A former Young Magician of the Year will be bringing his best tricks to the Barking Broadway theatre on Friday.

Michael Jordan will leave you saying “how did he do that” for the finale of his High Jinx Magic, Illusion and Circus mini-tour during February half term.

He has been taking to stages across the country with his fast-paced show alongside his wife Tansyn Sear and some circus girls to put on a performance which is fun for the whole family.

“I’m really looking forward to it, as it’s always good fun being on tour with this show,” Michael said.

“It’s not just a show for kids – it’s for adults as well as it’s a real family show.”

The magician recently returned from representing the UK at the prestigious International Magic festival in France.

“It was really good fun because you meet acts from all over the world,” Michael explained.

The rising star is a past winner of the coveted International Brotherhood of Magician’s British Ring Shield and has performed across Europe and America, as well as enjoying a four-year stint at Blackpool Pleasure Beach with his own show.

It first all first started for him roughly 10 years ago.

“I got into magic at about nine when my granddad bought me a Paul Daniels magic set for Christmas,” Michael said.

“Then every year after I got new different gadgets and tricks to play with or try out.”

Michael’s incredible tricks are known for being full of humour and the audience is encouraged to get involved too. Don’t miss out!

The High Jinx show starts at 2pm on Friday.

Tickets cost £8.50 to £10. Call 020 8507 5607 to book.
