THE HAPPENINGS

The Happenings small logo
Illusionists Barry and Stuart set about making the unbelievable believable to the unsuspecting residents of towns across the UK and America. Using magic, misdirection and suggestion, they slowly create a rumour amongst the town folk that something extraordinary is happening in the quiet place they call home. Creating a whirlwind of press interest and buzz among the town's unsuspecting residents they go about creating weird and wonderful stories similar to a movie experience as ghosts, alien invasions, vampires and a secret psychic army take over.
