I'm in Leeds and was thinking the same thing I know there is a Leeds Magic Circle and a Bradford Circle but was thinking of something more casual and social setting.

I'm a regular visitor to the famous magic lounge which is based in Sheffield.. Every Saturday the lounge opens for all to meet and have a chat and perform a few magic tricks.. Its a marvelous place to meet fellow magicians. Also there is a shop inside so you can buy a few items as well.. Place does get very busy, so be prepared to stand, otherwise get there early... Here's the address.. Place opens, 11am to 4.30pm( 82 Broad Street. Sheffield. S2 5TG.)

hi. thanks for the info i will go down on a staturday morning.
when you are just starting out and 52 year old its a bit hard on your own, i know the internet is brilliant for information but its far better to have a chat with people who know what they are doing. Mr invisible do you go most saturdays ? would be nice to meet you. cheers steve.

Went down to the magic lounge on Saturday morning. Very friendly people, made me feel very welcome and got some fantastic information from them and a nice cup of tea.. Learnt quite a lot while I was there. The time just flew by, got there at around 11.15 and left at about 3.00pm. Also bought a few bits from the shop, BIP book was a bargain at £15.00...also found out a lot about my f1 nitro wallet which I did not know.. Big thank you to all of them. I will definitely go down again.. Thanks Garry for the heads up about this place. Hope to meet you soon. Steve.

Some of the guys in Sheffield are the serious workers, you could probably call a few of them pro's, I just plod along with a few gigs every know and then, although been into magic for over 15 years, never really been a full time worker/performer.. But hopefully will be able show you a few things when i come down.. 8)

been down again Saturday,got talking to a young man called Brandon and he gave me some spot on info.. Did my Get Sharky and a few others I have got and it went very well. its the first time I have performed them to people other than my tester. (the wife). Get sharky went down really good and my very basic trick Meltdown was also a good one. Also got some good tips on how to use my £2.00 to 50p coin unique.. this looks like a regular place for me on a Saturday morning.

Nice one Steve.. Always knew you would get plenty of help from those guys.. The guy who helped you, Brandon is a friend of mine.. He can sure use the cards well can't he ? 8)
