Just when you think magic has died, in come Morgan and West the time travelling magicians armed with some spiffing looks, a couple of top hats and of course a trusty pack of cards. The two take on Wilton's Music Hall with flair and brilliance.

This is not just your average music show, Morgan and West have a theme. As the name suggests,  they time travel! The pair incorporate comedy, ad libbing, suspense and the  all things 1900s into a 90 minute show. With audience participation involved, this is a show that both adults and kids alike can get involved with and the magicians really they really know how to hold a crowd from the word go.

The tricks on stage are a mix of some I've seen before and some I haven't, but the child in me can't get enough and I could gladly watched them all night. They are skilled as well as witty and really capture the essence of magic.

Although the stage has quite a few props on it and is decorated in a way that implied they were going to be used more, they were used, and needed, very little.

I was lucky (or unlucky depending on how you see it!) to be called up on stage. Now, what I was part of is not one for the faint hearted but the outcome will amaze you... I won't say more to spoil the surprise...

If you've always questioned magicians I recommend you see this show. The comedy alone will leave you wanting more, and if you're like me, you'll want to back again and again to try and work out how everything is done! 

Morgan and West: Time Travelling Magicians is on at the Wilton's Music Hall until the 28th April, take your mum, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, nan, grandad... bring everyone! You won't want to miss out.
