John Field was admitted as a solicitor in 1976 and has practised law ever since. However he gave his first stage show as a magician in 1965 and has been performing magic for longer than he has been practising law! For over 30 years he has delivered a talk on the History of Magic which as well as being educational, is highly entertaining, with a practical demonstration of different styles of magic being presented throughout the talk. He has raised thousands of pounds for charities with this talk. John also has two talks on the life of Harry Houdini, which includes film and audio clips of the great showman as well as talks on Chung Ling Soo, shot and killed on stage in the middle of a trick in North London, Alexander (The Man Who Knows) an American mind-reader, murderer and bigamist, The Piddingtons, a sensational husband and wife telepathy act that took Britain by storm in the 1950s and two stars of British TV, David Nixon and Tommy Cooper.
John is an Associate Member of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star, one of the highest degrees in magic held by about 350 people worldwide.
