(Open Night) Please bring along as many family and friends as possible. It makes things a lot easier when our members are performing for real people, not just not their fellow magicians.
Tuesday 24th July
Join us in the public bar (downstairs) at The Irish World Heritage Centre for an informal night of tricks, discussion and laughs.
Got a new trick you’d like to share, or a question about a recent lecture or competition routine? Our informal club nights are just as educational and entertaining as our more structured events, and definitely worth showing up for!
The first person to perform “Card on Ceiling” buys the beers!

With Blackpool Magic Convention (the largest annual gathering of magicians in the world) looming on the horizon, there is no meeting this week. If you are going to the BMC, have a great and safe time, look out for fellow members, and enjoy the weekend.
For those not going, keep an eye on our Twitter account for lots of news, photos and much more!

A Tower of Tricks! (or this magic rocks?)
With Blackpool Magic Convention over, and (most) magicians having recovered from 3 days of intense trickery and partying, it’s time to show us what you learnt & bought!
For those who didn’t go to Blackpool, this is a great time to hear all the news, see the latest releases, and perhaps add your ideas and thoughts to magic routines – and why not share your latest tricks, ideas etc.
