The Kings Arms pub on Bloom Street is about to host a week long Magic and Mentalism Festival, with strange stuff going off for most of the afternoons and evenings. 

Most intriguing is the Kings Arms Ghost Tour: Not For The Faint Hearted which promises that when you go into the cellar of the 125 year old ale house "you are not alone". The Ghost Tours take place most evenings and some afternoons (£4/£3).

The Festival kicks off with professional psychic/mediums Angela and Cathy doing fortune telling and tarot readings in the bar for a tenner. They'll also be there from 6pm on the following three nights.

Also on the 26th is an evening of mind reading upstairs at the pub, with David Lgo: Magister Mentis offering a contemporary twist on the subject at 7:30pm (£6), followed at 9pm by comedy psychic Jonathan Royle with his ESP (Egg Sausage and Peas) show (£6).

The following day, the 27th sees another performance by David Lgo at 7:30pm, with The H Factor at 9pm (£6) – a hypnotist show of mind magic and trance illusion, where `You don't have to be hypnotised to be the star of the show'.

The 28th provides a platform for Javier Jarquin: Card Ninja at 7:30pm (£7) featuring stand up comedy and dazzling card feats. That's happening upstairs, while downstairs, at 8:30pm there's a Paranormal Ghost Hunt and Clairvoyance demonstration by Angela and Cathy (£10). If that's too much scary stuff, then upstairs at 9pm, Italian mind reader and magician Luca Volpe will be presenting excerpts from his show In My Mind (£6).

The 29th will see magic feats `that would fool Penn and Teller' performed by Paul Cavendish in his A Little Magic with a Touch of Hutzpah show at 7:30pm (£5), while a Victorian style Séance kicks off at 9pm - `what's real, what's not – you decide' (£5).

On the 30th at 7:30pm upstairs, psychic comedian Peter Antoniou gives mind reading demonstrations (£7), while downstairs at the same time, the title of this show kind of says it all… The Voodoo Mick Psychic and Magick Show (£5). And upstairs at 9pm is a performance by John Lenahan, who's original claim to fame was to become the first person in 85 years to be expelled from the Magic Circle after a BBC performance of How Do They Do That? (£10/£7).

The 31st kicks off in the afternoon with Confessions of a Hypnotist – The Inside Secrets of Hypnotherapy, three hours of masterclass training in all things hypnotism by Jonathan Royle (2pm, £10). At the same time upstairs, classical magician David Paul will present his Lost Secrets of Forgotten Magic show (£6).

At 4pm, Rob Chapman, Obeah Man, presents a journey into the world of magic `where mystery still exists' and `messages are retrieved from the astral planes' (£6). At 7:30pm there's Midweek Magic on a Saturday Night with magic Scotsmen Douglas Cameron and Liam McLaughlin (£10/£7), while downstairs at the same time is Mind Jam with Jay Adkins, mixing comedy and mentalism (£5).

Still on the 31st, at 9pm is Fay Presto, billed as Britain's top female magician (£10/£7), while at 10:30pm Paul Voodini presents How Psychic Are You? (£5). And if you're not completely weirded out, the final day of Fest on April 1st sees medium Karen Erison at 4pm (£5), Kevin Cunliffe goes Inside Your Mind at 6pm (£6), comedy magician Steve Price presents Razor Sharp Twit at 7:30pm (£6) and the Fest finishes with Comedy and Conjuring from Mark James upstairs at 9pm (£6)…

It's going to be one freaky week in Salford!
