A third-generation magician who has performed all over the world will take the stage in her hometown of Glasgow for the first time.

Mandy Fletcher, from Cardonald, has been working as a magician for over ten years and can’t wait to debut her show in the city.

Known as The Enchantress, the 28-year-old illusionist has magic in her blood, inheriting the love of performing from her mother and grandfather who were also magicians.

She told The Glasgow Times: “I’m a third-generation magician.

“My mum Moira [Fletcher] is a magician and my grandfather Duncan [Fletcher] was also a magician, so I’ve kept the family name on.

She added: “My first magic convention that I ever attended, I was four months old.

“So, I’ve literally grown up around magicians, and magic and performing.

“Learning daft little tricks when I was younger, I just really enjoyed the bright lights of showbiz.”

Ms Fletcher has performed all over the world including a stint at the famous House of Illusion in Salou, Spain and residencies on ships in the Baltic Sea.

She is known for edgy stunts including swallowing razor blades and escaping from a straitjacket.

She said: “It’s something that I thought was maybe a bit different, I do a lot of strange magic.

“This version of me is maybe a bit more dangerous.”

Mandy loves big illusions as well and has an impressive resume of mystic skills. In the past she has performed big stage illusions, family shows, and adult cabaret.

The upcoming show at Websters Theatre in the West End on Saturday, October 1 is special because it will bring together six of the best magicians in Scotland to share the stage for the first time.

Called Delusions of Grandeur, the multi-performer magic show is a welcome return to normal after “a very strange two years” for performers.

Ms Fletcher said: “This show is going to be a collection of the top magicians in Scotland who are all coming together to put on something really special for one night.

“All the magicians involved in the show, we all know each other but we’ve never all been in the same place at the same time to work together.

“Every magician has their own special skill or something that’s a bit different.

“Nobody is going to be the same, there’s not going to be the same magic, it’s all very different and it’s going to be really special.

“There's going to be something for everyone.”

She added: “There’s not been anything like this in Scotland before.

“This is home grown Scottish performers wanting to do something in their home country and celebrate Scottish magic which is quite exciting.”

Ms Fletcher’s family is keen to see her perform in Glasgow as well and her mother especially can’t wait for the show.

Ms Fletcher said: “She’s a very proud mother because I’ve gone into the family industry and kept on the passion for something that’s so important in our family’s lives.

“She’s very excited about it all.”
