The world’s first magic café is expanding into retail.

The Twisted Fork in Stoke Newington is launching a magic shop on 4th May, offering tricks, magic sets, gadgets, optical illusions and more. The café will continue to run as usual.

Founder Richard Clark, who also runs an agency finding magicians for events, said the plan had always been to evolve the business.

He added: “I want the Twisted Fork to become a magnet that draws people to Stoke Newington. We’re the only magic shop for miles, we run regular shows and workshops and offer a complete experience. Our magicians will continue to perform in the café – now customers will be able to buy tricks and practise them at home and if there’s something they’re unsure of they can come back and one of our magicians will demonstrate it.
