Oh what a night…. capacity turn out, excellent acts, lovely guests, food, drink and loads of laughter.

Our President Bruce Graham opened proceedings, welcoming guests and saying how happy he was that we were meeting up again, something I know Bruce was very keen to do.

Dave Akhurst did an excellent job as compere, filling in the gaps with funny one line gags and playing the ukulele and singing.

First act he introduced was Terry Herbert, who opened the show.. and what an opening… a beautiful opening effect made by Reg Martin over 30 years ago, and still being used. Funniest opening effect I have seen. This was followed by the Egg Bag, then Terrys Note to Sausage routine which is very well constructed and extremely funny…

Next up was Graham Lee, with his original and clever balloon act… some lovely bits of magic using balloons as props… again a very funny and innovative act.

Next up was our founder, Reg Martin, who travelled down from Bicester to be at the re-opening.

Reg amazed and amused us with his mind reading Canary, an original idea of his which is a brilliant comedic effect.

Then the interval where sandwiches, cakes and drinks were available, giving everyone a chance to chat and catch up on the last 18 months. Many thanks to Denise for her help, and also to Sophie for selling raffle tickets.

Opening the second half was Dave Tawney. Dave is a lovely man and an excellent performer… he did Whos Who at the Zoo, to a roomful of adults, and he carried it off wonderfully. This was followed by his Troublewit routine, which is a very clever display of paper folding… Dave is an expert at this unique and seldom seen form of entertainment, the audience loved it.

Top of the bill was Colin Perrotton, with the guest appearance of his lovely wife Gloria… they performed a very funny dove in balloon routine, which deliberately went horribly wrong… Colin then finished up with a colour Monte routine.

The evening was over too quickly, but it was so nice to see so many members, and quite a few new members… we are always looking for new members, so if you know anyone who might like to join the friendliest magic and performance arts club in Kent, please let them know about the Kent Magicians Guild.

One last thing, the Stag Theatre is our new venue, and the staff were so helpful, I would like to thank them all for their help.

Next Meeting Tuesday 27th July 2021… please come along, we are arranging a very special night…more details to follow.

David Jonathan lecture free to KMG members

We are very pleased to announce on the 3rd June 2021 we are teaming up with Orpington Magic Club to bring a very exciting zoom lecture to your screens.

For this two hour lecture, I have handpicked some of my favorite creations to teach, and I’ll also pull back the curtain on the creative process to share my tips creating magic.  You will also get a first look at some incredible unpublished effects!

Everything you will learn is practical, workable material that is easy to do.  The majority of the effects involve cards of sorts, but also photographs, dice, symbols, books and even UNO cards. The first half of the lecture is focused on magic, while the second half is all mentalism routines.

With thanks to Mike Maxted for arranging this very special night.
