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.

Wow, another year has absolutely flown by! But December doesn’t just mark our big, end-of-year Christmas show, it’s also our chance to throw a real party of an evening, celebrating what has been an absolute joy ride of magical entertainment over the year. So we’ve brought back some big names and fan favourites to say goodbye to 2013 with a bang! And that means that only one man can host: Australia’s honest conman – Nicholas J Johnson. Join him as he brings some real magic to your festive season!

• Anthony De Masi – As one of the country’s premier magicians, Anthony boasts a magical repertoire that exceeds the average person’s vocabulary. Classic magic with a modern flare, Anthony is a fan favourite, sure to leave you spiralling through the incredible realm of his imagination.

• Raymond Truong – This young master at sleight-of-hand is no stranger to Melbourne, regularly taking to the streets to amaze the unsuspecting Melbourne public. He returns to Top Hat Tuesday with some more mind-bending trickery and sneakery to bamboozle your brains.

• Richard Wibberley – Everyone enjoys parody, and Richard delivers one hilarious send-up of the egotistic magic scene. Watch in hysterics as Richard blunders around stage like a disorientated two-legged elephant while his assistant Minnie attempts to make sense of it all!

• Cath Jamison – As Australia’s leading female mentalist, Cath delivers spectacular and edgy performances, having won critical acclaim as one of the most prolific talents in the Australian entertainment industry. If you’ve not seen her perform before, boy are you in for a treat!

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.

    hi Christopher i'm planning to be at chilli café at ab 7pm, show starts at 7.30, right?

    December 3, 2013

    • Christopher

      Hi Mary, they like us to be seated well before that so they can seat extra people around us.
      Yes 7pm latest please, earlier is always best, then you will get to chat without the magicians telling you to be quiet ;-)
      At the Chili Café you're not required to order any food, can just come and be social :-)
