Pat Page Talk
The Merlin Magical Society
Reviewed by John Clayton, Secretary & Vice President of the Merlin Magical Society
The Merlin Magical Society had a brilliant evening, hosted by Janette Page and Philip Pound.
The evening consisted of Janette talking about her Father's life as a magician, magical advisor and loving Father. There was a slide show, which accompanied the talk, with lots of pictures and some video footage covering the life of Pat Page; some of which has never been shared before in the magic world.
Some of the photos shown were taken by Philip Pound, who is a professional photographer by trade. He also had lots of stories to share about his times with Pat. Philip showed lots of pictures that he had taken, including the ones used for the last couple of books published.
After the talk, there was a chance to purchase many of the Pat Page effects, including the last book written by Pat, 'Magic Page by Page'.
I have to say that even though this was a talk, and not the typical magic lecture that we are usually used to seeing at magic clubs, it was very entertaining indeed. I would definitely recommend the Pat Page Talk to any magic society, as it is a piece of our magical history.
I would like to thank both Janette Page and Philip Pound who gave up their time free of charge, to come to our club and put on such a different and entertaining evening.
