IF you want to be entertained and enthralled by a live magic show, look no further than the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

The Real Magic Show will be brought to the university city by four Cambridge University students called The Fellowship, on Wednesday, March 14.

The Fellowship's team leader Devesh Rajeev Shete said: "The show aims to revive the interest in live magic as well as raising money for The Prince's Trust which helps underprivileged youngsters find employment."

The group, whose other members include Sareet Shah, Chris Wei Wen Khoo, and Rehan Hussain have also teamed up with John Archer, who is reowned for his unique comedy magic, Martin Taylor, a hypnotist who focuses on the basic principles of human psychology, and Sam X, an illusionist.

"The strength of this show is that it has a bit of everything, including audience participation," Devesh said.

The Fellowship hopes to raise about £10,000 for the Trust.

Rehan Hussain, a member of The Fellowship, said: "We could just stick ourselves in the Market Square with collection boxes in our hand, but I am very much against that approach.

"We want people to enjoy giving to charity, rather than come under peer pressure to donate into a collection box."

The show starts at 7.30pm.
