His creativity, approach and presentational style, have all earned him critical acclaim amongst magic’s inner circle. Within the community, Ollie is perhaps best well known for his YouTube videos, which have gained him worldwide praise for his original and hard-hitting effects.

Ollie’s lecture promises to feature a diverse range of material and ideas from throughout his career so far as well as some exclusives.

27th of June – From Under Bob’s Sink

// June 15th, 2017 // Comments Off on 27th of June – From Under Bob’s Sink // Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

At this meeting it’s time to get the creative juices flowing. Bob will bring a bunch of stuff, not magic stuff, but rather everyday household items (from under his sink, literally) and the object for the members is to come up with tricks using said items. No idea is too stupid, as we’ve seen repeatedly.

So come along, enjoy some “interesting” magic and good company!

All the best,

Dan
