Impossible Occurrences began in July 2014. Some of the show material has changed and varied over the years a little, but it has never been advertised as a new show. If you have seen the show before and come back it is likely you will see a similar show again.

The show is suited for ages 10 plus, this is not a children’s magic show. Although there is no profanity or adult themes in the show, it is aimed at a mature audience. This is not a show suitable for younger children.
But can I bring a 5 or 6 year old?
We get a question similar to this almost every day. In summary it is not recommended. The show goes for 80 minutes, they may have difficulty seeing if they are little and may get restless. The show room is intimate so if they are disruptive they will need to removed from the show by a parent / guardian.
Ultimately you know your little one best so this is at your discretion, but we do not recommend children younger than 10 years.
Each performance is held at the The Marriott Hotel Melbourne, Exhibition St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia, only a short walk from Parliament station. VIEW MAP
