Founded in 1997 and originally called The Glasgow School of Magic, we were born in the back room of the "Annakadabra"
Magic shop in the High Street Glasgow.
From our inception we forged a new approach in club magic throughout Scotland. Unlike others we opened our
youngsters, and what rewards they have brought us.

Our interview panel provides a fair and unbiased verdict on all applicants from aged eight upwards. The club prides it self
on being friendly, helpful and above all entertaining and we all participate eagerly in shows for various
charities and hospitals.
During the years we have produced and staged shows in theatres, schools and church halls resulting in more than. £10,000 being raised for good causes throughout Scotland.
Our move to Next Generation in Anniesland allows the club to continue to plan for more exciting shows and events for the future. An excellent venue with superb facilities.
From our humble beginnings the club has grown into a true force on the Scottish magical scene. With a growing membership, a superb venue, talented youngsters, and innovative creative magicians on hand throughout the year, our future looks assured.
Magic has been around for thousands of years but with the recent advent of books and films such as Harry Potter and
Lord of The Rings its popularity is spreading rapidly. We believe that, in the West of Scotland at least, we are helping to
spearhead the way forward for future generations of aspiring magicians.
Below are the badges used by the club. The middle badge "Tree Design"
was only used during the year of our first convention but was considered to
elaborate for club sweatshirt's and badges.
The third badge was adopted in 2003.
