Sheffield Circle of Magicians

Meeting Update – 5 January


The first meeting of 2012, and a fantastic turnout. 

“Free and Easy” night began with an impromptu audition from Chris.  Chris performed a series of excellent card tricks and the committee members in attendance were unanimous in their decision to make him a member.  The night continued with a series of effects from members, including a demonstration of X-Ray vision, several haunted decks of cards, a domino prediction, contact ball manipulation and card trickery aplenty.  Effects were punctuated by wide-ranging discussions on Magic on the telly over Christmas, reminisces of conjurers past and lots of hints and tips.  My favorite effect of the night was Craig showing us his “little hand” and how it helps him end one of his coins routine. 

The next event is our Chris Hare Lecture.  This was booked before we moved to one meeting a month so is on Thursday the 19th of January.  It promises to be an excellent night.  Chris is a fantastic performer and having had him demonstrate his “diary trick” on me I will definitely be there in the hope he spills the beans on it (hint hint Chris).

All the best
