Celebrating 100 years of the Leeds Magic Circle.

Helping to promote and advance magic in the Leeds area since 1919.

The Leeds Magic Scene

Magic is flourishing
in Leeds

Thanks to a number of factors magic in Leeds has never been more popular. People see live magic in the Leeds area more than ever before, this can be in large stadiums (Dynamo at Leeds First Direct Arena), theatres (Derren Brown at Leeds Grand Theatre) and at other events with a local magician (like at weddings, restaurants, parties, public shows, company events and loads more). This gives a lot of opportunity for magicians in Leeds to grow and to become great.  

In the Leeds Magic Circle we have members of all levels from working professional magicians, hobbyists, historians of magic and more. We are here to help magicians of all levels by introducing you to the magic community, giving you opportunities to perform, holding competitions and offering lectures from some of the best magicians and magic related performers in the UK. 

How to Join

Leeds Day of Magic
6th April 2019

11.00am to 4pm at Leeds Kirkgate Market

In 2019 the Leeds Magic Circle is celebrating its centenary with a day of magic. This is a completely free event for all members of the public and will be held in the superb entertainment arena of the Leeds Kirkgate Market.

The day will include escape artist Michael Diamond attempting the extremely dangerous escape form a strait jacket whilst suspended high up from a crane in the open air. This is a recreation of the stunt performed by Houdini when he visited the City of Leeds. Other entertainment will include our own members performing close-up magic and other magical related happenings that can be viewed in the arena itself.

This promises to be a mammoth event for the Leeds Magic Circle and Leeds itself, with everyone invited.

FREE ADMISSION courtesy of the Leeds Magic Circle and our kind sponsors.
