Perth 60th Anniversary Day of Magic

0

Perth Magic Circle will be holding a Day of Magic in the Grampian Hotel, Perth on Sunday 23rd May commencing 10.00am. Davenports (The UK’s oldest established magic shop) will be attending and will have a wide selection of magic to tempt us all. Whether it is DVDs, close up, books stage or childrens magic they probably have it so it will be a great opportunity to get some new material.

There are two lecture arranged, one from Roy Davenport and the other from Trevor Lewis…both these will be excellent as each is a master of their craft! To mark the anniversary, Perth City Council have granted a Civic Reception and everyone attending will be invited to this which will precede the Gala Cabaret featuring Colin McLeod, who scored heavily at last years Edinburgh Fringe, Trevor Lewis and Roy Davenport who will present his Grandfathers famous manipulation act.

There will of course, be bar facilities during the day and snacks/meals will also be available if required. The cost for the entire day is £20.00 (Juniors – under age 16 years – £10.00, accompanied by a responsible adult.)

KirkcaldyMC_samsKirkcaldy Magic Circle has a long and rich history starting with it’s formation in 1942. The club name at the time was The Lang Toon Legerdemaniacs and was one of the founding members of the Scottish Association of Magical Societies.

As reported on the Scottish Association of Magical Societies website, Kirkcaldy Magic Circle has been mothballed due to a recent drop in active membership. Those members who continue to be active in magic have moved across to Perth Magic Circle.
