Focus Events

FOCUS on Parlour & Stage Magic. (workshop)

Saturday 27th February 2016. 11am-10pm.

This full day of magical teaching focuses on parlour and stage performance. With a saturated close-up market, magicians who have a strong repertoire of parlour and stage magic are ahead of the crowd, earning bigger fees and more prestigious gigs. Learn the business-side of how to get this kind of work, as well as how to structure a commercial parlour and stage show. The day includes a late lunch, lectures, workshops, break-out groups, hands-on teaching… and then you’ll watch the Mystery School at work as they present a full evening show ‘Masters of Magic’ to a public audience.
