Many comedians use smaller venues to try out new material for their Edinburgh Fringe appearance. Similarly Top Magician Paul Howes is offering us a sneak preview of some never-before-seen stage magic in preparation for his forthcoming tour of theatres throughout the South-East.
Preparation for the show begins at 7.30pm with Paul Howes taking to the stage around 8.15pm.
So get to the Boathouse Cafe and Bar nice and early to secure your best FREE seats. Enjoy some bar snacks and a fantastic selection of craft ales and cocktails while you wait. Then be prepared to be amused and amazed in equal quantity.
After the Stage Magic, the evening continues with more drinks, chat and some really funky tunes. And when the magician reappears I am sure we will be able to persuade him to show us some close-up table magic whilst he canvasses your opinion of tonight’s stage show.
The Boathouse is a lovely venue with amazing views over the boats and barges on the River Roding. Bring your camera to capture some of those from the Boathouse Terrace.
You are also welcome to take and share photos of the stage show. However, as this is a FREE preview of a much larger paid event, we would ask you to refrain from taking videos or using apps like Facebook Live or Instagram Live. Your cooperation is appreciated.
This event is designed to appeal to a family audience and children are more than welcome to attend. The venue also has a disabled car park, lift and spacious disabled toilet.
