Simon Drake – International Magic Convention – Lecture and Gala Show Performance

July 30th, 2012 by Magic Convention Guide

Simon DrakeInternational Magic are thrilled to announce that Simon Drake will be giving his first ever live lecture at their annual Convention later this year at The Mermaid Theatre (November 16-18 2012).

Simon has been at the forefront of magic developments over the last twenty three years from his creation and starring role in the ground breaking TV series, ‘The Secret Cabaret’ where his dark, Grand Guignol presentations stood out dramatically from the other glossy packaged magic shows, to the creation of his own venue the ‘The House of Magic‘ where audiences are fully immersed in an evening of enchanting magic and original illusions set in his fantasy world of mystery and intrigue.

Noel Britten, who co-organises the Convention says

“His full-time involvement with this unique, magical venue has kept Simon below the magical radar for the last few years. If you do not know of his work I’d suggest you check out some of his beautifully macabre routines he performed with Iron Maiden

and his more classy, timeless work:

Alongside his lecture where Simon will be tipping some of the secrets of his signature effects, he will also be performing a short special guest spot in the Gala Show – two more reasons – as if appearances by Juan Tamariz, Eric Mead, Jeff McBride and Joanie Spina aren’t enough! – that will make this weekend unmissable.”
