To beat the January blues, Paisley & District u3a members can watch a live magic.

Guest artist and Magic Circle member, Billy Reid will perform amazing card, cash and coin tricks guaranteed to wow the audience. This free jaw dropping session starts at 2pm in the Salvation Army Hall in Mill Street, Paisley- doors open 1.30pm.

U3a chair, Kathy O’Donnell remarked: “We may want to figure out how tricks work but mostly we love the sheer wonder of magic.

“There’s genuine delight even as people are trying to understand how an item managed to appear or disappear in front of their eyes. As Billy Reid begins his act, we’ll be surprised and intrigued to see just how he does it. I’m not sure he will share the secrets of his trade but we’ll still ask him after the show!”

Magician Billy Reid said: “As we grow up, much of the world loses that sense of childlike wonder and intrigue.

“Being able to bring that back to people using magic, sleight-of-hand and storytelling is just wonderful, and is the main reason I love doing what I do!”
