25th of September – Fritz Alkemade Lecture

// September 13th, 2018 // Comments Off on 25th of September – Fritz Alkemade Lecture // Uncategorized

Fritz has performed at the Magic Castle and is one of the busiest working magicians in the Netherlands.

Yes, the country that gave us magicians such as Fred Kaps, Richard Ross, and Tommy Wonder. And now Fritz will share with you how he astonishes his audiences.

What is the lecture about? Two hours of magic that comes straight out Fritz’ professional repertoire. It’s not a lecture; it’s an interactive event, where there is room for discussion on philosophy, impromptu magic, card and coin magic, close and stand up, marketing, etc.

Doors: 6:30 pm

Lecture start: 7:00 pm

Price: £12 (members free)

Location: Davenports Magic Shop www.davenportsmagic.co.uk.

10th of July – Ron Shimmel’s “Pocket Trick Drive”

// July 3rd, 2018 // Comments Off on 10th of July – Ron Shimmel’s “Pocket Trick Drive” // Uncategorized

So we’ve got this fun evening coming up. Sort of a weird mixture between speed-dating and magic. Each performer performs one trick all evening, but moves from table to table, along with the other performers. They get judged and have the chance of winning a trophy as well as £25.

Doors open: 6:30pm

Competition start: 7:30pm

(You have to be a member to compete)

 

See you all there!

Hello everyone!

The next meeting we’ve got coming up is “From Under Bob’s Sink (or possibly his garage)”.

What this is, is Bob bringing lots of cra… stuff… I mean, stuff. And our job is to make up some magical things using these things. These are not magic props, just regular household stuff. Then we come up with tricks. Simple.

Doors: 6:30

Meeting start: 7:30

 

Hope to see you all there!

22nd of May – Pick a Plot

// May 15th, 2018 // Comments Off on 22nd of May – Pick a Plot // Uncategorized

This is a night to stimulate your creativity 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 a theme for the effect, perhaps the royal wedding and come up with an effect using some basic props that are provided.

Doors open: 6:30pm

 

Hope to see lots of you there!

All the best,

Daniel
