THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY
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 séances 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.
