The Canterbury Magician Lecture at Kent University Keyens College
Canterbury Magicians at Kent University Magic Club.
A lorry broke through the central reservation between junctions 22 and 24 on the M25 closing it in both directions. It took more than four hours to do a two-hour journey. I arrived with half an hour to spare, however, it did not detract from what was a very enjoyable night.
Essentially they are Canterbury Magicians as they meet at Keynes College near the city centre. The rooms are very modern and although a musical was being rehearsed next door it didn’t detract from the evening.
The club has members of all abilities. A few are planning a career as close up or cabaret magicians. Others see it as a hobby or interest to compliment their work at college.
It was a good turnout given that there are deadlines for certain students. They also meet on a Friday night which conflicts with other activities.
The lecture includes close up magic, stage magic, pick pocketing and a little theory on stage craft.
I don’t lecture very much but since winning the Magic Circle Close Up Magician of the Year I have found that clubs and conventions are more interested in me and I have a few booked in for next year.
I received this lovely message from Megan the president of the magic club.
On behalf of the UKC Magic Society, I would like to once again thank-you for coming to lecture for us. All our members really enjoyed it, and I know many of them are already busy practicing some of the things you taught.
I hope the journey home was better than the one getting here!
Thanks again for a wonderful evening,
I do perform as a Kent magician on occasions and it is always nice to be in the area. I was planning on walking around the town before the lecture but maybe another time.
