A Gift from Prince Albert to Magician Professor Anderson

"Presented by Prince Albert to Professor Anderson in testimony of the prince's approval of the classical arrangements of the Grand Fete in conjunction with Professor Anderson's own extraordinary performances on the occasion of Prince Albert's birthday 26th of August, 1849."

(John Henry Anderson, known worldwide as “The Wizard of the North” was a Scottish magician. He performed for Prince Albert and Queen Victoria at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. He also performed for them in London the very same year.)

Please Join me in Charles Dickens Parlor the next four Sundays Performing in a different venue than our San Francisco Magic Parlor!

Show Times for my Magical Dickens Fair appearance

This First Weekend of the Dickens Fair I’ll be doing shows at
11:30am and 5:00pm on Sunday.

In the following 4 weeks we may add a mid-afternoon show as well.

A reminder that the Dickens Family Parlor is very small so I recommend getting into the queue early on.
Hope to see you! — 

at The Great Dickens Christmas Fair.

Here I am (invisible) performing in front of the fireplace in the Dickens Family Parlor...

You'll be a Wizard too!

Longtime friend, colleague, and wizard, Tobias Beckwith’s book “The Wizard’s Way” has gone to press. I’ve had the privilege of following his journey from concept to fruition. 

If you’d like to “become a wizard” transforming your personal or professional life, check out his Kickstarter project that will allow you to snag and autographed copy hot off the press.

Magic at The Great Dickens Christmas Fair!

Purported to be the first to produce a rabbit from his top hat, Scottish Conjurer, Professor John Henry Anderson (dubbed by Sir Walter Scott “The Great Wizard of the North”) Performed for Queen Victoria in 1849. He enjoyed a successful engagement at Covent Gardens in 1855.

On a return visit to London in 1858 he resided with the Charles Dickens family over the Holidays. Professor Anderson shared a few of his assorted Wonders for party guests on that Christmas Eve.

You may be welcomed into the Dickens Parlour as well. Simply attend one of the Five Sundays at “The Great Dickens Fair & Holiday Victorian Holiday Party” in the Cow Palace. November 23, 30 and December 7, 14, 21st.  Parlour seating is extremely limited!
