11th of October – Mark Elsdon Lecture

// October 4th, 2016 // Comments Off on 11th of October – Mark Elsdon Lecture // Uncategorized

On this evening we have Mark Elsdon coming to lecture at our club. In his own words:


Mark Elsdon – 2016/2017 Lecture

The lecture is titled ‘Miracles Take A Little Longer’ and is comprised of Mark teaching original magic and mentalism, plus the techniques and methods he uses behind the scenes to achieve maximum impact and really affect people with his performances. The content includes:

Walkaround card and coin magic – practical, commercial material that can be performed under any conditions.

Close-up mentalism – for those times when you want your performance to have more resonance and leave a lasting impression on people.

Stand-up mentalism that is short on process and long on entertainment. Focussing on the interaction with the audience, this time-tested material is ready to go straight into your act.

A whole section on his critically-acclaimed ‘Conversation As Mentalism’ material, which includes killer mentalism effects that you can perform anytime, anyplace and without any props! These effects and more have been designed with one outcome in mind – to amaze whoever you are talking to without the aid of any gadgets, gizmos or gimmicks.

Finally, there is a performance-only of Mark’s all-time favourite creation: Limelight – the incredible routine which makes an absolute star of the spectator. This is a must-see performance!

 PLEASE NOTE: Whilst there is some very minimal crossover with Mark’s Penguin or Murphy’s lectures (the couple of tricks everyone simply MUST see live!) this lecture features a TON of new material, plus full explanations of several of Mark’s marketed effects.



Doors open at: 6:30pm

Lecture starts at: 7:00pm

Free for members, £12 for non-members


See you all there!

28th of June – From Under Bob’s Sink

// June 17th, 2016 // Comments Off on 28th of June – From Under Bob’s Sink // Uncategorized

This evening is usually a lot of fun. Bob will bring with him an assortment of “stuff”, not magic stuff, mind you, but a lot of different household “stuff” (crap). Then we all try to come up with tricks using these items.

Come and bring your creative hat, or just come and watch some of the other members come up with stuff.

Have a laugh and enjoy some (possibly) good magic!

Congratulations to Daniel Stanbridge, who won the card competition 2016!

And thank you to all the contestants, it was a good competition, as I’m sure we can all agree.
