ILLUSION and impossibility are coming to rural Dorset next month.

Magicians, time travellers and all-round spiffing chaps Morgan & West will perform in Dorset from March 1 to March 13.

Their brand new show is chock full of jaw-dropping, brain-bursting, gasp-eliciting feats of magic.

Touring to no less that eight venues through Artsreach, the county's rural touring scheme, the dashing chaps will offer up a plateful of illusion and impossibility, all served with the wit, charm and panache that made their first tour of The Time Travelling Magicians a sell out success.

Crowned the winners of ITV’s Penn and Teller Fool Us, Morgan and West admit that they find it 'really very satisfying to tell an honest lie on stage.

"When you come to see a magic show you understand that what you see isn’t real – everything is a trick.

"We are showing you something that is, by all rights, impossible but clearly it isn’t otherwise we wouldn’t have done it!

"So you are complicit in your own deception, a deception that we very much hope you enjoy.”

For a hugely entertaining night out for all the family, don’t miss the chance to catch this pair of Victorian time travellers at a village hall near you. Early booking is recommended.
