The Magic Hour is an evening show of close up conjuring and prestidigitation in the style of the Victorian masters. That’s what is says on the show programme, and is essentially what you get. Except it’s not an hour. It’s about...

Really good, really entertaining. The tricks were spectacular! Would definitely recommend and if you'd like to be picked on during the show arrive early and get either the front row or the seats on the sides (i.e. seats that would be easy for the magician to get to). The visuals on the back row are also not as great and to see certain tricks you'd have to stand up Esha visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 01 Aug 2016

It was good but a little disappointing, there wasn't much I hadn't seen before, Sonic definitely isn't my favourite magician, he seemed a bit fake and not funny at all, dull compared to other magicians I have seen but I guess its what you're into.

It was fabulous. There was a trick that I've seen on TV many times. It's easy to dismiss magic on tv by suggesting it's edited. But when you witness it for yourself it's literally gobsmacking!! I could go on and write an essay on how much I enjoyed this great magic show. Trust me. Go and see it for yourself. Henry visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 25 Jul 2016

Very entertaining!! We were in London for a short duration and a friend recommended the show. We loved Sonic, as he is simply brilliant. You keep guessing the entire evening and every act blows the mind. We even got a tiny souvenir. Highly recommended !! Ankita visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 23 Jul 2016

A brilliant evening. The cocktails beforehand were a great start, and the show was brilliant. Kept us guessing all night long, and full of brilliant surprises. I would highly recommend giving it a go. Henrietta visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 27 Jun 2016

Fantastic! We celebrated our anniversary at Sonic's The Magic Hour. His skills are spot on and totally entertaining and the logistics of the show at the Grand Royale are well orchestrated. See this Show! A great night out! Chris visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 21 Jun 2016

Amazing venue and incredible entertaining. Pure magic in the perfect place of the Gran Royale hotel. So near to the magician Sonic that it nearly becomes a private show. Unforgettable! Guillermo visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 10 Jun 2016

Started a little slow but quickly built to a very strong delivery, underwhelming (deliberately) with a pleasing air of authority, professionalism and cleverness. The room is not the best and the luck with seating could mean a terrific or a slightly disappointing evening. Sonic would do better to find a more suitable venue for what is an excellent performance. david visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 02 Jun 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed the show, very atmospheric. Still trying to figure out the illusions. One criticism were the seating arrangements, we were at the end of a row and it was difficult to follow some of the magic taking place at the central table. Maybe semi-circle rows would work better.!! Carol visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 04 May 2016

Excellent performance...just when you think you understand what's happening something comes along to blow your mind again. Only disappointment was the cocktail, but not enough to detract from the five stars. Still feeling amazed now 2 days later. Joanna visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 14 May 2016

Great fun!! A really intimate show with fantastic audience interaction. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the show and would definitely recommend it to others! Cocktails are delicious too! Kim visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 12 Apr 2016

We had a fabulous evening at The Magic Hour. Great venue with an intimate setting, but it was the fabulous magic that really made it. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Peter visited 10-11 Carlton House Terrace on 31 Mar 2016
