Paul Richards
As founder and former owner of Elmwood Magic, Paul worked quietly behind the scenes to polish and produce magic with a long list of industry notables including: Jay Sankey, Peter Duffie, Cameron Francis, Mark Elsdon, Joshua Jay, and Jon Allen - just to name a few. In 2014, Paul sold his business to focus solely on performing and creating magic. It was then he decided to try something unusual for a 21st century business – he took everything offline. Since that time all of his creations are available ONLY direct from Paul at LIVE events, nothing is sold online – not even on his own website!
Paul says of this unorthodox approach, “I like having something special to show when I’m standing in front of a group of magicians. I remember as a kid going to a shop or convention and seeing miracles I had never seen before. I’m trying to foster that same feeling for modern day magicians.” It’s definitely been a popular move. That’s why you’ll see Paul's booth crowded by magicians at events across the globe - but don’t think you are in for a “dealer lecture” -  far from it! His lecture is jam packed with real world magic that you will be able to do immediately.

Each of David's performances is specifically adapted to captivate the audience at hand. From death-defying stunts to clean comedy and juggling, David Darwin does it all. He is the juggling contortionist who can astound you with song, skill and captivating surprises.
