Magic festival line-up launched

KEVIN McMahon, director of the Edinburgh International Magic Festival, has a spring in his step as he launches the event's programme.

The festival will run in the city from June 27 until July 4 and will include workshops, family shows and performances from names such as David Blanco, Colin Cloud and Billy Reid.

More than 5000 people attended the festival last year and this summer's event will promote magic as an art form to a new audience in a number of venues across the city.
