Bruce Glen’s Magical Soirées are best described as ‘storytelling magic shows for adults. Bruce’s unique performance style has seen him invited to the famed Edinburgh Fringe; Adelaide Fringe and Fringe World Perth.

In 2015, he presented his ‘Imaginary Magic’ show in Sydney (ten sold-out shows) as part of the SMH Spectrum Now Festival. In addition, at sold-out Edinburgh International Magic Festival shows and at the famous London headquarters of The Magic Circle, Bruce left audiences gasping in disbelief – and also wondering if he had actually read their minds!

Greg Poppleton

Greg Poppleton is Australia’s only authentic 1920s-30s singer with band. Recent performance highlights: 2020 Sydney Festival, resident band Great Art Deco Ball, resident 1920s band Gin Mill Social.
