Scenes of heavy drug use and reference to rape.
Mason King has a slightly different background to the majority of other performers of the magic genre. While as a child he dreamt of mastering the art of sleight of hand, other goals and dreams got in the way. He studied Psychology at Edge Hill University (which he credits with assisting in his performances today) and from there he spent 10 years working as a professional wrestler all over the UK and Europe!
During this time he became friends with American pro wrestler and Mentalist Chad Collyer who absolutely blew his mind with his mind reading abilities. Shortly thereafter King suffered a health issue which kept him at home for some time and during this period he began to learn the art of Sleight of Mind himself!
Mason King - Sleight of Mind

Friday 2nd - 16th August (exc Sundays)
Running Time: 45 mins

For the past 12 months Mason and his director Italian Mentalist Matteo Borrini have put together a selection of unique and original mind-bending routines, that shows exactly what the art of Sleight of Mind represents including a blockbuster ending that hits the audience right between the eyes! (Not literally!)
Once he was physically able Mason then began travelling the world from the US to Asia watching and learning from some of the masters of the mentalism craft while also developing his own performance style along the way. Fast forward 10 years and King is now a highly in demand performer on the Corporate circuit all around the UK and Europe.
