■ The College of Magic in Claremont will host their Traditional Children’s Magic Festival from Wednesday July 5 to Saturday July 8 with more than 50 entertainers including jugglers, clowns, mimes, escapologists, magicians and stilt walkers. There will also be interactive workshops where aspirant wizards can learn how to perform their own tricks and photo opportunities with the college’s resident magical bunny. “The Children’s Magic Festival has been a highlight on the magical calendar for both our performers and the public since 1994, attracting magic fanatics from all over Cape Town. This year, we’re excited to once again welcome all of you and encourage you to dress up to the festival theme – a World of Fantasy. Fairies, magicians, princesses and superheroes, we want to see you all at our incredible event this winter school holiday,” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.
