Peter and Richard here……we are delighted to announce that The Edinburgh Secret Society is opening its doors again … on 9th June! Tickets for this event will be £8 and go on sale on this site at 10 a.m. on Thursday 23 May 2013.
It’s been a while, but we’ve been remarkably busy with many weird and wonderful things (which shall be revealed when the time is right). Meanwhile, to keep you going, we have arranged an extraordinary evening to nourish your mind, body and soul.
We are truly excited because we have managed to attract the astonishing mind of Arthur Benjamin. Arthur travels the world performing his mind-blowing feats of mathematical marvels. He is unique, and this is a unique opportunity to see a LIVE demonstration by a master showman who has headlined at TED, appeared on the Colbert Report, and performed in several other countries (but never here before). You will not believe what Arthur can do. Count on it. Seriously.
We also have convinced magician and body language expert, Richard McDougall, to travel up from London just for us. Richard is a former World Open Champion for Close Up Magic, and has performed for The Queen, Paul Getty and Paul McCartney. He is going to reveal some deep secrets, not simply about how magic works, but about how we communicate with our bodies. Not our bodies specifically, your bodies,
all of us, everyone’s bodies …
And, having stimulated mind and body, you will be able to feed your soul with the deeply weird and wonderful music of The Creative Martyrs (‘Dark as the inside of a black hat’).
And, as always, there shall be other treats, but enough said …
There is no recording allowed at any of our events, and so if you want to find out what happens you have to be there.
The show will take place in Edinburgh University’s Anatomy Lecture Theatre. Built in the late 1880s, this amazing venue contains steeply raked seats rising above a central dissecting table, and has been home to many infamous cadavers.
The show will take place on 9th June, between 7.30 p.m. until about 9.00 p.m. Tickets will go on sale on this site at 10 a.m. on Thursday 23 May 2012. But remember to be quick because all of our events have sold out very quickly.
