USM Dinner & Paul Nardini Night Reviewed

Last Saturday week saw the USM host their annual dinner which was coupled with a day time lecture and evening performance by Paul Nardini.  IrishMagicNews' correspondent up north, Nicola Cunningham was there to report on matters.
"On Saturday 12th March it was that time of year again when the Ulster Society of Magician’s all get together to celebrate another year in Magic as a club. This year, our Chairman, Caolan McBride and the committee had loads of treats installed for both Magician’s and muggles alike.
 
The event was held in Malone Lodge hotel in Belfast which was a fine venue for all the Magical goings on. And who better to bring over to join our festivities other than Paul Nardini, member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, and with his wife Mhari billed as The Great Nardini, best comedy act and winner of 2003 FISM Championships to perform his lecture for the club during the afternoon and then perform his cabaret act in the evening as part of the festivities. Everyone who attended his lecture will agree with me that Paul’s lecture was highly entertaining and filled with extremely useful stuff. Paul was very charismatic and when listening to his advice and talking to him both during the lecture and in between it, I think we all would agree that Paul was a really dead on guy who absolutely loves Magic. I think we all learned a great deal from him as a professional performer.

Then for the dinner. This year we decided not only to have the main act perform in the evening but we also asked younger and more experienced members of the society to perform close up magic around the tables during dinner, so that non-members could see the talented magician’s that our own society have. This was a very successful idea and really helped lead into the main event, Paul Nardini. 

Nardini’s stage act was again highly entertaining, very visual and hilarious. Doing tricks with money, cards and his mind, Nardini really brought variety to the stage and everyone will agree that it was a great performance and smashing end to the night."
