About the WMA

The Wessex Magical Association was formed in October 1932 at Gatti's restaurant, Bournemouth, a venue that remained its headquarters for some years. Rex Gatti, the restaurant's proprietor, was the WMA's first Treasurer. The Great Nixon, who owned Nixon's Magical Depot, Bournemouth's first shop to deal exclusively in magical equipment, was the first Secretary. Jasper Maskelyne was the first President. Read more.

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, and begin at 8.00pm at The Grasshopper, 141 Bournemouth Road, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset  BH14 9HTView Map.
Guests are admitted to meetings by invitation only, but most of our members are only too happy to oblige. Visiting magicians are invited to contact the Secretary when in the area.

Would-be members should contact the President or Secretary.  Entry to full membership (after six months as associate member) is by audition.
