The world of magicians has enthralled people through the ages. Many childhood fables had an evil magician as the villain.

Travellers to the area Tyne and Wear county have many types of accommodation which cater to the entire spectrum of demands from Bed and Breakfast, cottage or apartment just as the myriad selections that are available for Student Housing Newcastle. Travellers to Newcastle upon Tyne have many ways of getting into the countryside surrounding the city. Among the cycle routes that can be accessed from Newcastle are The Hadrian’s Cycleway, The Coast and Castles Cycle route from Newcastle to Edinburgh, The Coast to Coast route from Tynemouth to Whitehaven, The South Tyne Trail from the source of the Tyne to Haltwhistle and the Three Rivers route which covers the Tyne, the Wear and the Tees.

The world of magicians has enthralled people through the ages. Many childhood fables had an evil magician as the villain. While it is almost obvious to everyone that magic is a performing art, there was a sense of disbelief that lifted magicians to the level of legends in the past. The legend of catching a bullet with the mouth was one of the most famous tricks in the past. The most famous personality who is associated with this trick was called Chung Ling Soo. The real name of the American magician was William Ellsworth Robinson. He died during a demonstration in London in the year 1918.

Every trick that commands an audience requires many months and years of practice before being accomplished with panache. A magician with repute currently is Steven Frayne who is popularly known as Dynamo. In Newcastle, the world of magic is the subject of an exhibition called Magic Worlds which will be running from March 22 to June 22, 2014 at the Great North Museum in Hancock, Barras Bridge. The exhibits include a plate used by Chung Ling Soo to catch the bullet.

Students of Newcastle University and Newcastle Business School can catch the touring show as the venue is in the vicinity. Many performing arts of the present day can be enjoyed with a visit to the Newcastle Gateshead area. Theatre abounds in this part of the city with centres such as Theatre Royal, Sunderland Empire, Live Theatre, Northern Stage, Metro Radio Arena and The Sage Gateshead.

The AV Festival is being held throughout the month of March 2014. From Thursday, March 27, to Sunday, March 30, a musical show is being hosted at Dunston Staiths by the Industrial Music group Test Dept. Viewers will be accommodated on boats which can be boarded from River Escapes pontoon at Newcastle Quayside. The event that lasts one hour and 15 minutes can be caught in two slots on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 6.45 pm and 8.15 pm. The boats will leave 10 minutes after these timings. On Sunday, the timings are 7.45 pm and 9.15 pm. The event is a collage of cinema, music and the events from the Miners’ strike that took place three decades back. Tickets are currently available only for the second slot on the last day. Travellers do not have any dearth of events, though, with The AV Festival of art, music and film having a packed list of events all through March.
