Radio is a powerful promotional vehicle for magicians that the magic press have long neglected.

Using audio examples from his personal archive, Ian Fenn AIMC will give members of The Magic Circle a real understanding of the medium that will elevate their magic and turn listeners into clients and live audiences.

Don’t miss it, on Zoom only.

With immense pleasure, we invite you to participate in a one-of-a-kind mentalism and magic workshop presented by Luca Volpe & Renato Cotini. This workshop has been offered for free to all the member of the Magic Circle. In the first part of the workshop, Luca Volpe will share practical and commercial mentalism routines that he has performed all around the world. These routines pack very flat (easy to carry) and play very big (have a strong impact), making them highly engaging for audiences. He will also share his full corporate act, “WORDS,” which he performs at corporate gigs with great success. This act is fully customisable for your audience and is perfect for motivating them! In the second part of the workshop, Renato Cotini will share his commercially successful routines that have fooled many magicians over the years. These routines blend psychological subtleties with simple methods and require no difficult techniques. You will learn to create real miracles using nothing more than a deck of cards. Of course, all the routines can be adapted to any performance by using not only playing cards but also images, drawings, words, and much more. At the end of the workshop you will receive a Free Digital Package offered by Renato and Luca.

Our Very Own ‘Open Mic’ Night!

Try out a trick, get feedback, have fun!

Nathan Earl is once again hosting a ‘Hydra’ evening at the Circle. It’s our version of an ‘Open Mic’ night, it’s great fun and anyone can take part.

Here’s the idea. Suppose you’ve got a new trick, routine or idea you’ve been working on. Come along and try it out in front of your Magic Circle peers. They then give you practical, constructive and supportive feedback.

In other words, it’s a safe, supportive space in which to try out new material, far away from public scrutiny, and see if the Magic Circle hive mind can suggest improvements or help you with any problems you have with the trick.

The whole event is hosted and directed by Nathan, who keeps the mood fun, cordial and constructive. Each performer gets about five minutes of performance time, followed by five minutes of comments and feedback.

This is a tremendously useful opportunity for anyone developing a new trick or routine. It’s also great fun, as anyone who remembers the last one will agree! Back in the day, the great Tony Hanscombe used to host these ‘work in progress’ evenings on a regular basis. Nathan Earl has revived the idea and it could well become a regular feature on the club night calendar.

The last ‘Hydra’ event was held in the Devant Room. This one will take place in the Theatre, so anyone relatively new to stage work can learn about stage and mic technique and about working with a typical stage crew.

(There may be a fish and chips supper later in the evening but this is yet to be confirmed.)

Do come along and support this brilliant event. Obviously, the more people who attend, the greater the range and depth of feedback each performer will receive.

Any Apprentice or current member of the Magic Circle can take part. To book your slot, emailNathan Earl:

Hosted by Marvin Berglas
This very special evening will honour and celebrate the legacy of our former President, David Berglas, MBE.
There can’t be any member of the Magic Circle — or indeed, anyone with an interest in magic — who isn’t aware of David’s tremendous contribution to the arts of magic and mentalism. The two main books celebrating his work, ‘The Mind & Magic Of David Berglas’ and ‘The Berglas Effects’, stand as enduring testaments to his unrivalled ingenuity and his peerless ability to forge new ground in strong, baffling and entertaining magic with a psychological theme.
There will contributions on the night from host Marvin Berglas as well as Andy Nyman, Marc Paul, Richard Wiseman, Paul Kieve, Graham Jolley, Laura London, Michael J Fitch and others. Members of the Berglas family will also be in attendance. You can expect stories, memories and videos honouring David’s remarkable life and talents, as well as live performances of some of his most famous routines.
This is going to be a moving and rather poignant evening. However, it will also be one of respect, admiration and celebration as we remember the life and legacy of this giant of the magic world. Guests are welcome provided you register them in advance in the usual way.
