When we were invited along to A Very Magical Christmas in York city centre we were really excited. We’d heard the great reviews of A Very Magical Adventure in October half term so had high hopes for the Christmas experience.
We met our Professor of Magic at St Michael the Belfry who welcomed us and chatted to the children making them feel comfortable. We were then taken on a magical quest through the streets of York with challenges to complete along the way. Our mission to find York’s secret magical school and help St Nicholas save Christmas.
The theatrical cast were amazing, weaving us through the York streets on a busy Saturday afternoon. It did not faze them. It was humorous and entertaining throughout.
Finally we discovered the secret location of the wizard school but even then there was another challenge to overcome before we could be granted access. Inside we met more characters who set out the rules of wizard school and led us through to our tables where we enjoyed a lesson in spell casting and potion making.
Here we were served our afternoon tea which was a wonderful array of sandwiches and sweet treats, much to the children’s delight! There was so much wonderful food we couldn’t eat it all! We also had a very special visit from old St Nicholas who told us stories of the past.
We ended our adventure by meeting St Nicholas and we were sent on our way with a few gifts from magic school.
We were really impressed by the cast and the range of characters over the course of the experience. So much effort has clearly been put into the costumes, locations, props and characters. It was a busy, fun filled 2 hours with so much packed into it.
We were a family of four, the children were 4 and 6 years old and were able to participate fully. Fans of witches, wizardry and magic school would be delighted by this adventure but even if you’re not it’s still a fun experience for all the family.
A Very Magical Christmas is running until 26th December. Magical happenings start from 12pm and can be booked online from £17.95.
