This lecture is set to be a very interesting lecture about Jon Gresham, showman, fire-eater and museum proprietor who created his first Sideshow in the early 1950’s and over almost twenty years he built up an empire of sideshow attractions that appeared at seaside amusement parks including, Scarborough Margate, Rhyl, Yarmouth, Porthcawl, and at Belle Vue and back-end fairs.  Foreseeing the demise of the live show as a fairground attraction his shows closed and went into storage in 1969. Jon Marshall and his team of side show creators have lovingly restored and recreated 7 of these side show illusions and still perform them around the country.

Anyone will enjoy this lecture if you’re into the history of magic you’ll love it!
