network as a beginner, learning magic. A collector of all things magic related and cardistry. A magic enthusiast who is enjoying all the new connections and friendships with similar minded people.
Site content continues to expand as the site grows and includes reviews and interviews of interest. The most major content addition to the site was launched in January 2021, with a new collectables section.
For inclusion within the listings section or promo page, please notify the site using the "Get in Touch" button and provide full details of your tour/performances along with relevant website addresses/url's. I also welcome contacts from artists inviting me to review shows and conduct interviews for promotions.
Special Thanks - Nadine Brophy
To my wife Nadine who edits many of the interviews and reviews.
In Memory - Michael and Patricia Brophy
To my Mum and Dad who are sadly no longer with us. I know that they would be both be proud of this achievement, creating and managing this site. My Dad would be less impressed but would secretly be pleased. I can imagine him saying something like "What are you wasting your time on that for". Lol. My mum would have been very proud of my achievements with the site and the opportunities that it has opened up. She would most likely be wanting to get involved and would have got involved with an active interest in magic herself. Bless them both. RIP.
