The Ilford Magical Society

Our aim is the same as most, if not all, of the numerous magic societies throughout the world … to foster and encourage friendship and the art of magic.

We welcome new members and if you would like to join us or attend one of our club nights please contact us.



Members of The Ilford Magical Society make regular appearances at fundraising events, presenting close-up ‘right-under-your-nose’ magic and cabaret shows for family audiences in towns and villages across the Essex region including Romford, Upminster, Brentwood and Harlow.


By selling tickets, holding raffles and other fundraising activities, organisations can make a healthy profit and leave guests with memories of a great evening of entertainment. A typical show involves up to 10 magicians performing at guests’ tables and presenting a cabaret show with two or three acts.


Prepare for an evening of wonders. In the first half of the evening, our magicians will visit your tables and and perform miracles right under your nose. After an interval where you can have your raffle, you will then be treated to a stage show where a number of magicians will entertain you with illusions and feats of mind reading


Close-up magic is the first part of the evening. Each table will be entertained by four different magicians during the first half of the evening. Prepare for close-up miracles.


After the interval, the lights will go down and your attention will focused on the stage where feats of magic, mystery and mind-reading will be on display.


"I would like to thank all the magicians who performed at Romford Golf Club in aid of Blind Veterans U.K.  The evening was a great success and the feedback on the performances was extremely complementary.  The amount raised was a substantial £1520!” (Romford Golf Club)
