A world-famous magician will be performing at the University of York tomorrow.

Garrett Thomas, a professional magician and the mentor and consultant of influential magicians such as David Blaine, will be giving a special show to members of the University of York’s Magic Society at 8pm tomorrow.

Based in New York, Mr. Thomas is a close-up magician and author of several instruction guides to magic. He specialises in card and ring magic. Mr. Thomas is also a regular contributor to magic-based journals, such as the Society of American Magicians, as well as a lecturer on magic and a regular attendant of magic conventions.

The Magic Society informed subscribers to its newsletter that the magician, whom the committee “consider to be one of the best, if not the best magician in the world,” will perform his typical routine, followed by a question and answer session.

The performance, hosted in P/L/002, will also be open to non-members of the Magic Society.

The Chair of Magic Society, Toby Walker, told The Yorker, “We are thrilled to be hosting a magician as renowned and skilled as Garrett Thomas.”
