--------------------------------------------------

During the 1960s and 70s, David Nixon was the best known magician in the UK and one of the most popular TV personalities. He was also inspirational in shaping Steve Short’s career as a professional magician.

David was born at Muswell Hill, North London on 29 December 1919 and for more than twenty years, millions of British television viewers tuned in to watch him perform his true wizardary. As a panellist on ‘What’s My Line? ‘or as the host of ‘It’s Magic’ and many other shows, David Nixon was not just a magician, but a peerless performer whose warmth and wit made him a natural star.

Steve has already told his hero’s remarkable life story in a highly acclaimed book, David Nixon: Entertainer with the Magic Touch, that he worked on with Edwin A Dawes. Now be part of the illusion as he brings Nixon’s story to life with a fascinating audio-visual presentation that explains how David’s childhood fascination with conjuring tricks led to wartime adventures with ENSA, and how he rose from running concert parties to being the nation’s best-loved star.

This presentation includes a magical routine that David featured in his shows performed by Steve and will bring memories of him flooding back to anyone old enough to remember David Nixon’s charismatic appearances on our television screens.

For more than twenty years, millions of British television viewers tuned in to watch a true wizard at work. As a panellist on What's My Line? or as the host of It's Magic and many other shows, David Nixon was not just a magician, but a peerless performer whose warmth and wit made him a natural star.
David Nixon: Entertainer with the Magic Touch tells the story of a remarkable life: how David's childhood fascination with conjuring tricks led to wartime adventures with ENSA, and how he rose from running concert parties to being the nation's best-loved star.

David's personal life was one touched by tragedy. Yet for all his mastery of illusion - the mind-reading Nap Hand card trick or the mysterious mid-air disappearance of a lady in the Dizzy Limit - the easygoing on-screen image that made him a friend to every viewer was no deception, but a true reflection of a hardworking optimist who lived to entertain.
