“I’ve been attending the monthly magic workshops in Hull for over a year and it’s been really useful! The hints, tips and secret magical information from visiting professional performers has given me confidence with my performances.”
Nathan, the Hymers College young Merlin
"The workshop has many professional performers and award winners among their ex-members. Former member Jack Gleadow won both our stage & close-up competitions! Subsequently he was invited to perform in the USA for one of the world's biggest magic conventions!
Youngsters with an interest in magic who can already perform one or two tricks, however simple, can come along to the workshops. Who knows, we may discover the next Dynamo!”
Richard Morrell of Hull Magicians' Circle
The Humberside Young Magicians’ Workshop was founded in 1971 to give youngsters with a magical interest the opportunity to swap ideas, perform magic and receive help to enable them to develop their acts.
Meetings run on a monthly basis for the 10-16 year olds of the area. It is currently held at Kingston Wesley Methodist Church on the first Saturday in the month from 10am - 12am and is organised by HMC members Richard Morrell, Jon Marshall, Malcolm Bromwich and Tom Wilkinson.
We try to keep the mornings as open and flexible as possible to allow time to discuss tricks, let the members perform and ask questions. In addition to this we usually have a session with close-up props teaching new tricks and sleights!
