South Tyneside International Magic Festival

Steve Gore has asked if we can share this – it looks like a great lineup:

The South Tyneside International Magic Festival is a small/medium convention with 150 maximum registrants so you really get chance to see up close and mingle with the stars of the convention. It starts on Friday 16th to Sunday 18th March 2018, with an extra public show on Thursday 15th March. There are also the possibility of a few workshops if people are interested.

Alphabetically here are the stars…

North Wales Magic Circle – 75 Years Old Today

Today, 4th November 2017, is the 75th Anniversary of the formation of the North Wales Magic Circle at the Gladstone Hotel in Rhyl.

Present were –
Wilf Leyland (President)
John Leckie (Secretary)
Alin Lovatt (Treasurer)
W. A. Carr (Griffin Editor) Vol 1 No 1 published in May 1943
Sam Hughes, Prof. Jenson, Will Lloyd Lawrence, W.R.Watkins and Sid Woods.

From the brainchild of John Leckie who decided to form a magic society as there wasn’t one locally. John attended a function where Sid Woods was performing and who enthusiastically agreed. Sid knew of another magician somewhere ‘eastward along the Coast’, and wrote to ‘Mr. Magician, Mostyn, Flintshire’. Two weeks later, a letter from Sam Hughes of Flint heralded a meeting of the three of them in The Bedford Cafe, Rhyl, leading to the inaugural meeting above.

Information taken from ‘A Brief History’ by Arthur G. Booker, more of which can be found on our website.
