In history and legend has there been a more enigmatic figure than Merlin - he has captivated the imagination of generations with his mysterious abilities and wisdom.
With meet and greet, Merlin could be the ideal person to welcome your guests at your event or venue imparting wisdom, comic anecdotes and exhibiting small illusions as he circulates amongst the crowds, encouraging them to attend the larger demonstrations of his powers (indoors and out) throughout the day.
In the evenings he can be found at the banquet spellbinding the guests as they participate in his medieval magic with presentations in keeping with the atmosphere of Arthurian times.Specialising in Medieval Festivals, Events, Castles, Walkabouts in character & all kinds of Heritage Work.
Storytelling at events and heritage venues is often designed for small audiences. We wanted to do it differently.We make the ancient legends come alive through the powerful characters of Merlin, illustrated with illusion and effects. You feel the atmosphere, the eyes will widen and you will laugh, learn and be entertained!
"A most renowned doctor, astronomer & charmer also learned worthye in the Alchemical Sciences shall in this daye, in the presence of many doubters and surlye rascals confowned all those present with demonstrations of matyerial transmutions, predictions, concourse with spiryts and displays of alchemical processes."
The Tudor period extends for some 150 years with an enormous number of changes taking place throughout that time. Our presentation is well researched and constructed from a basis of authenticity, taking into account key changes but also without making any sacrifice in terms of entertainment. A number of illusions used have been recorded in contemporary accounts, indeed Reginald Scott (writing in 1584) exposed a lot of the trickery in his attempt to denounce the persecution of men and women under the banner of witchcraft. Our costume is constructed from appropriate materials to the time and designed to reflect the basic elements of the Tudor era rather than be fixed to any single date.
We do use a lot of pyrotechnics in this presentation, and we can perform this indoor or out; all we need is an emerging area as behind the curtains is the workshop where none but the initiated may enter.
From the BIGGEST illusions, to traditional favourites and all new creations!
For your Themed Day, Promotion, Festival or Trade Shows. Packages can be for static spots, big or small.
Self contained fit up for out door work with walkaround closeup, audience participation and portable illusions.
