Unrivalled magic lessons available from Smoke and Mirrors

Posted on: 26 Aug 2022

Owner and verified Gold Star Member of the Magic Circle, Mark Bennett, is available to hire whether that be to teach a work team some tricks of the trade or to host your next event.


The Smoke & Mirrors masterclasses can be held at the theatre, at a workplace or, indeed, anywhere you want.


With over 3,000 shows under his belt over the years, Mark Bennet has for the last 7 years been the resident compere and magician at his award-winning venue, Smoke & Mirrors.



Mark's Team Building masterclass includes a one or two-hour introduction to magic. This short session is unlikely to make anyone an expert but it will be enlightening (topics explored include how to learn magical misdirection, creativity, problem-solving etc.) and very entertaining. It may well place participants outside their comfort zone, but learning how to enthuse an audience is quite an achievement.


How do cocktails and magic sound for a combination? Well, Smoke & Mirrors also offer an interactive cocktail-making class on offer where you'll be able to shake, stir, or blend your way through some of the most popular drinks.


You'll learn to make it from scratch with all-natural ingredients as you watch our bartender demonstrate different techniques for making them in addition to step-by-step instructions!


Smoke & Mirrors is the UK's only Boutique Pub and Magic Theatre and is situated on Denmark Street just around the corner from The Bristol Hippodrome. It is a place of wonder for anybody who loves magic, drinks and a fun atmosphere. This is the perfect venue for you and your friends to have a pre-theatre night out as well as a magical night out.


They also showcase fantastic local talent as part of their busy schedule of comedy magic shows, stand-up comedy, live music and even Burlesque. Whatever the occasion you really won't forget a night at Smoke and Mirrors! 

Head to Mark Bennett's website to find out more about the sessions he offers as well as any upcoming shows.
