Fresh from its ground-breaking run in London’s West End, audience should prepare to be mesmerized and baffled as ‘Impossible’ brings together world-class performers showing off a stunning range of magical artistry.

Lloyd Wood (Director): “The Impossible team are embarking on an extraordinarily exciting journey bringing together masters of their craft from the UK and abroad to demonstrate their exceptional skill, dexterity and fearlessness presenting original and inventive stage magic.

Exploring the feats of the impossible with grand illusion, sleight of hand, daredevil escapology and mind-blowing mentalism we aim to inspire and thrill our audiences from all around the UK whilst taking them on a journey through the light and dark of magic, mysticism and mystery across the ages.”

Jamie Hendry (Producer): “I am thrilled that after the phenomenal reception audiences of all ages gave Impossible in London’s West End, we will be touring the show around the UK featuring bigger illusions and spectacles than ever seen in the show before. I’m delighted to see so many magic shows open since Impossible launched last year proving the magic really is back!”

Impossible is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions and was directed in the West End by Anthony Owen and Lloyd Wood. The tour is directed by Lloyd Wood with scenic design by Andrew D. Edwards, lighting design by Tim Lutkin and sound design by Gareth Owen.
