Master of the Macabre is – quite simply – the most terrifying magic show you will ever see…
Warning – the show is only suitable for ages 15 and up.
Benedict Barber is one of Britain’s most exciting new talents, he has honed his particular brand of dark, twisted magic on the streets of London and Master of the Macabre will be his first stage show.
