Bringing selected content from the E-Club Pro pages to your clubroom


"On behalf of the Ring 205 in Indianapolis I wanted to say thanks for the E-Club Pro - Live! lecture. Lots of wisdom, logic and jewels were in the information you shared with us." Chris Topel

This club evening enables me to bring to your clubroom selected elements from E-Club Pro, my online club and information resource. During the evening I will perform and fully explain a selection of routines and ideas extracted from the Vintage Vault and Teach In sections of the E-Club Pro website pages.

There will be magic for close up shows, walkabout work, stand up and mentalism, and everything shown is practical and within the skill range of everyone except the total beginner.

I will also share a couple of the hilarious tales from the It Could Only Happen Live section which show that even full time pros have moments of totally unexpected surprise!

E-Club Pro - Live! provides a really entertaining and enjoyable evening full of magic to learn and entertain. The included material is normally reserved for online viewing only by paid up members of the Club itself, so this is a great chance to experience some of the Club's contents live in your clubroom.

The fee for this lecture/dem evening is £150 plus overnight accommodation (where required) in a hotel plus petrol* (see below).

Your E-Club Pro - Live! lecture was well received and everyone enjoyed it. Your Invisible Deck Routine "Imagination" went straight into my walk-around repertoire. Thanks again for a great lecture! Jim Harris, President Louisville Magic Club, USA

How to cope doing magic at reception events



"I would like to thank you for an excellent evening. I was very pleased that we had a good turn out and everyone I have spoken to spoke very highly about your Going Walkabout lecture. Well done."
Paul Hayter, Portsmouth and District Magic Circle

Working without a table, completely surrounded, and to groups of spectators who may move, leave or join at any moment during a performance, is a challenging situation for the close up magician. In this brand new lecture I reveal a whole host of tips, techniques and ideas to make sure that you can rise to the challenge effectively. I will give advice born from experience on:

  • how to break into groups
  • how to command the attention of the spectators
  • how to manage the group effectively
  • how to cope without the use of any table
  • how to select the right tricks to carry
  • how to tailor material so that it can be worked surrounded
  • how to adapt to cramped or awkward venues
  • plus plenty more topics relevant to the walkabout magician

As well as giving my professional advice, I will also perform and explain a number of my routines which are ideal for walkabout magic making the Going Walkabout lecture of interest and value to everyone. With many years lecturing experience behind me, I always endeavour to deliver a fascinating and professionally presented evening which guarantees a good time for all those who attend.

The fee for this lecture evening is £150 plus overnight accommodation (where required) in a hotel plus petrol* (see below).

"Members I have spoken to said how much they enjoyed your Going Walkabout lecture. Those who are thinking about entering into walkabout magic would certainly benefit from your experience. Personally I thought the lecture was presented in a very entertaining way and would recommend it to other clubs." Barrie Savage, President of the Bristol Society Of Magic
