We are delighted to welcome the Chairman of the Modern Mystic League and the newly appointed President of the Northern Magic Circle, Roger Woods, who will be lecturing on 'Some Favourite Close-up'.
Dr Roger Woods is a lawyer, magician, author, lecturer and publisher. He first got into magic at the age of 10 when he was given a David Nixon magic set and has continued the art for over 5 decades.
The reason I still love magic after all these years is the challenge of learning new things, the subtleties that not everyone sees. I'm a big fan of being able to fool people - in the nicest way possible!
He is also a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the Northern Magic Circle and the Cavendish Knights of Close-Up Magic. He is an Associate Member of The Inner Magic Circle (AIMC with Silver Star) and a member of The Magic Circle Ethics Committee. He enjoys performing close-up magic and also conducting extensive research on magical history which has lead to number of books being published (co-authored with Brian Lead MIMC).
