"On behalf of The Magic Circle, which was so proud to have Mark Wilson MIMC as an Honorary Member, I send our sincerest condolences at such a sad time. Mark’s work was groundbreaking and opened doors and started careers for so many. He not only opened doors in the early days of TV but wedged them so firmly that way, that generations of magicians have benefitted from his initial foray into this medium. I know that his son Greg will hold the family torch strongly and proudly on stage. All our love to Nani, Greg and Mike and all the family." Noel Britten MIMC President.

In August 1967 the Jersey Sun newspaper challenged Magic Circle member and escapologist Bunny Neill to free himself from being locked in a sack and sealed in a packing crate in the harbour of St Helier. Not all went to plan as the sea was very choppy that day and he almost didn’t make it. #magic #magichistory #escapology @ The Magic Circle
