Who Are We?
The Young Magicians Club welcomes enthusiastic people aged between ten and eighteen who want to learn not just "how it's done" but how to do it properly! With exciting features in our bi- monthly magazine "Secrets" on performance tips, tricks and routines together with our regular "hands on workshops" (mostly held at the amazing The Magic Circle Headquarters, the Centre for the Magic Arts in London) hosted by some of the best professional magicians in the world, we can help turn your enthusiasm into a polished professional looking act, providing you are willing to put in the research and hours of practice necessary. Dominic Wood did, now he has his own TV show! Could you be next?
The Young Magicians Club is great way to get involved with the world of magic and meet other young magicians. I know that my membership played a big part in introducing me to the magic community and, over a decade since I left the club, I am still good friends with several other past members.

The security of our members is paramount. Because of this, the following measures are in place for all YMC activities:
- All Young Magicians Club organisers are police checked for the member's security
- All workshops are covered by Public Indemnity insurance
- A qualified First Aid practitioner is on hand throughout all workshops
- The privacy and emotions of all members are respected at all times - no member is ever asked to do something they would rather not do (although we do encourage members to perform publicly)
I highly value my time at the Young Magician's Club. The organisation, teaching and lectures are all world class. Without it, I wouldn't be the magician I am today. I highly recommend this club to any budding magicians wishing to progress within the art of magic

I was one of the first members of YMC and at first it was simply a postal club with a bi-monthly magazine edited by Anthony Owen and Marc Paul; two magicians whom I am now proud to call friends and colleagues. I remained a member until I was old enough to join The Magic Circle and during those six years, the Young Magicians Club opened up many doors for me. To say that the club changed my life is an understatement: it was a guiding path to turn me into the magician I am today.
