After the sell out success of last year this year promises to be even better. We are, with the great co-operation and assistance of the University of Hull, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the HMC Dinner being held at Staff House and honouring our President, Eddie Dawes' long association with the University of Hull as Professor of Bio-Chemistry and his scientific career as well as his passion for magic and it's history. Science Magic!

During the reception guests will be invited to participate in entertaining Science Magic demonstrations and experiments presented by three University of Hull Scientists, Mark Lorch, Laura Broodle, Phil Bell-Young and direct from BBC’s The One Show, Hull Magicians' Circle member Dr Tim Cockerill.

Close-up Magic!
There will be close-up magic performed right under your noses by Hull Magicians' Circle members during the evening.

Fine Dining!
As always Staff House are providing a sumptuous four-course and coffee banquet. International Magic and Variety Theatre show!

We have pulled out all stops for the after-dinner theatre show with truly International acts, staged with the help of lighting designer Tim Skelly and the University Drama Department. Appearing are:

Alex the Ace Magician. The colourful magic act of Nghia Cong Vo from Vietnam. We are delighted that Alex, originally from Da Nang, Vietnam is able to bring his accomplished act to our evening. It is especially pleasing as we are celebrating connections with the University of Hull, that Alex is currently studying Economics in Hull.

Quentin Reynolds from Dublin is our host and compere. With his droll, Irish humour Quentin is an established professional magician and has appeared throughout the world, has created and published many magic tricks and routines. He is currently touring his Psychic Game Show mindreading act.

Pippa the Ripper, the Hula Hoop hurricane from Germany brings a touch of Burlesque to the show. She is a Guinness World Record holder. Pippa trained at Circus School in Australia and since then has been seen on ITV's Britain's Got Talent, Celebrity Wedding and is a favourite in London's Cabaret scene and Germany's Variete night spots.

Romany, the glamorous, charming and deliciously entertaining, mistress of illusion will close the show - she has been The Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year, is a Member of the Inner Magic Circle and comes to our show from her appearances on International Cruise Liners and at Hollywood's Magic Castle. She's appeared with Penn and Teller and was awarded the Las Vegas Golden Lion Award. Her fabulously flamboyant and extraordinary act is guaranteed to put a spell on you!
