Magician of the Year

Current President

Darren McDonald


It was an honour to be asked to be president of this great club for 2018.  I have attended the club for over 15 years and always try my best to promote the club and make it accessible to all.  I am not a professional magician and the knowledge we receive through the MCM is paramount to all of our development as magicians.

At 29 I am the youngest president to date and hope to encourage the next generation of magicians to learn our art by learning from our lecturers and our membership whom are some of the most knowledgeable magicians in the country.  We have an outstanding programme of lectures planned for 2018 and I look forward to introducing them all to you.

I hope to continue in Carole’s footsteps and make sure MCM retains its place at the forefront of magic across the North of England and the UK.
