Star Lecturers (Main Hall):
Jay Scott Berry-the "Signature" Lecture.
Recognized as one of the finest creators and performers of his generation, Jay has travelled the globe as a professional entertainer for over 25 years.
He is one of the living Masters of the Topit, the Thumb Tip, the Finger Shell, the Ring and Ribbon, Silk Magic and Coin Magic. His inspirational lectures have received rave reviews and standing ovations at magic clubs and conventions, earning him the title of "Magician's magician". It is often said that his Magic "is as close to real magic as you will ever see".
Always willing to go where none have, and create outside of the box, he has helped to shape the current state-of-the-magical-art.
The Signature Lecture is a "Best of" collection of Jay's creations. Included are many of his finest ideas, effects, gimmicks and routines, all of which are still an active part of his professional shows. This is your chance to see one of Magic's great minds in action as he performs and teaches his signature effects.
Romany - “That Thing You Do! ”.
Her lecture is about presentation, about how we treat props, about how to know who you are before you set foot on the stage, and of course a couple of tricks too. It's pulled from what she has learned from teachers of magic such as Bob Fitch, Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger and John Carney over the last twelve years.
Phill Smith - “Mitox Mentalism”. Phill, author of the acclaimed Mitox, Yokai and Mokele, handbooks on creative mentalism, presents an exciting lecture exposing the secrets of performing engaging mentalism and mental
magic. With a focus on practical methods and impactful presentation, Mitox mentalism is intent on delivering real-world experiences to real people. Phill offers a range of material suiting everyone from
hardcore mentalists to magicians keen to take advantage of the "mental" buzz. You can expect tried-and-tested
jaw-droppers that will work for you.
Workshop / Lectures (Side Rooms):
Paul Gordon - "Commercial Card Conjuring",
from a performer, magical author and lecturer who needs no further introduction
Tony Griffith - "Reflections". Tony
Griffith celebrates the release of his fourth (and allegedly final) book in the 'Reflections' series, Ultimate
Reflections, with this lecture:
Tony's books contain a veritable cornucopia of everything from refined
commercial close-up and stand-up magic to mentalism, kids' magic and the magic of science - all honed and
polished from a lifetime of performing in all kinds of venues around the world.
These books have rapidly become an 'underground' favourite among magicians, garnering great reviews from all
About our acts:
Romany - International star and Diva of Magic - will close the evening gala show with her spectacular stage act.
Strongly influenced by 1950s Hollywood and the stars of burlesque, Romany is famous for her fabulous costumes, diamonds and feathers as well as her highly-accomplished magic skills. “She puts the sauce back into sorcery.“
Time Out described her as “a flamboyant hybrid of Bette Midler and Mary Poppins... a fascinating razzle-dazzle mix of magic, original comedy and intelligent glamour“. Romany was honoured by the Magic Circle in 2009 when she became a Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star for performance.
She was the first woman to win Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year in 2007 and, in 2010, she received the International Brotherhood of Magicians' British Ring Shield for the most entertaining Stage Act!
