10th of March – Relaunch

// February 23rd, 2020 // Comments Off on 10th of March – Relaunch // Uncategorized

After a brief hiatus, we’re starting up again. This time, sadly no longer in Davenport’s Magic Studio, as that no longer exists.

We are meeting in a temporary location in St. Andrews Church. Short St, South Bank, London SE1 8LJ. In a third floor meeting room.

So we’re just getting the band back together again, share some magic, and probably discuss future matters as well.

From 6:30

Hope to see you all there!

All the best,
Dan

Hey everyone!

This meeting is just a general post festivities meet up. So come along, show off what you got for Xmas (magic related, we don’t need to see your socks), or just catch up with friends.

All the best,

Dans

26th of November – Jamie Daws Lecture

// November 19th, 2019 // Comments Off on 26th of November – Jamie Daws Lecture // Uncategorized

His first lecture was so awesome, we asked him back to share more of his secrets. You don’t want to miss this!

For over 10 years he has been releasing killer magic effects to the community. (some of them have quite literally been about killers!) With hit effects such as ‘Scared’, ‘GatheRing’ and ‘Phantasm’. And his prolific ‘Dark Series’ consisting of ‘Scream’, ‘The Deceased’,’ and ‘He’s Not Here’, he has established himself as an innovative and sometimes quite odd creator!

In this unique lecture for the London Society of Magicians, Jamie is revealing some of his latest creations! From Rubik’s Cube Mentalism for stage and sharing for the first time his ‘Wonderland Booktest’, to explaining his handlings for PK Touches and sharing his favourite routine with his ‘Vito’ switching envelope!

Of course, there may be a few new darker effects in there too… So we will see you on Tuesday 26th November at Davenports Magic!

Doors open at: 6:30 pm
Lecture starts at: 7:00 pm

Admission: £10
