Thank you for visiting the Wonderful World of Magic
One of Scotland’s most accomplished magical entertainers, award winning Alan Duncan, invites you into the wonderful world of magic.
For more than three decades he has been perfecting and performing the art of magic and illusion to audiences throughout the UK.
He became interested at a young age when his father bought him the classic old “Ball and Vase” trick. As a five year old he was fascinated - and even at that young age he became determined to learn more and more. Books played no part in his magic education --- he spent hours each day practising card manipulation and creating his own versions of standard routines.
Winning his first major competition as a 16 year old set him on the path to becoming a full time professional magician. After several years touring the UK he eventually opened a shop with the prestigious address of 1 Piccadilly Circus, London selling and demonstrating magic tricks to tourists from all corners of the globe. The late Princess Diana was an occasional visitor along with her infant sons Prince William and his brother Prince Harry……
During his career Alan has performed at special functions in some of the world’s best known hotel chains- The Hilton and the Marriott amongst others but the crowning glories must surely be appearing at The Magic Castle in California and The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
Alan has taken his magic to most European countries
Now based back in his home town of Glasgow in Scotland he is in constant demand both as a performer and teacher.
He now brings to a world wide audience through the internet the opportunity to learn standard and classic magic tricks.
