This Thursday we are pleased to welcome Danny Hunt and Annette Claire. Danny and Annette, collectively known as Amethyst, have appeared numerous times at the club performing their award winning illusion act, but now they will return to give a demonstration and talk on escapology.
Amethyst take inspiration from Harry Houdini and have become well known for their daring recreations of his cell escapes. Their feats include escaping from the condemned cell in the Castle Museum - York, Ripon's Liberty Gaol and the Castle Keep in Newcastle. They have also accepted many other challenging feats, such as Danny hanging upside down by his ankles high above a crowd, bound in a strait jacket, escaping from a tank filled with 55 gallons of water and risked being torn apart by 2 trucks as well as accepting challenges from several police and law enforcement agencies and various underwater escapes.
