The Magic Circle is celebrating the election of its first woman President who won the role this week at its Annual General Meeting.
For the first time in its history, a woman was nominated for the role and won the position with a resounding majority.  The society also elected Katherine Rhodes, its Secretary last year, as its new Vice-President.

Ms Swann, who is a professional magician: “Ever since I got into magic aged five, The Magic Circle has had a big impact on my life. I am so proud and honoured to be elected as President, and look forward to representing all of our Members around the world. Magic is a wonderful performance art and our members come from all sorts of backgrounds. We have amateur as well as professional members and I hope The Magic Circle can continue to support all of them, and I hope that I can encourage more women to become magicians too”

The Magic Circle has it headquarters in Central London and as well as meetings for its Members, has a museum, theatre and performance spaces welcoming members of the public to its many events.
