Presented by Big Mouth Entertainment and Magic Africa Productions, Hocus Pocus is a show filled with hard-hitting mentalism and mind reading routines as well as more traditional magic tricks as Peel guides the audience through a variety of illusions and feats all blended together with a fun-loving and humorous approach.
