Christmas Mystery Palace

3 Dec 2014 - 4 Jan 2015
Venue: Downstairs at the MAC
Christmas Show / Family / Music / Theatre


Roll Up! Roll Up! to the MAC this Christmas to meet the one, the only, the Family Hoffmann and their magical Mystery Palace - the likes of which the world has never seen!

You won’t believe your eyes when the MAC and the wonderful Cahoots NI delivers you a little bit of charm this festive season.

Be transported back in time into a world of wonder, weirdness and wickedness, with dazzling effects and show-stopping songs. Behind the feats, curiosity, sights and sounds we'll remind you all about the true magic of Christmas – family.

FEATURING: The Escapologist, The Professor, The Vanishing Boy, The Mind Reader, The Floating Lady and 17 world class illusions all in a breath-taking carnival of a show, perfect for this merry time of year.

Each child is different but we think those aged 6 plus will get the biggest kick.

Relaxed performances are specifically designed to welcome people with a learning disability, Down’s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Condition or sensory and communication disorders. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects. An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'.
