I thought I’d do a quick post to let you know about a couple of lectures that the Scottish Conjurers’ Association are putting on in the next couple of weeks.
First off, on Wednesday 13 May, is Canada’s Shawn Farquhar who will be presenting his “Bread And Butter Lecture” in what will be his only Scottish date on his current lecture tour. I saw Shawn present the one-hour version of this lecture at Blackpool in 2008 and was really impressed by what he did in it. In fact, to save time, here’s what I wrote about it…
“I’ve seen Farquhar perform at the last 2 World Championships and he has always impressed me. He performs with enough energy to power a small town and is not scared to perform some impressive material – both in terms of technique and effect. His lecture was full of very easy material (he likes easy!) and the same energy that he gives when I’ve seen him perform in the past.”

The other lecture is the following week, Wednesday 20 May, and is being presented by America’s Steve Beam. Steve is the author of the “Semi Automatic Card Tricks” series which has, in its 7 volumes, become the largest and most reliable source for professional calibre non-sleight of hand card magic. Not only is he brilliant with a deck of cards, he is also incredibly funny.

Both of these lectures will be taking place at the SCA’s headquarters at the Scottish Mask and Puppet Theatre, 8-10 Balcarres Avenue, Kelvindale, Glasgow, G12 0QF with both starting at 7:30pm. Best of all, entrance to each lecture is only £5! A bargain!
See you there?
