Charles Dickens, Conjuror

July 8 @ 8:00 pm


Charles Dickens, Conjuror

Thurs 8 July, 8pm, on Zoom


Charles Dickens was an amateur conjurer for around seven years of his life.  His best known show was on the Isle of Wight in 1849; when he wrote a highly amusing, and informative playbill to promote this show.  This playbill, where Dickens called himself the ‘Unparalleled Necromancer’, provides the focus to learn about how Dickens became a conjurer, which magicians inspired him, and how his, magic sheds light both on his character and his writings. 

The title “the secret world of Charles Dickens, mirth marvels and the mysterious” was his one man full length show. The talk came out of that show. 

Any questions are allowed – apart from ‘how do you do it!?’
