Joshua Jay UK Lecture Tour
By Joshua Jay - Thursday, August 15, 2019
I'm so, so excited to be coming back to the UK for the first time in a decade, to do a very small tour of lectures. The last time I did this was 2006, and I'm thrilled to be back doing a mixture of new and older material. The focus will be on parlor magic, since that's what I'm passionate about at the moment, but I will, of course, also be doing close-up material. It will be a mixture of completely impromptu things that haven't been in print, plus some things that I've released and am excited for you to see in person.
As always, the focus is on the evolution of these pieces. My tricks take years to get to a place where I feel good sharing them, and each piece is the result of lots of little breakthroughs. It will be my pleasure to take you through my process, my failures, and ultimately, why I designed each trick the way I perform it. Whether you're putting together your first show or you're looking for inspiration for your next one, I think you'll find much of interest.
Below you'll find each lecture and date, as well as location and an email contact. It would be great if you emailed these contacts to reserve your place, as some lectures will sell out in advance, and a few clubs execute non-members on sight.
