Excellent night really enjoyed the evening. Didn't know what to expect but was highly impressed. And very good value for money would highly recommend. The venue the ivy house in Nunhead is unique. Rosaleen visited The Ivy House on 13 Jul 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed the night! The show was superb, the pre-show magic tricks were captivating. It was a busy audience without it being crammed in the space. I only wish the venue had turned on the air conditioning. It got a tad too hot with the doors closed and all of us in there. Felt rather sorry for the performers doing their routines at full glam in such a hot environment. Will definitely go back for more. Pedro visited The Ivy House on 13 Jul 2016

A Great Night out, in a great venue with great entertainment. So far there has been a hypnotist, a ventriloquist, Magicians and Mind-Readers. All incredibly funny and well rehearsed acts.
