Programme, Events & Lectures 2019

Thursday 18th April 7.30pm - 'OLD PROP NIGHT' (Members Only)

The next meeting will be looking at old vintage props and you're welcome to bring yours in to demonstrate or talk about.

I'm sure we've all got a Supreme Magic or Edwins Arts Prop collecting dust that was once a favourite or is just a fond collectors piece. It could be a vintage gimmick seldom seen in the modern world. I think as fans of magic we're all secretly excited about this one!!! In particular it's a great chance for the older members to dig out stuff that the younger ones may never have seen before.

7.30 start - look forward to seeing you there!!! (MEMBERS ONLY)

Thursday 2nd May 7.30pm - An Evening With David Hurst (Members Only)

Join Vice President David Hurst as he hosts the first of a series of 'Evenings With...' featuring current members of the Guild.


David will be running a workshop style event as well as talking tips and tricks.


His knowledge of the art of the magic is absolutley phenomenal and we're all looking forward to a great evening.


Members only.


7.30pm Start.

Wednesday 15th May 7.00pm - THE MAGNIFICENT SPEIGELTENT

Public Event on The Old Market Square, Nottm, NG1 6HR

Returning from the success of their 2017 sold-out Speigel Tent show, the Nottingham Guild of Magicians is back to celebrate 80 years of magic with a night of close up magical experiences, illusions and mind blowing stage magic.

Immerse yourself in the magic and be prepared to be astonished and astounded by the best of our close-up performers. Then settle in and prepare to be entertained with a brand new one-off stage show, programmed specifically for this year’s Spiegeltent!

Headlining is magician, circus performer and all-round entertainer Kevin Burke. With over 30 years of performing and amazing people all over the UK, he’s coming to Nottingham with his unique, and sometimes dangerous, brand of magic and performing. Do not try this at home!

Accompanied by the Nottingham Guilds very own award-winning Stuart Brown and returning favourites from our 2017 show, Bindy Sahota and Matthew Arwen-Langham.

With over two hours of Nottingham’s best magic, and a long list of talented and up-and-coming performers, seeing is truly believing and this show is not one to be missed! The time to believe is now!

TICKETS £16.50 each OR £14.30 for Table of 8 (Includes booking fees)
