Through A Glass Darkly

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

At this exclusive evening of mind-reading and cold-reading performance,The London Magician will talk about, and demonstrate, the mind-reading and magical effects that first flourished in the Victorian sťances hosted by fraudulent mediums -people who were emulating genuine psychics in parlours across England.

Meeting the dead, past-life regressions, amazing mind-reading, apports - the fraudulent mediums were the forefathers of the cold reading prodigies of today. But more than being told, you will be shown: magic will be performed, minds read, tales and fortunes told.

Illusion, mentalism and conjuring meet, through a glass darkly.
