Top Hat Tuesdays (Dinner & Magic Show)

Come and join us for another night of Top Hat Tuesdays! We have an unforgettable night of magic and mystery lined up, featuring some of the country’s best entertainers!

Top Hat Tuesdays are a celebration of the magical arts, showcasing the best of Melbourne’s local and travelling magicians.

Theme, theme, theme! That is surely the tagline of our grand September spectacle, as we bring together some of the best of Melbourne’s enchanting and thematic performers. And what a treat it will be with the lovely ladies of Voila! hosting the evening! From sell-out shows at the Melbourne Magic Festival, Voila! is the exciting result of collaboration between magician, Lee Cohen and circus artist, Emma Shepherd. This passionate pair of performers have merged their respective skills in circus and magical arts together, incorporating multiple skill sets to bring you beautiful and fun performance pieces. And, over the course of this unforgettable evening, they’ll be joined by an array of spectacular acts:

  • Felix Nothus – If Johnny Depp was a magician, he would be Felix Nothus. Having grown up in and around circuses, and meeting many colourful and imaginative characters along the way, Felix became a real magician’s apprentice from an early age. And now it’s your chance experience some of the magical journey that created this sublime performer.
  • Tom Stevens – Is the hand really quicker than the eye? As a professional sleight of hand artist, we’ll let Tom convince you on that one! Described as “absolutely incredible” by his corporate clients, Tom’s uncanny abilities need to be seen to be believed. So sit back, relax, and let your imagination be captivated.
  • Ben Hutton – As one of our favourite performers here at Top Hat Tuesday, Ben fuses magic, music and surrealism like no other. His odd and otherworldly performances have an entrancing ability, sweeping even the most skeptical minds into a flight of dreamy unreality. Experience for yourself just why we’re so thrilled to have Ben back on our stage!
  • Doc Andrews – Doc is an old western snake oil salesman (part country doctor part used car salesman). After running a series of tests with the audience, and several individuals on stage, the good Doc will demonstrate the healthful benefits of this Miracle Elixir. This show will remove stress, lighten your load, tickle your funny bone, and pull your leg. Laughter is indeed the best medicine and Doc Andrews lays it on thick.

Hi Meetup group!

We've always found it improves our experience if we've caught up together ahead of the show. Let's go for dinner from 6:00In the absence of other suggestions, I've picked the "Chilli Cafe" - just around the corner (see map above). Don't worry if you're someone who doesn't like chilli, only a few of their dishes actually have chilli (they're marked), and they have a wide range for cheap prices. I'll reserve a table. Even if you don't want to eat out, please come and meet with us anyway. It's a social event :-)

IMPORTANT!!! The price will be $15 , unless we can get 10 or more people. I'll be flogging the event to lots of people, but it would be great if you can try to get some extras as well.
