Counting Down to a Magical Christmas

If your kids are already excitedly counting down the days until Christmas, send them over to the window of the Illusioneer. Every year, the little Half Moon Lane theatre pulls out all the stops for a festive display that gradually changes throughout December to tell a seasonal story.

Expect to see festive scenes of snow, Santa and surprises — of course, with some Christmas magic thrown in.

Barrie, Herne Hill’s Illusioneer, says, ‘I get a lot of pleasure from setting up the displays and watching the faces of the children who come along to the Christmas shows at the end of December. Adults also seem to get a seasonal kick out of them as well.’

The display is changed regularly throughout the festive season, culminating on Christmas Day. The Illusioneer is based at 19, Half Moon Lane. Contact for information about the Christmas family shows on 23 and 24 December and parties for children.
