The Freelance Informer understands that not all of us will have the luxury of spending the holidays in-person or celebrating the back of 2020 with family and friends, that is why we are scouting out virtual alternatives that could still create lasting memories.

As seen on ITV’s Dancing On Ice 2020, Ben Hanlin’s brand new LIVE Magic show is the perfect example of how people can spend time with family and friends even if they aren’t in the same place. Hanlin now offers one hour of interactive magic and comedy for the entire family beamed straight into your homes via ZOOM.

“I am so excited to perform some of my favourite tricks and brand new ones,” says Ben Hanlin the TV magician who is taking his show virtual just in time for the holiday season. “As always, the audience has a massive part to play, so you won’t just be watching a magic show, you’ll be in it!”

What you need to know:

Just like any other magic show, choose the date and time that you and your family would like to watch the Shazoom show, buy a ticket. You will instantly receive confirmation of your purchase. Before the day of the show you will be sent the exact Zoom login for that show.

YOU WILL NEED A DECK OF CARDS TO TAKE PART IN SOME OF THE SHOW! (Make sure you have one in the house – If not, you can buy them from any supermarket or petrol station).

Ben may interact with you at some point, so be prepared to be part of the show!

Other interactive shows are also available, and which Hanlin is taking part, including ‘The Christmas Party is Not Cancelled with Pat Sharp’; get ready to experience a night of fun and celebration with this brilliant virtual Christmas package hosted by the one and only Pat Sharp. 

Things get started with ‘Fun House in Your House’, an interactive game with Pat Sharp, where there’s ‘prizes to be won!’. Afterwards, your mind will be blown with the incredible magic show performed by Hanlin.

Afterwards, prepare to party with the brilliant in-house DJ and VJ, who will close the night by playing the biggest and best tunes around, live on Zoom. They’ll be taking requests and shoutouts! 

What’s more, each guest will be delivered a selection of three pre-mixed cocktails of your choosing to enjoy throughout the interactive experience. This package will also include a team leaderboard along with pre and post event support.
