London Magician Peter Mennie

From time to time, London Magician Peter Mennie drops by to visit our magic counter at McCullochs. He has been a professional magician in South Western Ontario for a long time. He holds a local record for performances at London’s annual Wester Fair. The same record also applies to Rogers Cable Tv. He has appeared on Rogers Daytime more than any other magician. Peter has been a regular sight at McCullochs since 1968. It was then that he bought his first magic prop. It was a vanishing milk pitcher.

From the Peter Mennie Official Blog: “My dad and I went in and for me, it was like a kid in a candy store – or a boy in a magic shop! Dozens of cool props and I had no idea what any of them were. The man behind the counter, Don McCulloch explain to me what each trick did and I finally zeroed in on the Milk Vanishing Pitcher. I used that prop for years vanishing milk, chocolate milk, juice, water until it finally wore out. I don’t have the original prop (I did for 30 or more years), but I do still have a Milk Vanishing pitcher – even for just the sentimental value.”

The Vanishing Milk Pitcher is still being sold at McCullochs all these years later. It remains a popular trick for local magicians. That goes for both professional magicians as well as new amateur performers. Its an easy illusion to perform. Therefore its perfect for budding magicians who want to learn magic in London. Drop into McCullochs Costume and Party Supply on Dundas street to learn more. The magic counter features many magic tricks for professionals. They also carry magic kits for beginners.
