As Monday 12 April sees a welcome relaxation of lockdown restrictions we’re taking another look at how this might affect our lovely customers, and the rest of them too.

So, from tomorrow we’ll be open for you to call in or to make a collection during our normal opening hours.

To maintain social distancing, no more than four customers at a time, please.

We’re also going to reinstate our Saturday Mini-Sessions of up to four people. This would allow us to maintain appropriate distancing… for example, one on each end of the large settee, one on the smaller settee and one on a chair in front of (but not too close to) the second-hand book shelves.

Again, while appropriate safeguards need to be in place we’ll operate a booking system. You can ring, email or post on our Facebook page, where availability will be updated.

To widen availability, there’ll be time slots: an early slot from 11:00 until 14:00, and a later slot from 14:15 until 17:15. This allows up to three hours to show a new trick, check out our SPECIAL SALES BARGAIN LISTS, or buy a book or three. And it gives us 15 minutes to wipe down surfaces in between.

If necessary, should customers flood in (?) sessioners may be asked to relocate to the ‘Bizarre Room’.

We look forward to seeing your eager, smiling faces and open wallets.

If you’ve ordered items to collect, they’ll be waiting for you

With best wishes to all from June, Julie and Russell.

A few years ago Jared Manley’s Bolted was one of our best-sellers. Sadly, it’s not been available for a while. That’s just changed. We received a a new supply a few days ago. Here’s a short video of Jared performing his amazing effect during one of our (pre-covid) Saturday Sessions at The Magick Lounge.

Having a card appear in an impossible location is a staple in magic. The problem that every magician struggles with is, if the object is signed then the location can’t be “impossible”. But if the location is truly impossible, then the object can’t be signed. Now there’s a solution — Bolted!

Bolted allows you to take a randomly signed card, make it disappear, and with no hesitation pull out a locked case with that very same signed card inside. There are many different ways to reveal Bolted, including from a pouch, a tuck case, and even your back pocket.

No forcing
No duplicates
Use it with business cards and predictions
Includes a sleight-free handling for absolute beginners

Bolted contains multiple routines geared towards every skill level. Whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned professional, perform the routine that works best for you. This is the perfect way to finish any signed card routine, and the best part? You can hand it out immediately afterward, so there is no doubt their signed card is Bolted inside.

Shatters the limits of what’s possible and leave your spectators with a miracle that they can’t explain, with Jared Manley’s Bolted. Available from Magick at £49 plus postage. Or call and pick yours up soon. Order from us and you get a free copy of the original DVD as well as the ubiquitous instructional download!
