Thank you for visiting The Bristol Society of Magic website.  The Society is a lively group of magic enthusiasts who enjoy performing, improving and learning more about the art of magic. Amongst the members are pure hobbyists, semi professionals and full time performers who earn their living from performing magic.  We have children’s entertainers as well as close-up magicians who all share their knowledge and skills with each other.

The club fixture list features talks, competitions, specialist nights and workshops on all aspects of magic (see the Diary page).  The society has an illustrious history going back to its formation in 1921 (see the History page) and presents the Bristol Day of Magic, a convention for magicians featuring international artistes and lecturers well known in the magic world.

Applications for membership are very welcome from practicing magicians whether hobbyists, part time or full time performers (see the How to Join page). We meet at the Vassall Centre in Fishponds fortnightly on Thursday evenings (see the Venue map page) and potential members are invited to attend two meetings as a guest before they join.
