MEGA ILLUSION SHOW - Suitable For Any Size Of Audience
Slightly Unusual’s MEGA SHOW will guarantee that guests will come up to you and congratulate you on a great event- even if you don’t want them to!
The show features non stop epic grand illusions. Watch as a girl is flattened like a pancake in front of your very eyes, marvel as two people change places in less than a second.
Many of Slightly Unusual's illusions have been custom designed for their shows. This means they cannot be seen anywhere else but in one of their Mega Shows.
Slightly Unusual's Mega Show features unique presentations that are bizarre, strange, hilarious and unlike anything you have seen before.
THE ILLUSION SHOW
Sometimes clients haven't got the space or the budget for Slightly Unusual's Mega Show. It is for this reason that they have developed a show that has the same feel as their Mega Show but without the Grand Illusions. Instead Slightly Unusual use custom designed smaller illusions which will fit into most performance spaces.
This show features Slightly Unusual's signature routine 'Heads Off' in which a girl's head is removed with no cover whatsoever.
Imagine having Slightly Unusual open your business conference with a magical production of your MD or CEO who then goes onto give their Keynote Speech.
Imagine starting your Wedding reception with one of their Mega Illusion Shows except the opening illusion is a magical production of the Bride and Groom who then sit down to enjoy the rest of the show.
CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING
Finally ~ Team Building has come of age! What better way to get your colleagues and associates to bond, engage with one another and have a huge amount of fun, than by turning them into magicians and illusionists? Slightly Unusual's unique take on corporate Team Building means that everyone will become engrossed in the mystery, hilarity and showmanship of performing magic. Like to find out more?

WEDDINGS - Stage & Close Up Magic
Slightly Unusual perform at over 100 weddings a year. No two weddings are the same and different couples use magic in different ways. Some clients book close up magic whilst others book their stage show. Here are some examples of how both close up magic and stage magic can be used:
Something that has become increasingly popular during the evening reception is to stage an illusion show before the wedding band or DJ starts. Slightly Unusual can perform one of their full illusion shows and then compere on the next act. A show can run from 20 minutes to 45 minutes or more and ensures that absolutely no one misses out on seeing the magic. Slightly Unusual can even open the show by magically producing the Bride or Groom on stage. Imagine the look on your guests' faces as you appear from nowhere to start the evening! Clients regularly send us feedback explaining the show they booked was the highlight of their evening and something they will never forget.
CLOSE UP MAGIC
1. During the photographs, it is usual that most people are not directly involved in having their picture taken and so they are often left standing around; this is an ideal time to entertain with close up magic.
2. Before the meal, there is often a period where people are getting drinks and standing or sitting around in small groups, again this is the ideal time for mix and mingle magic as it makes the perfect ice breaker.
3. Magic is also a perfect addition to the wedding breakfast working between courses. It helps to bring people together who may have only met for the first time when they sat down at the table a few moments before.
4. Close Up Magic works perfectly at the start of the evening reception. Just as the evening guests arrive is the perfect time as guests may be standing around awkwardly and looking to be brought into a group.
For a limited time Slightly Unusual have a special offer available. Anyone that books one of their award winning illusion shows will receive close up magic TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE.
