Caledonian Sleeper treats youngest guests to on board magic show

Published: 11 Apr 2018

Overnight rail service Caledonian Sleeper brought magic to some of its youngest guests with an Easter holiday treat on Friday 6 April.

Hopscotch Magic performed a range of tricks on the London-bound service from Inverness, offering children the chance to engage with the creative performance which included everything from balloon modelling to vanishing acts.

Iain Baxter, Serco’s marketing and revenue director at Caledonian Sleeper, commented: “The Easter holiday is an exciting time and we wanted to treat our youngest guests to something special during their time off from school. 

“Children often find travelling overnight with us a magical experience so we brought some extra enchantment with Hopscotch Magic. Guests of all ages, including adults, really enjoyed the show in the on board Lounge Car, with many left questioning how such tricks are possible.”

The magic show forms part of Caledonian Sleeper’s calendar of events for 2018 which features chocolate tasting, arm knitting and whisky sampling.
