 Two of British Magics biggest names combine to bring you an evening packed full of magic, laughter, performance, business, stories and philosophy.

After studying a BA in Theatre Practice at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London he went on to gain a degree in Special Effects from the University of Hertfordshire. He has mentored many of the young stars of  the British Magic scene and enjoys nothing more than passing on  the teachings of his own magic mentor Eugene Burger whom Matthew studied with when living in Chicago.
