29th New Zealand International Magicians Convention update #5

Pleased to announce that Steve Walker has been added to the convention headliners


Steve's Brief CV

Steve Walkeris an UNREALIST......a conglomerate yet cohesive concoction of consummate competence and considerable craft carefully contrived to captivate the conjuring connoisseur yet confound the castigator.

Born near the sun-drenched tropical beaches of Yorkshire in England he moved to Sydney, Australia where he earned a reputation as one of the countries slowest rising magicians.

Winning many National Awards for both his stage and close-up sleight of hand magic, he appeared on many TV shows and didn't appear on many more!

He was the resident magician on the Channel 7 "Reach for a Rainbow" TV show for 5 years and was invited to Reno, Nevada to appear on "The World's Biggest Stage" at The Hilton Hotel Casino where he was M.C. on the Gala Show at the International Brotherhood of Magician's annual convention.

On returning to Australia he is now kept busy with Cruises, Corporate and Trade Shows before he flies off to Hollywood, California in August to appear yet again at the World Famous Magic Castle
