Two Magicians and a Dream!

Founded by magicians Dave Morris and Colin Holt, the Victoria School of Magic has a simple mandate: To teach and inspire a new generation magicians. Our courses are designed to take students through the very basics of magic and work up to the more complicated sleights that professional magicians use everyday. It‘s the perfect way to take an interest and turn it into a hobby, or to take a hobby and turn it into a life-long passion.

We put the magic into your hands.
