After a wait that seems like it has gone forever, I have great pleasure in announcing that after all the hard work and effort, I have passed the magic circle exam.
What is involved?
My application had to to be supported by two existing members of The Magic Circle who have each known me for at least one year (many members of The Magic Circle are also members of local Magic Clubs where they were able to give me advice and support).
I was then invited to an interview with the Examinations Secretary to discuss my magical experience, discussing books I have read and the type of magic I like performing. I had to ensure that my magic skills were at an appropriate level and I had sufficient knowledge to take the more formal audition.
The interview took place recently at The Magic Circle headquarters in London, where I had an opportunity to enjoy an evening at the world’s most prestigious magic club, explore the buildings and see other candidates take their examinations.
I was finally then invited to take my examination (audition) where I was judged on my magic and presentation skills. I don’t mind admitting it was a very nerve racking time for not just me, but my Wife who has supported me throughout the wole process, I can’t thank her enough!
I am now allowed to emblazen my website with the prestigious logo of the magic circle, presented at the footer of my website to allow people to know that indeed, I am amongst a league of professional artisans in the field of magic and mentalism !
