Welcome to the Cotswold Magical Society
Next Star Lecture: Martin Duffy
23 May 2018
Martin Duffy started his professional career as a children’s entertainer at a private holiday camp when he was 21 and has been a full time professional children's entertainer in the Newcastle area since 1986. In recent years, he has made a name for himself for his shows for schools and has developed special educational magic shows covering themes such as environmental issues, mathematics, science, healthy eating, road safety and ‘stranger danger’.
In 2017, he gave a 15-minute power presentation on the subject of Magic in Schools at the Trix in the Stix. This year he launched his Maths Magic Show course, limiting it to 100 magicians worldwide, and it sold out within a week. We are very lucky to have secured Martin to present his full Magic in Schools lecture for us at the Cotswold Magical Society. Please note the unusual date for this lecture – not the first or third Wednesday in the month, but the fourth Wednesday.

Perhaps Andi Gladwin’s greatest trick is how he divides his time between being a professional close-up magician, magic creator, Genii columnist, co-founder of Vanishing Inc. Magic and lecturer. His Master Pushoff and Multiple Revelation Project DVDs were best sellers and received rave reviews in all major magic journals. Over the past year Andi has lectured at the biggest conventions in the world including The Session, Blackpool, FISM, Magi-Fest, The Genii Convention and many more. Do not miss this lecture !!

Club Twinning – Visit from the British Magical Society
Through the offices of Bob King, member of the Cotswold Magical Society and president-elect of the British Magical Society, we have arranged a pair of club twinning evenings. This evening we can sit back and enjoy entertainment provided by the BMS. The evening will begin with close-up magic at a number of tables in the club room, and after a small buffet provided by the CMS, the BMS will then put on a show of platform magic. In October, it will be our turn to visit the BMS and entertain their members in a similar fashion.
“The standard of lectures at the society has been amazing”
