We’re super happy and fortunate to be hosting none other than Kainoa Harbottle 😀. This absolute master of coin magic (among many other disciplines) will be here in Victoria for your viewing pleasure on Sunday February 28 at the Harbor Towers Hotel at 7pm. Cost is still only $20 for members and $40 for non-members. Either way it’s a steal of a deal, so Mark your calendars and be sure to show your VMC support by coming out and learning from our first guest of the year.
Gregory Wilson will be at the Langford Fire Hall for a lecture Tuesday November 3 at 7:30 pm $20 for members and $40 for guests. This will be a lecture you will not want to miss.
Gregory Wilson is a professional thief and world class sleight-of-hand expert. For over 25 years, in over 50 different countries, he has astonished audiences with his con artistry and unexplainable psychological deceptions.
A two-time FISM award winner, Gregory Wilson is much more than a magician. He calls himself a “deceptionist” who breaks laws and stereotypes at the same time!
As a world-class sleight of hand/con artist, he earns his laughs and his living on stage, with a perfect blend of magic, illusion, comedy and audience involvement.
A prolific creator, he is responsible for a long list of best-selling commercial releases, including:
* Hundy 500

* Ring Leader
* Exact Change
He has also released several classic DVDs, including:
* On The Spot
