Paul contemplates his fee for his Sheffield lecture.

Paul contemplates his fee for his Sheffield lecture.

Paul Hallas will be lecturing at The Lounge on Thursday the 7 March. Paul blends magic and mentalism and the lecture is sure to have something for everyone. Here’s a comment from  Marc DeSouza:

Paul Hallas’ lecture is a wonderful blend of magic and mentalism for the close-up and stand-up magician. There are no pipe dreams here; the material has been taken from Paul’s own working repertoire. You will learn strong commercial magic for the working performer… magic you can and will use. On top of that is Paul’s engaging personality and clear teaching style. All in all, a great evening of magical education and entertainment.

And if that doesn’t persuade you to get yourself down here, here’s what Harry Murphy said on the Magic Café following Paul’s lecture at the Funarama Magic Convention in Maryland, USA:

Then there was my favorite lecture. It was given late at night by the Café’s own Paul Hallas. Paul has relocated to the USA from the UK and essentially starting over as a performer. His lecture was full of killer, commercial, and useful stuff. I have never seen Mr Hallas perform before and really liked his laid back and seemingly leisurely performance style. I strongly believe that Mr Hallas would enhance any club’s function and any convention’s program. His lecture and stage performance are top shelf!

Doors open at 7:03 for a 7:30 p.m. start. Admission is free to Sheffield Circle members and £10 for guests and visiting magicians.
