25th of June – Pick-A-Plot (again)

// June 19th, 2019 // Comments Off on 25th of June – Pick-A-Plot (again) // Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

So last time we couldn’t do this meeting, due to no one being able to open the shop etc. So we’ll try again:

This next meeting is a fun night to get the creative juices flowing and to maybe learn a new thing or two.

The idea is to randomly pick a magical effect, such as a vanish, or transformation, and then pick random props (which are provided.) and then create an effect. It will all be very relaxed, so don’t get nervous about being put on the spot or anything.

 

Doors open: 6:30pm

Meeting Start: 7:30

 

And congratulations, again, to Leo for winning the Card Competition! (In case you hadn’t seen it on the Facebook page)

Hope to see lots of you there!

All the best,

Daniel

14th of May – Magic Auction a.k.a. “Ray’s Night”

// April 29th, 2019 // Comments Off on 14th of May – Magic Auction a.k.a. “Ray’s Night” // Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

It’s the Auction, or Ray’s Night, as we affectionately call it. So please come down and bag a bargain, or sell some unwanted stuff.
If you want to sell something please bring a list of what you’re selling, in triplicate. This makes everything a lot easier for us to run the evening.
Doors open at 6:30 as usual, and the auction will start from 7:00. If you have stuff to sell, you’re more than welcome to come and drop it off in the shop earlier in the day.
All the best,
Daniel

Look forward to seeing you all there!
