Great news from Craig Frith that we have an extra lecture for the Sheffield Circle’s current lecture series: Andi Gladwin will be presenting his brand new lecture on Wednesday 26 October.

Andi is cofounder, with Joshua Jay, of Vanishing Inc. Magic. He specialises in card magic, and has released two highly regarded instructional DVD sets on areas he is an expert at: the multiple selection and the multiple pushoff. His Master Pushoff DVD received rave reviews in every magic journal.

With over 15 years of performing experience and a wealth of knowledge about the magic industry and history, we are absolutely delighted to have Andi Gladwin join us. Andi’s sleight of hand is second to none and his magic is world class (he was the only UK magician to perform at President Obama’s inauguration in 2013).

“The best magic creates a story,” Andi says, “My aim is for everyone to walk away with a new experience that they will talk about for the rest of their lives.”

The lecture is at 7:30 pm on Wednesday 26 October at The Magic Lounge, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield, S2 5TG. Doors open at 7:00 pm with the alacrity born of efficiency and experience.Admission is £5 to Sheffield Circle members, £10 to visiting magicians.

Join us and get ready to have your magic be forever changed.

Andi Gladwin to Lecture at The Lounge

Andi GladwinNovember looks like being a vintage month for lectures here at The Lounge. On Thursday 1 November we have professional close-up and stand-up magician Andi Gladwin presenting his acclaimed lecture, plus a bonus of three new pieces!

Earlier this month Andi received The John Nevil Maskelyne Literary Award from The Magic Circle. The award is presented for “noteworthy contributions to the art or literature of magic”, so it is clear that this is a lecture not to be missed.

Here’s a small sampling of what you’ll learn:

An introduction to the Master Pushoff;

A decent helping of close-up tricks that Andi uses in his professional performances;

A full stand-up routine that fits in a briefcase, yet fills a stage;

If the audience wishes, he is also prepared to add a brief talk, with some interesting thoughts on marketing for magicians. (I trust you will wish; marketing is vital to anyone who hopes to earn a living from magic, but is too often overlooked.)

The lecture starts at 7:30 at The Magick Lounge, 82 Broad Street, Sheffield S2 5TG. Doors open at 7:11 p.m. Admission is £10, but free to paid-up members of the Sheffield Circle of Magicians.
