Wingardium Levi-no-sa!

When I told my magician mate I was going to see Barry Potter, his endorsement wasn't exactly glowing. However, with all the sunny optimism of a child who has just received their Hogwarts letter, I went along to the back room of a truly delightful British pub to watch the anticipated trainwreck (of the Hogwarts Express) unfold.

To my pleasant surprise, my friend was wrong and the show was positively magical.

I've got 99 problems but a snitch ain't one!

While it lacked the mouth-gaping reveals of a polished magic show, Barry Potter has real heart. From the chaotic mind of Tim Motley, winner of 20 Fringe festival awards and creator of Dirk Darrow, Barry Potter and the Magic of Wizardry is a non-stop rollercoaster of cheap gags and groan-inducing Hogwarts puns. In short, it's not for the faint-hearted.

Be warned: Tim is an incredibly skilled (albeit profusely sweaty) performer with impeccable comic timing and a sadistic predisposition for audience participation. He'll have the audience on their feet (literally)!

If you enjoy terrible puns and being part of what feels like a suitably rowdy pantomime where you have to shout, "He's behind you!" Barry Potter will definitely be your preferred potion.

A fun night out for the whole family.
