Noel Quarter
Noel is a professional magician and magic consultant for Objective Productions advising on shows such as Help My Supply Teacher is Magic and Killer Magic. In his almost 15 years as a professional magician he's performed several stints at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, at the Harry Potter wrap party and a private show for Saudi Royal family with armed guards watching on.

He was awarded the Magic Circle Originality prize for 2014, 2015 and 2016. He has released several products to the magic community including Alarmed and iDeck.

In this lecture he will share his inventive close up magic which has a strong focus on quirky humour. From classic magic plots to wildly original premises there is something for all fans of close up magic. About. 50/50 card to non card material.
