Michael Vincent

Michael Vincent Lecture – Announcement

We are extremely excited to announce a lecture from none other than master sleight of hand artist, Mr Michael Vincent! This will be Michael’s only lecture in Scotland and we feel incredibly privileged to bring him to Edinburgh.

On Saturday 5th April, 2014 the Nine of Diamonds will be hosting Michael for an afternoon on cards, coins and close up magic. If you’ve seen Michael perform you will know that not only does he handle coins and cards beautifully, but his knowledge of the history of magic is vast. Michael is known as an excellent teacher and is keen to share his experience with us.

We are offering the chance to see Michael in an intimate setting where he will share not only his effects, but also the thinking behind the structure of his routines, and demonstrate why he has been named the Best Close-Up Magician three times by The Magic Circle. Michael is considered the “gold-standard” of close-up magic, not just in the UK but worldwide.

The afternoon will consist of the three parts:

  • firstly a 20 minute performance by Michael;
  • secondly the main body of the lecture including routines with coins and cards as well as theory behind performance and structure;
  • and thirdly hands on teaching where Michael will focus on helping you with sleights and moves you’re keen to improve. So make sure to bring a note book!

Places at this three and a half hour lecture are strictly limited and tickets, priced just £15, are now available from the website.
