Magic Club Lecture
Magic Club Lecture (2024 onwards)
I have a variety of lectures you can choose from, that I can present at your magic club. Note these are only for established groups of magicians and are not available for the general public. I am a past President and will be President again of the Manchester Circle of Magicians in 2024. My bio and publicity photos are below the lecture descriptions.
Body Tricks - This is a very interactive based workshop on tricks that use your arms, legs, eyes and sense of balance. It is taught alongside a PowerPoint presentation (I have my own screen and projector) which shows the instructions for each trick. The first half features solo based effect, with the second half focusing on group effects and no-prop mind reading.
Cabaret Magic - This lectures features the various tricks I have created throughout the years which might include:
Cabaret Find the Lady
One Minute Sudoku
Blockbuster Book Test
Linking Hula Hoops
Rubik's Twist Mind-Reading
Jack Spade Story Deck
Tap and Swipe
Anyone with a smartphone will also receive a free magic app I created and they will be able to perform the trick within seconds of being shown. Its amazing - you'll just have to trust me!
Cruise Ship Magic Workshops - For years I have been teaching magic in primary schools and for cubs, brownie and scout groups. I explain all the tricks in those workshops, how they work, why they were chosen, where to purchase the cheap supplies and how to deliver the lesson. On Cruise ships, the workshops are also accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation that includes the instructions on each slide. I will speed-through many of the ten (45-minute) lectures explaining the tricks chosen. I will also touch upon how to get these jobs, how to sell yourself to schools, get work performing on cruise ships and stuff like that. Anyone attending will get access to my Masterclass "How to teach a Magic Workshop" (originally released as a three dvd set in 2015) to watch online.
Stories From the Life of a Magician - I have written two books featuring over 100 funny stories from shows I have performed over the last thirty years. I will regale your group with some of my favourite and you can laugh, cry, be shocked and awed at the various amazing tales. This might include my experience performing on a TV Talent show, how I was involved with a mutiny on a summer holiday camp and when I made three fire-engines turn up in a puff of smoke!
Children's Entertainment 101 - For over 27 years I have been a professional children's magician and in this lecture I explain my banners, performance table, purpose of puppets, colour branding, advertising strategies with leaflets, do's and don't and all the tricks in my current show. This is a real behind the scenes look of a professionals approach to performing for children. Everyone in attendance will also receive a free PDF copy of my book "Everything I Know about being a children's entertainer".
Bar Bets - This is a 1 hour workshop featuring betcha type games where members are challenged to outwit the challenger! The second half will consist of additional magic effects from his Cabaret Magic lecture and performance pieces.
Cost of each lecture is usually £250 for two-hours if local to Manchester. If travelling far, I would have to include petrol costs and accommodation might also be required. I'm also opposed to driving long distances; so if you are on the other side of the country, I might need picking up from a nearby train station. Best thing is to email me and we can see what is possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
