12th of May – Magic Auction

// May 8th, 2015 // Comments Off on 12th of May – Magic Auction // Uncategorized

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

10th Feb – Magic Parcels

// February 9th, 2015 // Comments Off on 10th Feb – Magic Parcels // Uncategorized

The theme for this night is “Magic Parcels”. Basically what it means is: bring along a trick without the instructions. Then we will split up into groups and be handed on of the mysterious parcels, then we have to figure out either what the trick is, or do something different with the given props, and perform that for the rest of the members.

This night will usually ensure some good laughs at the attempts at figuring out just what to do with the props.

Hope to see you all there!
