Forth Valley Magic Circle Youtube Channel


youtubeWe’ve created a new Youtube channel for presenting Forth Valley Magic Circle Youtube Videos.

We have started by adding an old video from Blackpool 2008. It is of our current Vice President’s wife Laura being hypnotised while unwinding in the Ruskin Bar. A fantastic weekend and a fantastic video.

We will be adding other videos to this channel including excerpts from our Tricks at the Tryst shows.

Forth Valley Magic Circle Gallery


flickr_logoWe have maintained a picture gallery on this website for quite a few years but thought it would be a good idea to update it. We have so many great pictures from over the past few years we thought it was about time we organised ourselves and put them all in one place.

We have started to store our club pictures on Flickr and we will be transferring more over the next few weeks. You can find a selection on the website on our Gallery page. Alternatively, you can visit our own Flickr Photostream.

If you have any images you think we should add then please email them to me at

Shirley Ray Lecture


Our thanks go to Shirley Ray for an excellent lecture on balloon modeling. Not only did she entertain and provide the ballooners amongst us with some new ideas but provided tips on getting those all important bookings. For those who do not do ballooning, it is always a joy to watch a real expert at work.

Shirley is a former member of Forth Valley Magic Circle and worked under the name of Auntie Rainbow. Shirley Ray is a third generation magician, a versatile and experienced performer. She is also one of the worlds leading balloon figure artists. Shirley Ray is one of the top elite instructors teaching at balloon conventions around the world. She was born in Edinburgh and brought up in the world of magic tricks. Shirley has won a number of prestigious awards, including the Scottish Shield for magic.
