Highly interactive entertainment that incorporates illusion, comedy, mind-reading and education with a Teach-A-Trick segment at the end where the children will learn two magic trick routines.

Aces Magic Entertainment currently has two full show programs to facilitate repeat OSHC bookings.

A maximum of around 50 students per session is recommended. No minimum requirements.

Most performances are usually held in the school gym or library.   Set-up time is 30-minutes. The magic show is 40-minutes duration followed by the 20-minute educational segment.

Two time-slots are available per day usually at 10.30am and 1.30pm depending on locations.

Please email us for more information or to check available booking dates and times.

TEACH-A-TRICK  More Information

Two excellent magic tricks are taught at every session. The tricks are fun to perform and items are easily obtainable and any construction required is simple.

At the end of the session, Magic Trick Instruction Sheets are emailed to the OSHC service and can be printed on request for the children who want them.

TEACH-A-TRICK 2023 includes:

1. HOUDINI METAMORPHOSIS  CARD TRICK   A playing card is sealed in a long envelope. A different playing card is placed on the outside of the envelope and covered with the folded ends. Almost instantly they change places!  This clever trick is themed to the original Houdini illusion performed with his wife Bess over 100 years ago.

2. THINK OF AN AUSTRALIAN CITY?  MIND-READ Audience members select all different Australian city names written on pieces of folded paper inside a clear plastic bag. After proving they are all different, the pieces of paper are mixed up in the bag and one is secretly selected by an audience member. The magician then proceeds to name the correct city chosen.

Simon is an incredible magician and professional with a heart of gold. He is warm and can relate to children of all ages, so they feel comfortable to join in on the fun. Many laughs were had, and his magic is perfect for adults too. Highly recommended - he won't disappoint, and we've already got future events in mind where we'll hire him again. Thanks Simon

I booked Simon last minute due to cancellation of bouncy castle (weather). He was excellent in communication. He turned up on time and entertained everyone for the full hour. Excellent and entertaining magic show. Will use again. Thanks Simon.

We booked Simon for our work Christmas party as a roving magician and he was an absolute hit with our staff. Simon is a fantastic entertainer, he was not only professional but lots of fun, leaving us all laughing but also in awe of his magical talent. We also loved the balloon animals - who knew adults would love balloon animals so much! Would highly recommend Simon for your next party or event.

Simon's showmanship is second to none. He controlled the room for an hour at our Magical themed dinner party. His tricks were mind blowing and left us talking about them for the rest of the evening. Amazing entertainment!
