Great Yarmouth Magician at the IBM
In September 2012, I worked as a Great Yarmouth Magician. I attended the International Brotherhood of Magicians Convention, which was held in Great Yarmouth. I was booked to host the opening evening show, described as Cabaret. Night. It was to take place in the Britannia Theatre, which is situated on the far end of the Pier.
Magician audiences are notoriously difficult to please and given that it was so early in the convention I expected it to be a tough gig. Although I have got better reactions from the public it turned out to great fun and I was glad of the congratulations I was offered when it was all over.
I have performed at the International Brotherhood of Magicians several times and participated in their competitions close up and stage. I won the International Brotherhood of Magicians Championship in 2005 and performed as a stage magician in their fringe productions.
“I really enjoyed your performance!”Brian Miller, IBM President
I have performed many times in the area both as a close up and cabaret magician, particularly Ipswich and Norwich and enjoy my time in Norfolk.
Although I worked as a Great Yarmouth Magician, the International Brotherhood of Magicians is a worldwide organisation. The British ring holds its convention every September and is the year’s highlight for many magicians. With lectures from around the globe, competitions and workshops, it is an excellent way for magicians to meet each other and learn.
Traditionally the convention takes place in a seaside city but in 2013 it will be in held in Buxton. Already many magicians have been booked and it promises to be a special occasion.
