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.

Peter Antoniou, Russ Appleby, John Archer, Ian Baker, Adam Bell, Steve Brownley, Ashton Carter, Chris Clarke, Nathan Clarke, Connor, Roger Curzon, Darren Dudley, David, Steve Faulkner, Craig Frith, Julie Gascoyne, Ian Hallworth, Peter Hammond, Ian Henshaw, Toby Hudson, Tom Hudson, Ryan Jackson, Ben Jones, Dominic Lawrenson, Nathan Lindley, Looch, Tom Magick, Jared Manley, John Martin, Jordan Maycock, Callum Morris, Gareth Neale, Vincent O’Brien, Gordon Pemberton, June Savory, Ben Smithies, Jake Smithies, Tim Smithies, Wiz Spencer, Andy Taylor, Peter Wall, Tony Wilkinson.

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.

The genial Steve Faulkner is hosting the show and we have a truly outstanding bill for you: John Archer, Peter Antoniou, Looch, Jared Manley, and Tim Smithies. (And I’ll be behind the scenes stage-managing for this lot; should be fun…!)

In fact it’s such a great bill that for a moment there I was tempted to use the adjective ‘awesome’. Phew.

Please tell all your friends, family, lovers, co-workers, fellow Facebookers, gym members, Twitterers, acquaintances, enemies and that guy in the pub you nod to on Thursdays, tickets can be obtained now from Magick, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield, S2 5TG.

Don’t miss the bus… it’ll be magic!

Looch at the LoungeThere was a full house for last Thursday’s lecture by Looch at the Magick Lounge. His wide experience in presenting entertaining mentalism was obvious to all those present. It was a great, educational and fun night!

We’re pleased to say that Looch will be one of the featured performers at the Sheffield Street Magic Festival on Saturday 31 August. Not to be missed!

LoochMind Reader and Psychological Magician Looch has become one of the most sought-after acts in the UK. His unique skills combined, with his humour and professionalism have seen him booked for a vast array of events, including weddings, parties and corporate events. He has also made a name for himself as an originator of exciting new ideas in mentalism.

We are pleased to say that Looch will be lecturing here at the Lounge on Thursday 1 August. Admission is £10, but free to paid-up members of the Sheffield Circle of Magicians. Doors open at 7.07 p.m., and the event starts at 7.30 at The Magick Lounge, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield S2 5TG. Don’t miss it.
