In-House Lecture - Numbers Magic
Here's a treat! Our very own Alan Jackson will tonight, ladies and gentlemen, be giving a lecture on 'Number Magic'.
Don't fret though if you're not too good on the abacus... Alan assures us that no mathematical skill or knowledge is needed beyond the ability to add two numbers together, like 5 and 3 (and most tricks don’t even need that).
Alan will be showing us some of the tricks up his sleeves, and these will include:
- a book test,
- two snooker-related tricks (no knowledge of snooker needed),
- tricks which simulate having an exceptional memory and arithmetic skills (no memory or arithmetical skills needed),
- a dice trick,
- a prediction effect,
- a coin trick which does not use coins (no, this is not a misprint),
- the best bar bet ever.
Need more convincing? There are FREE lecture notes, and the chance to win £10!! (Although... not much of a chance...).
We hope to see you there in vast numbers. We'll be counting...
