How to join

We are here to help magicians become better. We only ask that you have a keen interest in the art of magic and want to learn more. We take on new members regularly.

In order to join and become a full member of the Leeds Magic Circle you will have to perform in front of us to show your skill level (don’t worry you don’t have to do this straight away) then we will vote whether we think you are suitable for full membership. 

You are welcome to come along to a meeting or lecture (payment required for non members) to see what we are all about and meet the other members. We meet on the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm at St. Johns C. of E. Church Hall, Harrogate Rd, Leeds, LS17 7BZ.

For more information please contact our Membership Secretary Alan Beet on 07970 692546 or email
