Jay Sankey Lecture

Jay is based in Toronto and has performed all over the world, including sold-out shows at the exclusive Magic Castle, the prestigious 'Just For Laughs' comedy festival in Montreal and appeared at conventions around the world. Jay has also been a creative consultant for David Copperfield, David Blaine and the 'American Gods' television series. Arguably the most prolific magic creator in the world, he has already thought of it all and then some! 

To quote Jay he says, “My new Zoom lecture features a bunch of visually-driven and FUN tricks, lots of magic and a bit of mentalism, using mostly everyday, household stuff and it is most definitely NOT a 'dealer demo.”

“The focus is on the shocking tricks, sleights and presentations, but also on some theory re: making the magic more person and memorable.”

Christmas Party

For the first time in our societies history, our Christmas party will be very different with an evening of festive fun from the comfort of your very own home, and you will be able to eat drink and be merry and not worry about driving home. The perfect end to a year. 

I would like to personally thank both the Bath and Bristol Societies for their help with our past and future 2020 COVID programme, as without them some of our magical evenings wouldn’t have been possible
