The Magician's Hat - TAPAC July Holiday Programme (for kids of all ages)
Your confidence will grow as you master the tricks used by professional magicians – let the hocus pocus begin!
From clever card tricks to making rope knots disappear and coins mysteriously vanish, you’ll discover how to perform magic using coins, cards, paper, rubber bands and other everyday objects so you can practise easily at home in between classes.
You’ll meet new friends and will work on a showcase of your newfound skills which you’ll stage for your parents at the end of the course.
No prior experience is needed, just a willingness to have some fun and enter the wonderful world of magic.
