New Interview With Adam Edgeley Coming This Friday
This week we are launching a series of interviews with the founders of The Leicester Magicians Network (LMN). A series of four interviews for May 2021 to celebrate the excellent LMN club and the first birthday of Magic Seats. The Leicester Magicians Network is a new club that launched in 2020 for magicians and those with a genuine interest in magic. This first interview is with Adam Edgeley and he talks about his book, performing and of course the Magic Circle. Adam is one of the UK's most entertaining and popular magicians and is always in high demand. As a close-up magician, he performs at wedding receptions, corporate events and parties bringing his own style of unique magic and humour to your event. He is a natural-born performer and is always excited to put his skills to the test in front of a crowd. I am lucky to know Adam through the LMN and I have attended some of his excellent workshops which includes the cups and balls which we will also discuss. To book Adam or learn more about his services prior to the interview, take a look at his website and social sites below.

Magic Seats - What’s the story behind the Leicester Magicians Network. How did the idea come about to form a new club? Whilst we all love and respect the traditions of ‘older’ magic societies, they can be sometimes intimidating to new members. The four founding members all shared a similar philosophy and it was something that we are all passionate about, particularly in bringing on the next generation of magicians. This is why we thought long and hard about our mission statement: “To Create A Magic Community Where Everyone Who Is Passionate About Magic Is Welcome, Built Around Trust, Friendship and Support, And Aiming to Help All Members to Be the Best They Can Be.” Magic Seats - With many magic clubs to join, what is different about Leicester Magicians Network. Why join your club? When founding The Leicester Magicians Network, the philosophy was to create a modern forward-thinking Club that was not constrained by out-dated ideas or principles. Unlike traditional magic clubs we have dispensed with the requirement for an audition in order to join. We do not want in any way want to preclude anyone from joining such as the hobbyist magician. Our desire is to promote a relaxed, friendly environment which allows members of all abilities to share ideas, ask questions without fear, or perform if they feel comfortable. We also have what we believe to be a unique membership model where for when a small set annual fee is paid, it gives you access to many members evenings, workshops etc which occur average twice a month. On top of that, we of course have Professional Lectures which operate on a pay-as-you-go basis members are able to pick and choose which ones they wish to attend. Magic Seats - How did you come up with the name of the club? We had a bit of a brainstorming session and obviously creating a new magic club in the midst of a pandemic was a challenge. With the name we wanted to convey a message of ‘connectivity’ even though none of us could initially meet in person.
