Christmas came early for The Ilford Magical Society as they held their Chistmas party last evening. In a packed clubroom, members and guests pitted their wits against each other and later gasped with amazement. Alan Day, TIMS answer to Magnus Magnussen, posed the questions in a quiz to test both magical and general knowledge. Later in the evening, four of the club’s regular performers entertained the tables with close-up magic. The highlight of the evening was the ‘stage show’ which featured a recreation of Houdini’s last seance given by Brian Phillips followed by a guest appearance of Lee Chang our own ‘Lord of the Rings’. A good time was had by all and thank you to the committee.
