BIG NEWS COMING SOON! Stay tuned...
Present or share your craziest magic effects or experiences. All magicians have had had those moments that make us scratch our heads in disbelief... and not always because the magic was so amazing.
APRIL FOOL US
Back by popular demand (real or imagined) we will have a contest in the style of Penn & Teller's: Fool Us television show.
Present your magic before our esteemed magician judges at the magic club meeting. If you fool them you win a trophy (or reasonable facsimile thereof.)
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU
Present a trick or share ideas for using "the force."
Which forces have you mastered?
Do you think equivoque is easy? Think again. Come learn important subtleties that can take your use of this forcing technique to new heights as a magician.
SAY SOMETHING NICE DAY
According o "Wacky Times" June first is "Say Something Nice Day". Let's take this opportunity to encourage one another by sharing a favorite trick or experience. How can we use magic to lift someone's spirits? Bring a nice magician to the magic club this month.
FRIED CHICKEN DAY
This is the month to try out a new trick or technique. Get over being a chicken, and test out a piece you just started working on, or get help with something you have always been afraid to try.
GRAB SOME NUTS DAY
First, let's explore just what does "nuts" mean? Are we talking about nuts that you eat!? Most likely so. But, we also could be talking about the nuts that go with bolts. Or, perhaps this day is about some of our nutty friends. We've all got a few of those. What is your nuttiest magic routine?
The Magic Club meets the first Monday of every month at the Lansdale Public Library, 301 Vine Street, Lansdale, PA 19446 from 6:30-8:30pm (holidays excluded)
The club has become a great venue for sharing and learning the art of magic. Anyone seriously interested in magic is welcome to join us, from beginners to professionals of all ages. Here you can find collaborators gladly helping you refine your performance or presenting their latest projects to entertain everyone or just try out something new. The Magic Club is about encouraging one another to express their creativity in a judgement free, safe, supportive environment where we can all triumph or fail without worry.
The Magic Club is a very social environment where attendees can freely share with one another or the entire group. Occasionally there will be a theme or contest that is open for everyone.
The Magic Club is FREE of charge with no membership or subscription fee of any kind.
"Sometime around 1996, I started my first magic club. We actually met in a restaurant then moved to Temple University's Fort Washington location and met in one of the classrooms. When I closed the store in late 1998, the club disappeared."
"In 2006, my magic shop (Kurt's Magic World) was re-opened in Ambler and then moved to Lansdale in 2008. Shortly after in the same year, another club was formed. We met at the Sumney Restaurant in Lansdale then moved to Franconi's Pizza in North Wales. They were very accommodating there and gave us our own room. We later moved the club to the Lansdale library as it was much more conducive to performing privately and sharing secrets of the arts. "
"In the past, we performed 3 events there, each being held on a Saturday morning. The events featured magic performances from 5-6 magicians. These shows were offered to the community free of charge and were well received and attended. In fact, we had to turn away people as we could not fit more than 100 audience members in the community room."
-- Kurt Brasch (Founder of Lansdale Magic Club)

In October of 2018 Main Street Magic Shop began hosting the magic club at the library, after Kurt closed his magic store to us so he could focus on his family, magic performances and other business ventures.
