Continuing our semi-regular profile series, we thought it time to mention that a number of our members have teamed up to form Scottish Magic.
A number of our club members were inspired during a recent lecture to develop a more commercial approach to their marketing efforts. You can see the results and follow our progress at the Scottish Magic website.
Just a quick reminder to members that tonight’s meeting will be on mentalism. SAM’s President George Colvan and his wife Janet have kindly agreed to join us. Should be a good one. Goatees not required.
Kevin McMahon is organising an International Magic Festival in Edinburgh this summer running from the 7th – 11th July 2010. It is expected that more than 3,000 people will attend events, ranging from a gala show featuring world-class performers to a “magic school” for youngsters.
