Why joining The Magic Circle is worth it
Over 1,500 men and women around the world enjoy the benefits of being a member of the world’s most famous magic society. Not all are professionals – hobbyists and students of magic are equally welcome.
What magician has not been asked whether they are a member of The Magic Circle? To some, being able to say that they really are a member, put the letters MMC after their name and use a personal @themagiccircle.co.uk email address is enough.
But the benefits go much further than that whether you live in or near London, further afield or outside the UK. Many events and lectures are streamed live, members have their own exclusive Facebook page, an exclusive magazine – and there is The Magic Circle’s very own TV programme.
The London headquarters
The fabulous purpose-built building is open to members on regular club nights, nearly every Monday. With its intimate 162 seat theatre, clubroom and bar, its museum and its library, and the Devant Room lecture and performance space, it really is a centre for the magic arts – and fun. On club nights, usually a Monday, members meet, socialise and session, learn from a lecture from a top magician – or just hang out and enjoy the building which is packed to the brim with memorabilia and one of the world’s best collections of magic posters. People may think it’s a secret society but you’ll be amazed how generous members are with their time and expertise. And when the magic stars are in town they often pop by. Imagine David Williamson asking you to show him what you’re working on. No pressure!
