Steve Gore Lecture -  North Western Society of Magicians

Steve Gore, known to readers for organising lecture tours, will present his own lecture at various clubs throughout 2014. the lecture will include lots of his original effects such as ‘Trick Photography’, which MagicWeek called “Close-up Trick of the Year” YouTube and “Visions from Vegas”, an ingenious mentalism effect YouTube. Everyone who has seen and purchased this effect has said that they haven't seen a book test, or indeed any effect, using this method. There are effects for Mentalism, Stage, Stand up, Close up and kids too, so there’s something for everyone. The majority of his effects are also easy to master, allowing you to focus on the presentation. “We would certainly recommend him unreservedly to any society looking for an entertaining and totally original session.” Brian Lead, Modern Mystic League. “It was professional in every respect from dress to the presentation of the effects whether they be close-up, stage or children’s magic.” Liz Warlock, British Magical Society.

The Festival of Magic - London

Jim Steinmeyer will be lecturing both during the Festival of Magic and at the International Magic Convention in London, in November. Jim is responsible for popular illusions featured by professional magicians around the world, and special effects in theatrical shows from Broadway to Las Vegas. Through his designs and his writing on historical magic, he's been credited with creating the "defining illusions in contemporary magic", deceptions featured by Doug Henning, David Copperfield, Siegfried & Roy, Harry Blackstone, Orson Welles, The Pendragons, Lance Burton, Mark Kalin & Jinger and many others. But his work is not only confined to illusions. He has created unique effects both for the stage performer and close-up worker. His lectures truly are ones that have something for everyone. His historical knowledge has been spotlighted both in his presentations at The Magic History Conference in LA and in his books, including Hiding The Elephant and Glorious Deception. The Convention will be held from November 14th -16th at The Mermaid Conference Centre in central London, and The Festival of Magic will be held from November 10th -14th at The Bridewell Theatre just off Fleet Street in London. The Festival consists of separately themed days where the stars of the Convention have a chance to speak at more length and detail, on their particular niche subjects. This year the day themes are:

Monday November 10th - Mentalism Day with Morgan And West, Joseph Barry, Master Payne & Tony Sagittarius.
Tuesday November 11th - Card Magic Day with Jon Armstrong, Joseph Barry, Michael, Vincent, Will Houstoun & Master Payne.
Wednesday November 12th - Magic History Day with Jim Steinmeyer, Mike Caveney, Pete Lamont & Master Payne Ian Keable.
Thursday November 13th - Stage and Screen Magic Day with Jonathan Pendragon, Jim Steinmeyer, Mike Caveney, Frankie Glass, Tina Lenert, Richard Wiseman, Jon Armstrong & Master Payne.

International Magic Convention - London

Jonathan Pendragon will present his one man show on the Friday night of the International Magic Convention in London on November 14th. The convention organisers write: Not only will Jonathan be performing, but he will also be lecturing both at the main Convention and at the Festival of Magic in the week leading up to the Convention, in a special 'Stage Magic and Illusion Day'.

 

With three Presidential Galas in Washington D.C., performances for the Queen of England, the Prince of Wales and the Royal Family of Monaco under his belt, it is no surprise that he is the youngest performer to ever receive a Performing Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts (the governing body of the Magic Castle). Considered by many as the Master of Grand Illusion Jonathan redefined the art of illusion with a dramatic new style, “Physical Grand Illusion.” This style of Illusion put the emphasis on the physical performance instead of the prop. At a time when magician after magician presented larger and larger illusions on television, some of which were elaborate camera tricks, Jonathan wowed international audiences with illusions based on years of physical training, including dance, gymnastics, and martial arts. He created The Pendragons, an illusion team who were as spectacular in their appearance and movement as anything they presented. Metamorphosis, their most famous illusion, involved a split-second transposition that would have fooled Houdini (the illusion’s inventor), according to the 2005 50th Anniversary Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

 

This is an unprecedented chance to see and hear Jonathan talk about some of the groundbreaking illusions he has created and what it takes to create performances that have been seen in at least 14 prime time network television specials in the United States, and on television in approximately 50 countries around the world. As previously announced on MagicWeek, due to limited seating at The Bridewell Theatre, tickets for the Friday night Convention events are now only available as part of a full registration for the whole Convention and registration prices are being kept the same as last year for all events, if you book before March 2nd. This is a great opportunity to enjoy performances and lectures by Tom Mullica, Jonathan Pendragon and many more star names still to be released at a truly affordable rate. To register visit www.internationalmagic.com.

He has amazed both laymen and magicians with his devious mind, producing miracles with cards, silks and coins, all with his own particular twist. If you have already attended one of his previous lectures you'll know why he has achieved such success. If you have never seen him lecturing before, you are invited to peek into his original world of magic. From clever uses of gaffes, to effects with nothing other than a borrowed deck of cards, Henry’s approach to magic is something not to miss.
