Monday, March 26, 7 PM - Chris Rawlins Lecture 

Chris Rawlins is a 27 year old Mind Reader and Performer, based in Manchester, England. Performing professionally since leaving university Chris’s approach to performing is no nonsense, direct and reliable. So far throughout his career as a performer Chris has spoken at The Session Convention, The Event, given a Penguin Live lecture, and At The Table. He has also featured in Magic and Genii magazine and released various books, manuscripts and effects to the community. His work is always very well received and highly praised. Outside of the magic world Chris has toured extensively as Luke Jermay’s opening act and core team member around the UK and Europe. Alongside this Chris earns his living performing for private and corporate clients. 


"Chris is the real deal. Original presentations that will grab your audiences and not let go. Highly recommended." Bob Cassidy

"I’m a fan of Chris Rawlins, he knows how to create amazement and on this DVD he will inspire you to do the same!" Marc Paul

“Chris is a creative, original thinker and a truly great performer, his skills and talents mesmerised me. I highly recommend you all to see him in action.” - Uri Geller 

There are plenty of clients reviews (non-magic related) on his website: irememberthings.co.uk alongside many more images and some videos too, I’d suggest you take a look there to help you learn more about this excellent performer and to help you make your decision on booking his lecture.

Lecture Overview (Here I’m giving some specific effects and also a broader summary, as Chris has loads of material he lectures on, so it’s impossible to know exactly what he might have in his lecture in a few months from now). Throughout Chris’ lecture you will learn reliable, tested and workable material that Chris has performed hundreds of times in the real world.  

The lecture is all Mentalism, for the stage, close up and even casual situations.

  • Chris will teach his approach to the stage drawing duplication and show you how you can apply this in ways never tipped before, that allow you to create the impression that you can know thought of images from audience members that they never physically draw, finishing with a perfect duplication of spectators physical drawing. 
  • You will learn how to appear to memorize a complete and shuffled deck of cards in an engaging, very real feeling demonstration of memory that requires no memory. 
  • Chris will tip his go to opening routine ‘In This Order’, a chair prediction with a purpose and premise. 
  • You will learn how to have one spectator find another spectators thought of playing card with their eyes closed.
  • There will also be Mentalism taught for casual situations alongside bitesize chunks of Theory. 

All the material in the lecture is taught will full crediting and in great depth in a way that is entertaining and engaging.  

Free for members. $20 for guests.
