Next Star Lecture: Morgan and West: Coding in the Pub

03 May 2017

Magicians, time-travellers and all-round spiffing chaps, Mr Rhys Morgan and Mr Robert West present a lecture in two parts.  ‘Coding in the Pub’ teaches quick, easy, practical and very fooling tricks for use out and about (and on stage if you so wish) utilising two people. Even though most performers don't have a performing partner, the lecture goes down extremely well, giving people ideas to take and do in the real world. The lecture also covers other mentalism tricks, both for two-person and solo performers.

This is followed by a discussion about character. Morgan and West is a character act and always has been. Rhys and Rob talk extensively about how to create an authentic character which connects with an audience. This is somewhat different from the usual lecture fare and promises to be a very interesting topic for discussion.

Bring along your unwanted props, books and DVDs for sale, but don’t forget to bring along plenty of cash too.  Don’t forget that as well as being a means to raise funds for your next big purchase and/or a method of refreshing your act with different props, it’s also a shot in the arm for the club’s health, with some of the proceeds passing to the club’s funds.

First Public Showing

A chance to preview that new routine you’ve been working on before unleashing it on the public. Whether it’s cards, coins, mentalism, ropes, escapology, an illusion, a children’s routine or just a new presentation of an old favourite, we’d love to see it and offer feedback and encouragement before you present it to a paying audience.
