A human lie detector, a Harry Potter-inspired magic school and the world's top con artist expert have been unveiled as the headlining acts at Edinburgh's first International Magic Festival.

Several top performers and illusionists are set to take the stage during the five-day event, including trickster Paul Wilson, from popular TV show The Real Hustle, who is set to scam audience members before showing them how the tricks are pulled off.

And Drew McAdam – also known as The Interrogator due to his ability to sniff out any lie – will grill those who dare to watch his performance.
