Fresh from its record-breaking second summer in London's West End, the magic shows will be staged in Manila from December 25 to January 3, 2018.

The performers who will show off their magical artistry include:
Magical Bones: South London street conjurer and break-dancing master Magical Bones is considered the world’s best hip-hop magician.
