The headquarters

18 January 2022

The Centre for the Magic Arts, the first permanent headquarters of The Magic Circle, opened its blue doors in June 1998, the Society’s eighteenth home since its founding in 1905. The transformation of what was a dilapidated Victorian warehouse into a custom-built vibrant home of magic took almost 14 months and cost £2.1 million. The interior proclaims the nature of the attraction from every wall, nook and crannied recess. It was funded by National Lottery money, donations big and small and fund-raising events.
