VISITORS marvelled at a teenage magician during a special late-night opening of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum.

Performing to crowds of more than 100 people, the 18-year-old dazzled audiences during three shows of his close-up magic and illusion act.
The full-time magician from Leeds, said: “I think it was great. The crowd were all cheering and everyone was happy. It was a buzzing night.”
Alongside the magic act, visitors were treated to live Flamenco performances, tarot card readings, Chinese astrology, Druid storytelling and special curator tours of the Beaumont Street museum.
