World Class Lecturers

We've had lectures from Lennart Green, Josh Jay, Richard Osterlind, Piff the Magic Dragon and hundreds more!

Competitions

Each year, members of the BMS battle it out for several highly-prized trophies.

Social Events

With many different social events throughout the year, there are myriad opportunites for friends and family to see more magic. Our annual dinner is hailed as the best on the circuit...

Lectures

Visitors are very welcome to any of these lectures but should either be a member of another society or be known to one of our members, a small fee may be payable.

We are always looking for new members so if you are a magician or have an interest in magic why not join us on an open meeting (marked with an asterisk) from 7.30pm onwards, or see our "how to join" page for more details.

Any lectures listed in red can be clicked to find out more information.
