Wayne Trice

Wayne is a proud member of both the IBM British Ring no. 25 and The Magic Circle and holds the degree of AIMC with silver star. His magical journey began at The Demon Club, a club for young magicians run by the Davenports family in the studio behind the shop. Whilst magic has always been a part of Wayne’s life, his interests expanded to the world of theatre, where he took on roles as both a performer and in various backstage roles for plays and musicals.

With a background in lighting, sound design, and stage management, Wayne has now become one of the crew for IBM British Ring conventions. He also served as the Theatre Manager at The Magic Circle. Whilst he enjoyed the challenge of the technical aspects of staging shows, Wayne now focuses on performing and hosting events, both corporate and private. Currently, he is the resident compere for West End Magic, London's longest-running family magic show.

In 2023, West End Magic celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a nationwide tour, and the show continues to captivate audiences, hitting the road again this year. For upcoming shows, visit www.westendmagic.com/upcoming-shows.

Tonight, Wayne is delighted to be asked to serve as the compere for the gala show, and is looking forward to introducing some amazing acts to you and enjoying the day of the convention.
