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.
Yes – it's our annual Mentor's Day where your friendly mentors do all the teaching.
The first workshop will feature Dominic Anstey. He has been a member for some years now but will shortly be leaving membership as he becomes 18. He is going to be teaching some fairly simple and some more advanced card manipulation.
For our second classic workshop, we are delighted that Tom Elderfield has agreed to come along and teach you. He won our annual close-up competition at J-Day last month and has just returned from Las Vegas where he was filming a DVD of his magic for Murphy's. He, too, will shortly be leaving us as he is about to become 18 and he is teaching you some non-card close-up magic to show all your friends.
And our third mentor who is teaching you is Callum McClure who those of you who came to our hugely successful J-Day last month will remember him being awarded the Member Of The Year award for his work and high profile at Workshops as well as winning the brand new Fox Award for technical ability. He is giving an in-depth look at the close-up magic classic Triumph card trick.
