The Zodiac Magical Society was formed on 2 April 1946 by Dick Chavel and Napier Bye with about a dozen members. Today we have a membership of over 70 consisting of full time professional entertainers, semi-pros and, of course, a large number of members for whom magic is just a very pleasant and absorbing hobby.

Our monthly magazine, ‘THE ZODIAC’, has been going for over 40 years; and not a single issue has been omitted in its history. It started as a hard copied sheet & evolved and grew over time; under the sole direction of just one person, our President Emeritus, the late Freddie Firth. In 2007, when Peter Pinner became editor, it moved to an online publication and continues to grow in quality and content.

We meet each Wednesday in Ealing, London, UK and are very proud of our reputation in the magic world as one of the most active and friendly magic clubs in the country.
