Greetings from north London

Postby Senor Blues » Tue Oct 10, 2017 3:44 pm



Hello there, I've just registered so thought I'd post a brief introduction.

I grew up in the 70s and 80s, and magic was one of my many hobbies. Around the age of ten I became more involved when I joined the junior section of the British Magical Society. I attended the conventions and bought tricks at a furious rate, but I performed only irregularly, at BMS Christmas shows and family parties, and eventually my interest dwindled when I started college at 15.

I always retained an affection for magic, and could usually dredge up a dining table trick from memory at Christmas time, but it wasn't till I had children of my own a few years ago that the interest began to rekindle.

I have two boys, John aged 7 and Frank aged 4. They love me to perform magic for them, so before long I was exhuming my old box of tricks from my parents' loft, and dusting down gimmicks that hadn't been used since the mid 80s. Then I started subscribing to magicians' YouTube accounts and magic shop email bulletins, and before I knew it, the collector in me was hooked again.

Since then I've taken the family to some Magic Circle shows, and have put on some slightly more ambitious Christmas performances for them. I would guess that the last time I performed for a non-familial audience was 1984. Do I want to do so again? I'm genuinely undecided. At the moment I'm just enjoying acquiring some new bits of kit, and watching the boys' eyes light up when I demonstrate them.
