Northampton Magician Lecture – TJ Shoesmith Entertains

Northampton magician at the local club

Although I work regularly as a Northampton Magician I have never lectured for their thriving magic society, until now.

I have never considered myself to be a magician’s magician! These are performers who particularly appeal to the magic fraternity and often travel the world lecturing and selling their wares. I tend to work in what I would call the real world and don’t tend to mix a great deal with magicians.

Since the children, I don’t attend conventions as much as I used to so it is always nice to meet up with colleagues when I am asked. Northampton proved to be a great experience with many magicians stopping to talk afterwards. I tend to lecture on close up magic and cabaret magic as well as talking about performance skills.

Northampton Magicians Club

The Northampton Magicians’ Club is a vibrant community of illusionists, conjurers, and magic enthusiasts based in Northampton, England. Founded to promote and share the art of magic, the club hosts regular meetings, workshops, and performances, fostering a welcoming environment for both amateur and professional magicians to hone their skills and share their passion. Many members are full-time professionals and members of the Magic Circle.

My Northampton Magician Lecture

Due to the fact that I lecture so rarely, it is not what one would call slick but I think the content is relevant. It is made up of some takes on old tricks but also contains creations of my own. I also look at how to approach a table and get the attention of a crowd. Your magic can be great, but if the guests are not watching it, the booker won’t care. If there is time I throw in a couple of stage magic tricks.

I got this lovely letter from their secretary.

“Thank you on behalf of the club for getting our New Year off to such an excellent start on Tuesday with your really superb lecture.

I know that everybody really enjoyed your fascinating and very professional slant on entertaining the general public. I would guarantee that every member took something away from the evening that they could use!”

Northampton Magicians Secretary

I love to work as a Northampton Magician, and have had many engagements including a wedding at Rushton Hall. Living in Hertfordshire I often make the short trip to perform in and around Northamptonshire so do give me a call, details are on the booking page.
