Jim the Magician entertains Edinburgh
Jim the Magician

Jim the Magician is a really talented Edinburgh entertainer. He mainly does tricks with cards, but then there is that other trick with the ring that disappears…..

Yes we are still mystified!

We first met Jim last year when he was doing his Fringe show at The Pleasance, and since then the self-taught entertainer has given up his day job to concentrate on magic.


You will now find the full-time magician down at The Pitt Market in Leith every weekend in June and July entertaining the customers there.

Jim explained : “I suppose I am doing magic busking! This is a great place with food and drink, live music and lots of chat. So the magic fits in well.

“I have been learning new tricks. The great thing about busking is that I can try out my new tricks here!”

If you haven’t been to The Pitt, there are different food and drink outlets every weekend at the pop-up market, and there is always music and now there is magic to entertain you too!

The Pitt, Edinburgh Food and Drinks Yard, is at 125 Pitt Street EH6 4DE from 12 noon each Saturday and Sunday. More information here.
