The Young Magicians Club is a youth initiative of The Magic Circle, the world's premier magical society. Formed in 1996, the mission of the club is to promote the performance of magic by the young people of today (aged between 10 and 18) and encourage them in their chosen art form so that they can grow into the fine magicians of tomorrow.

To do this The Magic Circle uses its vast knowledge and experience to instruct, encourage and entertain the members of The Young Magicians Club.

The next YMC meeting is on March 11th and once again we are thrilled at the three Magic Circle magicians we have teaching workshops.

Our card worker this month is Russell Levinson.  At previous workshops he has taught you important sleights and tricks to do with them.  This time he is going to concentrate on the oldest and most classic of card tricks – the Three Card Monte.  This is something that everyone should know about!  Used both as a card trick for entertainment and on the street by con-artists it has stood the test of time over centuries!

We welcome back Martin Cox this month and he is doing some elastic band magic.  With just a few elastic bands (which many close-up magicians wear permanently on their wrists) there is a whole host of tricks and effects that you can perform from Crazy Mans Handcuffs, to linking and unlinking bands and broken and restored.

Our third workshop presenter is our own workshop staff members and secretary of The Magic Circle, Megan Knowles-Bacon.  She is going to be looking at some aspects of stage performance (a lot of which is equally important for close-up) such as timing and applause cues.  Sometimes a good act can be ruined by a lack of understanding of these areas of performance.

All YMC members have received their own email inviting them to register for this exciting workshop.  Numbers are strictly limited so get your application in now!
