Next Star Lecture: Mark Leveridge: E-Club Pro - Live

06 Sep 2017

Mark Leveridge is a full time professional magician, dealer and author with a wide performing experience gained over many years as an entertainer. He is well known as an author, inventor and lecturer on close-up, children's and mental magic, his creations being used by magicians from all over the world. He has appeared at the IBM, SAM (twice), the 4Fs and Abbott's conventions, and has presented his lectures at nearly every society in the UK, as well as at major events including the IBM, Blackpool and Macmillan London conventions.

Mark presents selected elements from E-Club Pro, his online club and information resource. During the evening he will perform and fully explain a selection of routines and ideas extracted from the 'Vintage Vault' and 'Teach-In' sections of the E-Club Pro website pages. There will be magic for close-up shows, walkabout work, stand-up and mentalism, and everything shown will be practical and within the skill range of everyone except the total beginner. He will also share a couple of the hilarious tales from the 'It Could Only Happen Live' section which show that even full-time pros have moments of totally unexpected surprise!

E-Club Pro - Live! is a really entertaining and enjoyable evening full of magic to learn and entertain. The included material is normally reserved for online viewing only by paid up members of the Club itself, so this is a great chance to experience some of the Club's contents live in our clubroom.

Stand-up Competition

No sitting down on the job here.  Are you a stand-up kind of person?  Happy to work on your feet? Then, tonight is for you.  Hopefully you’ve spent the summer honing your 10-minute stand-up act into an award-winning frenzy of magical entertainment.  You’ve got to be in it to in it (I shamelessly stole that!), so let’s hope there are lots of entries looking to walk off with the trophy.

Three Lecturettes

Back for its third appearance in as many years is the always popular night when three (or more – c’mon, folks, you know you want to) of our members each gives us a mini lecture on a topic of their choosing.  Always fun, always varied.
