The Victorian Black Swan Inn will host a “Victorian Parlor Magic: Winter Soiree” the evening of Saturday February 12th from 7-10 pm
About this event
Unlike other victorian magic shows, this exclusive performance allows guests to get up-close and personal with this talented magician as he wanders among them while you enjoy a selection of hor d’oeurves and chat. Surrounded by vintage wall coverings, antique Victorian furnishings, and mysterious low lighting, guests will be immersed in mysterious Victorian splendor.
Close-up magic was popular at exclusive house parties in the Victorian era, and the elegant, candlelit rooms at this Victorian Inn, will set the mood perfectly and the elegant period atmosphere will transport you back to the golden age of magic as the the Black Swan Inn will seem part of the illusion as well.
Tickets are $35 per person Overnight Accommodations $109 plus tax
