Alan Shaxon MIMCIt is with great sadness and regret that I have to inform Members that our former President, Alan Shaxon MIMC, passed away in the early hours of this morning.

Alan will be remembered for his warmth, integrity and above all, his inspirational professionalism.

I am sure all Members of The Society will join me and the Council of The Magic Circle in sending our deepest sympathy and affection to his wife Anne and his family.

Jack Delvin MIMC
President of The Magic Circle


The funeral for Alan Shaxon, MIMC, will take place at 1:15 pm on Tuesday 13 November at St Mary's, Church Street, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, KT12 2QS.

Following the service, there will be a private crematorium committal, but friends are invited to make their way to the reception which will be held at Burhill Golf Club, Burwood Road, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, KT12 4BX

It is requested that there only be family flowers (although The Magic Circle will be sending a floral tribute on behalf of Alan's 'Circle Family'), but it is Anne's wish that anyone wanting to make a charitable donation in Alan's memory, do so to The Maskelyne Endowment Fund of which Alan was a trustee and the income of which "may be applied to provide monies for grants and bursaries to or for the benefit of Members of the Society in connection with projects or activities which advance the art of magic."

Donations can be sent to The Maskelyne Endowment Fund, The Magic Circle, 12 Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HD
