Ilford Magical Society: Show for Cancer Research UK, 29/10/11

Amidst Halloween decorations, the Ilford Magical Society helped Cancer Research UK to raise £700 towards their work. The show, which took place at St Peter’s Church – Benfleet, saw eleven close-up magicians confound the guests as each table was treated to the magic of four magicians. Cards, coins, ropes and more were used to great effect as magicians baffled and bemused their audiences. The second half cabaret featured Michael Wilkie, Alan Day and Mark Mchawi and was a mixture of dazzling silk magic, comedy and menalism. Brian Fisher kept the show moving with a mixture of magic and comedy.

A great night was had by all.
