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

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,
