The Young Magicians of Mann were thrilled to be invited to a lecture by French magic star David Stone, at the Columba Club on Friday evening. David is internationally famous for his magic, and recently received a standing ovation when he lectured at The Magic Circle in London. Most of the Island's magicians attended the lecture, arranged by the Magicians of Mann with support from the Isle of Man Arts Council. It was, said chairman Paul Martin, an absolutely wonderful evening. Paul explained "David Stone is revered by magicians worldwide for his originality and humour. He was an inspiration to the Young Magicians of Mann, who are staging their own magic show at the Youth Arts Centre in Douglas on the afternoon of Sunday, 4th December. David was so supportive of them, and his lecture will definitely help them to put on an another entertaining and fun-filled afternoon of magic."
Secretary Mike Clague added "We have been able to bring some fantastic wonder-workers to the Island, but David was probably the best of them all. The young magicians are now even more determined to add wonderment to their very last show." For information about their show, called Finale, leave a message on tel. 878328. Tickets cost £7. Michael Vincent, another world class magician and Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, comes to Douglas on Friday to perform at a buffet and cabaret to mark 29 years of magic by the Young Magicians of Mann. The club is to close at the end of 2016, and Finale will be the last occasion at which the club members will perform together.
