John CareyNext Thursday 5 March sees the welcome return of John Carey, internationally respected for his creativity and streamlined approach to sleight of hand magic. His five critically acclaimed DVDs have proven popular with magicians all over the world.

Those who attended John’s previous lecture will know that as well as being an all-round nice guy, his enthusiasm shines through his entertaining performances and clear explanations. I’m sure that everyone will leave the lecture having learned some powerful, practical, commercial magic.

John’s lecture is at The Magick Lounge on Thursday 5 March at 7:30. Doors open at 7:02. Admission is free for Sheffield Circle members, £10 for visiting magicians. Not to be missed!

Sorry to have missed the John Carey lecture here at the Magick Lounge on  7 July. I was on holiday. I hear it was a really good night. The effects with cards and coins were direct and not too finger busting, and his style was warm and friendly.

The next not-to-be-missed event at the Lounge is Roger Curzon‘s Sublimations lecture. Although widely renowned for his skill with cards, over the past few years Roger has been dabbling in the dark side and has developed a love of bizarre magick and mentalism. His VideoBooks Sublimations, Theomancy and Pentalism have been widely and favourably reviewed.

Roger is a very creative thinker (his Curzon Envelope has become a much-honoured classic!) so this will be an educational, entertaining, and memorable evening. Thursday 4 August at 7.30, but a ghostly midnight in our minds. Admission £10, but free for Sheffield Circle members in good standing.
