Changes

The Committee endeavours to present the programme as indicated, but changes on short notice may be required.

Join Us

The Medway Magical Society welcomes anyone with a genuine interest in magic to join us.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the meeting of the Society are now being held on-line, via Zoom, and, when practicable, face-to-face meetings are made available on the same platform. This provides an opportunity for those living at some distance to become involved, and a number of magicians have chosen to do so.

 

Affiliation

The simplest way to join the Society is as an Affiliate. This is a quick and easy way to become involved in the programme. It is normally available only to those living at some distance from Medway, and who are, therefore, likely only to participate in meetings remotely.

An Affiliate can attend lectures, take part in theme nights and jam sessions, and enter competitions. There are no additional charges for taking part in any event, except on the rare occassion when Members have to pay, for example for a special lecture, and Affiliates will have to pay the same amount to attend.

To become an Affiliate all that is required is the completion of the Application form, including confirming a genuine interest in magic and agreeing not to share secrets, and the payment of the fee to cover either one year or six months.

The current fee (January 2022) to be an Affiliate is £35.00 for one year or £25.00 for six months.

 

Membership

To become a full Member of the Society requires demonstration of competence in the performance of magic. Members are expected to support the Society and contribute to its programme by, for example, regularly taking an active role in meetings, entering competitions, participating in charity shows, and serving on the Committee if asked.

Prospective Members will be interviewed by a member of the Committee, and will be asked to demonstrate their interest in magic, usually by performing one or more tricks that they have learned.

Those new to the club start as Associates. In order to progress to being a Member, an Associate must perform magic at at least one Society Meeting. Such performance(s) will be assessed by the Committee and, if found to be satisfactory, then Membership will be granted.

An Associate has six months in which to become a Member. In special circumstance, the Committee may extend this period.

All those joining the Society are required to make the following declaration:

I promise not to reveal the secrets and principles of magic to any persons other than fellow magicians.

I also promise not to copy and use any other magician's original effects, acts, routines or presentations, without their permission.

I agree to abide by the rules of the Medway Magical Society.

Alternatively, click HERE for a pdf of the applicaton form.

The membership subscription is £35.00 for the 2022 calendar year. This has been reduced from the normal fee of £50.00 as we are unable to hold a full programme of face-to-face meetings.

Meetings

The Society's regular meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month, with some exceptions, commencing at 20:00. Whenever possible they are held 'in-person,' with our current venue being The George, City Way, Rochester ME1 2BH (map). The meetings are usually broadcast on Zoom, for the benefit of Members and Associates who cannot be there. Ocassionally, meetings are held via Zoom.

Admission to most of the Society's meetings is restricted; however, some are open to non-magicians (marked 'OPEN' in the list of events). Members of other bona fide magic societies are generally welcome at meetings - please contact a member of the Committee for an invitation.
