28th of July – Ravi Mayar Lecture

// July 24th, 2015 // Comments Off on 28th of July – Ravi Mayar Lecture // Uncategorized

London Society of Magicians proudly presents a lecture by Ravi Mayar. A full-time professional magician, pickpocket, hypnotist, creator and lecturer. Ravi was born in England, grew up in Montreal, Canada, and now lives permanently in London.

Ravi’s 2015 “No Card Tricks” lecture will be based on his latest Blackpool 2015 release “Storyteller” as well as his Collision DVD set. Ravi is known for creating organic magic with everyday items that people can relate to. Last year he released “The Mayar Approach” Hypnosis Workshop to the public. He will be discussing his approach, touching on his use of physical controls, language, and the intangible principles he has created for his mix and mingle hypnosis.

Ravi will also be introducing his style of pickpocketing, discussing confidence v character, proximity of space and attention management.

 

Meeting Starts at 19:00

Hello all,

On the next meeting we got this rather curiously named evening. What it entails is creating some magic with some regular items as provided by Bob. These are not magic props, but regular items that he’s found and will be bringing along.

Come and join us for some fun!

 

All the best,

Dan & Dan

Congratulations to Ryan!

Big thank you to all the competitors for participating in the competition. It was a good night, and I thought the standard was pretty high this year.

However, there was only one winner and that was Ryan, with Joe being a close second. Congratulations to you both!

 

All the best,

Daniel

Hi all,

On Tuesday we have our annual Magic Auction, or more affectionately called Ray’s Night. This is an opportunity to sell some of your unwanted stuff. Just because it doesn’t suit you, doesn’t mean somebody else won’t find it useful. So bring your stuff, and come along, and perhaps walk home with something new!

All the best,

Dan and Dan
