Thursday 21st March 7.30pm - Fritz Alkemade Lecture


Fritz Alkemade


His lecture will treat you to some amazing effects.

Fritz Alkemade lecture June 4th 2013.  For the first time Fritz “with a Z” Alkemade will present his new lecture in the United Kingdom in 2013.


His DVD debut “Let’s go Dutch” was raved about in both MAGIC (“a definite treat”) and Genii Magazine (“Well done, strong, versatile material”).  And Fritz’ contribution “Just in Time 2.0” was voted one of the best tricks of 2011 by Joshua Jay.

Fritz is one of the busiest working magicians in the Netherlands.  Yes, the country that brought magicians such as Fred Kaps, Richard Ross and Tommy Wonder.  Now Fritz will share with you how he astonishes his audiences.


Two hours of magic that comes straight out of Fritz’ professional repertoire.  It’s not a lecture, it’s an interactive event, where there is room for discussion on philosophy, impromptu magic, card and coin magic, close and stand up, etc.
