Sheffield Street Magic Festival


A few of the photographs I took during the Sheffield Street Magic Festival on 1-2 November 2014.

I’m pleased to say that we’ve now had payment for this and are able to pay participants. Shop regulars should have received their pittance fee; if you’ve not had yours, call in or give me a ring. This should be a complete list. If your name isn’t on, contact me immediately.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who performed or helped in any way. I hope you enjoyed your involvement and feel that the Festival helped raise the profile of magic in Sheffield.

The 2014 event was much bigger than 2013, spread over two days and with two evening shows and two ‘junior magician workshops’ (despite the organisation  fee being the same!). I’d love to get your feedback and hear your ideas for improvement if we go for a 2016 Festival. Don’t hesitate to comment below, or email me. Thanks.

Spooky TrucksTickets are now available for the Spooky Magic Evening, which will include a Theatrical Seance. This unique event will be held in The Minstrel’s Chambers in the Town Hall at 6:45 on Saturday 1st of November. Doors will creak slowly open at 6:30.

We’ve also got some rather haunting posters. Let me know if you can display one for us. Once again they’re available in A3 and A4. If you have a printer we can email you one as a pdf, or you can collect from Magick (when you’re picking up your tickets for the Saturday and Sunday shows…).

Appearing are Ashton Carter, Roger Curzon, John Blackwood plus that world-famous special guest, TBA. Tickets are £8. This presentation is designed for over 16’s only. Due to the nature of the performances latecomers may be refused entry.

Tickets can be obtained direct from Magick, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield, S2 5TG. Or by ringing us during opening hours (11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day except Thursdays and Sundays). You can pay by cash, Paypal or any major debit or credit card.

Please note that this is a traditional parlour style performance and is limited to 50 spectators only. First come…
