“wonderful magic in a very special venue”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Sonic the magician put on a wonderful show full of surprising twists and turns in a private suite at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. He performed fluently with panache and gentle humour, creating a atmosphere that was welcoming and mysterious at the same time. The Victorian theme tied the presentation together very well and was entirely appropriate for the period style of the building. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and, from the reactions of other people, I was not alone. This was an evening out to remember!

“Sonic's Victorian Magic Show !”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Sonic, the magician, completed our memorable visit to this beautiful Victorian Hotel by staging a quite amazing period magic show suited to the opulent setting. The air of mystery created kept the audience guessing to the end. We'll be back Sonic. Thanks.

“unique 'must see'”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We saw the last of the current series of 'The Magic Hour' and hope very much that it continues into the new year because we'll tell our friends to go and see it. Sonic's welcoming style and the fabulous setting of St Pancras Hotel made this the best small scale up-close magic show we've ever seen. And you get complimentary drinks beforehand! As the hotel is such a pleasure to be in our party of six stayed on and had drinks for some time afterwards as we chatted about what we'd just seen. What stays with me is the astonishment (how could that happen?) and the changing pace from upbeat fun to darker mysteries. A brilliant hour of entertainment, well worth the very reasonable price. An absolute 'MUST SEE' !!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

A most pleasant surprise. A chance to see more of this wonderful building, but most od all to enjoy some excellent 'magic'. Charmingly presented by Sonic the Magician and he had us all believing that his wonderful 'tricks' really were magic. Go and see and tell all your friends.

“The Magic Hour - You HAVE to see this!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

A truly magnificent piece of entertainment. With a Victorian themed show in such a wonderful Victorian setting, Sonic the Magician created air of mystery that constantly had the audience asking ourselves how he did it. I will be returning!
