Waves of wonder rock Tirur
Tirur, Malappuram: Three-day magic festival organised by the Magic Academy with the support from the Municipality of Tirur offered a whirlpool of wonders for the town. The festival was held during 27-29 November at the Wagon Tragedy memorial municipal town hall. To herald the pomp there was an extra performance on 26th exclusively for the students of Bharatma Senior Secondary School here.
Tirur is a historic town in Malappuram, the home district of Gopinath Muthukad. For the people of his soil, Mr. Muthukad had ‘World of Illusions’ an amazing new edition of his entertainment shows. The show comprised of a sumptuous mix of awe-inspiring magic, elating music, hip hops, drama and light and sound spectacles.

Three days of the event were marked by an overflowing crowd in the hall and beelines of people at the ticket counter. The Municipality’s support was mainly because of the free magic show the Academy had offered for spreading health and hygiene messages and the publicity offered to the slogan, ‘Clean Green Tirur’.
Surprise guest: Noted lyricist and composer, Kaithapram Damodaran Namboodiri visited the magic troupe at the Government Rest House on one of the festival days.
The funds raised through the magic festival would be used by the Academy for various welfare measures it has undertaken for magicians.
