The Young Magicians Club is a youth initiative of The Magic Circle, the world's premier magical society. Formed in 1996, the mission of the club is to promote the performance of magic by the young people of today (aged between 10 and 18) and encourage them in their chosen art form so that they can grow into the fine magicians of tomorrow.

To do this The Magic Circle uses its vast knowledge and experience to instruct, encourage and entertain the members of The Young Magicians Club.

Registration is now open for the May workshop and once again, we are very excited about this month’s sessions!:  


We know that Alexander Crawford always goes down well when he presents workshops and he is with us once again – this time giving you a mentalism workshop.  Many of you love mentalism and love the type of act that Derren Brown does.  Alexander’s workshop will be based around an important principle: Annemann’s 4th Dimensional Telepathy.  Learn the principle and put on your own presentation for a fabulous routine.  Alexander will also show you some other mentalism, too.  


It was obvious at this year’s Young Magician of the Year competition that we have some excellent magicians in the YMC but that some stage direction is lacking.  We will be looking at some of the basics in our workshops and have invited another YMC favourite James Fortune back this month.  We last saw him a year ago giving a masterclass on cutting an assistant in half with his unique style of presentation.  As well as being a magician, James is an accomplished theatre director with a specialism in musicals and You Are The Star is going to be a great workshop putting you centre stage. 

We are delighted to welcome back Andy Smith from Alakazam as our card expert this month. He will do something for all abilities – a self-working card trick, one requiring intermediate  level skills and advanced level routine.  Andy was popular when he came and did a coin session so we know you will be thrilled at what he has for you this time! 

Along with the usual morning competitions, this looks to be yet another great workshop. 

All members should have received the email inviting them to register along with the secret reference code.  Don't delay - book for another fantastic day.

-  Date: Saturday 16th May 2015

-  Time: 11 am - 4 pm


-  Cost: £8.00 payable on the day (those with the right money are normally admitted before those who require change!)

There is also an evening Ali Bongo Saturday Show with close-up and stage magic for only £10.  You don’t have to come to the workshop to come to the show – but you must be a member (or a friend of a member) of YMC.  Details of how to reserve tickets for this show were also in your email.

What a great Young Magician of the Year 2015 Competition on Sunday 29th March! Six members of YMC competing - all deserving huge congratulations. Well done to winner Leah Devine and joint second place winners Callum McClure and David Hardman who were both brilliant. No one let themselves down. A really good competition - and well compered by ex-YMC star Ben Hart.
