'Shaman & Showman' with Jeff McBride and Larry Hass

28th & 29th March

A brand-new two day conference. Jay Fortune writes: I'm pleased to announce 'Shaman & Showman', a brand-new two day conference sponsored by Magicseen happening on March 28th & 29th, 2020 in Blackpool. For the first time ever, Jeff McBride and Larry Hass will be presenting two unique one-day conferences exploring the healing art of meaningful magic. McBride's Mystery School have hosted events in Las Vegas for many years which I have long planned to bring a flavour of to magicians in the UK (namely the 'Magic & Medicine' and 'Magic & Meaning' conferences). Shaman & Showman is a two-day event.


Saturday 28th March, 10am-6pm: The Healing Power of Magic. Open to doctors, medical practitioners, therapists, healers, as well as magicians and magic practitioners. Learn how the art of magic can be used in therapeutic environments. With an intense focus on raising your magic—and your performances—to a whole new level.


Sunday 29th March, 10am-6pm: The Meaning of Magic. Magic is the art of Transformation. You will learn enough material to create a brand new show and, more importantly, you'll leave with a deeper, more refined appreciation for the power of your own magic, and how to tap into your best inner-magician.


Both dates are very limited as there will be group/individual learning with over £150 worth of free merchandise (different bundle each day). Plus, Early Bird tickets are now on sale at a reduced price. Each day is only £55, or just £99 for the entire weekend (until 31.12.19). We have secured a holistic training venue for the conference. Your ticket includes arrival drinks and buffet lunch. It's taken a lot of preparation over many years to make these events a reality and may never be repeated. If you want to spend a weekend with two of the greatest teachers in magic and explore how magic can be used for deeper connection, then please book your ticket today. Full details and venue information: www.jayfortune.co.uk/product-category/shaman-showman. If you've ever dreamed of attending the Las Vegas conferences and never made it, don't delay in booking your ticket today at a fraction of the cost and treat yourself to a sample of these magical experiences.

At the age of 16 he was awarded the prestigious Young Magician of the Year award by the Magic Circle and is one of the youngest ever members of The Inner Magic Circle (with Gold Star) – the highest level of the famous Magic Circle.

His ideas have been performed by some of the world's top magicians and he has designed illusions for The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Old Vic, The Globe, The Hampstead Theatre and was the mind behind the acclaimed special effects in the west end production of The Exorcist.

From the promoters: "Richard Jones was the winner of Britain's Got Talent and is a British Army soldier as well as one of the world’s greatest magicians in The Magic Circle. Having recently had audiences on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions completely captivated, Richard is extending his sell-out tour of the UK earlier this year. Therefore due to popularity, new dates in 2020 have been announced where the mesmerising Lance Corporal will confirm exactly what made him the stand out act to win Britain’s top talent show in 2016... And still the only magician to have won the show. After gasps of emotion shown on the ITV1 programme, much of the audience this month were reduced to tears when Richard paid tribute to his veteran mentor, Fergus Anckorn – a fellow magician who died last year before his 100th birthday. On his extended tour of Escape, Richard endeavours to break the boundaries of the mind with his ‘magic with meaning’, debuting a further twist on some of his newest, awe-inspiring magic. In heart-warming memory of Fergus, he will be recreating some of his dear friend’s most incredible tricks too - some of which the legendary soldier only ever taught Richard himself."

Northern Magic Summit - Harrogate

1st to 3rd May

Secretary Brian Lead writes: "When we’re sixty-four" may sound like a Beatles song title, but the NMC, founded 1956, will be celebrating another momentous birthday with a Northern Summit over the weekend of 1st to 3rd May next year. You can look forward to the well established blend of shows, lectures, workshops, dealers and an auction. So far we have lined up the Patrick Page Experience, President Roy Field’s ‘Magic by the Seaside’, an ‘All-Winners’ gala show and public children’s show, a celebrity interview and even a non-magical event to cater all tastes. The convention will open with a welcoming meal and cabaret and close with the now traditional ‘fringe’ session. Last year, the Northern returned to its spiritual home in Harrogate, and will once more be in residence at the Crown Hotel. The Northern Summit has earned the reputation of the friendliest convention in the calendar, so put those dates in your diary now and look out for further details on the website and in our Northern Lights magazine. www.northernmagiccircle.org.uk.
