Does The 1952 Hypnotism Act Apply to Street Hypnosis in England? – Is Street & Stage Hypnosis Illegal? – How Can I Perform 100% Legally, Lawfully, Ethically, SAFELY & in an INSURED manner Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere Even in Towns, Cities and Countries Where “Hypnosis” is Apparently Banned and ILLEGAL? Jonathan Royle & Friends Reveal All in The Transparency Template Home Study Course.

WHAT DO I REALLY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STREET & STAGE HYPNOSIS? 

Well let me point out straight away that I have nothing against Street Hypnosis or Stage Hypnosis just so long that it is performed in a manner which is 100% Legal, Lawful, Licensed (where that’s the only legal and lawful option), Insured, Risk Assessments are in place and things are done in  A SAFE & ETHICAL MANNER…

The same applies to those people teaching Street & Stage Hypnosis, I have nothing personal against them as human beings (or the individuals they teach) and indeed never have have held anything personal against them.. 

However I cannot abide people who are training and/or doing Street or Stage Hypnosis in any manner that is not fully legal, lawful, Ethical, Insured and above all else SAFE… 

Sadly there is way to much complacency occurring amongst Street & Stage Hypnotists (and those training them) The Transparency Template Home Study Course aims to set the record straight on everything and make the industry a far SAFER one to work or play within…

THE TRANSPARENCY TEMPLATE – Jonathan Royle & Friends..

For those doubting Thomas’s who seem to think this is not an issue for them (which sadly most UK Street Hypnotists seem to think there are no laws applying to them) then look at the few random examples below from the 100’s that I have on file which prove that STREET HYPNOSIS (just like Stage Hypnosis) is indeed covered by the 1952 Hypnotism Act.

Here’s What U.K Councils and there Legal Licensing Departments have to say about Street Hypnotism and whether they’d grant a License for it under the 1952 Hypnotism Act – These are just 44 Randomly Selected Councils out of the 450+ I contacted… (many more replies on file also And All The Replies IN their Full Detailed Format Are Included As Part of The Transparency Package)

Aberdeen City Council (Scotland) Said:

“As Yet We Have not dealt with any requests for Street Hypnotism, nor are We aware of any such incidents having occurred in Aberdeenshire. I can confirm that it would be our position that such performances would also require permission under the 1952 Hypnotism Act”

Allerdale Council Said:

“Allerdale Borough Council would consider any application for exhibition, demonstration or performance of Hypnotism on its own merits including those for Street Hypnotism”

Ambervalley Council Said:

“The Council has to treat each application, including those for Street Hypnosis under the 1952 Hypnotism Act on its own merits and full details of the application would need to be ascertained before a final decision is made.”

Angus Council Said:

“With regard to the location of exhibitions, demonstrations or performances of hypnotism, Angus Council has no policy limiting the places where such demonstrations may take place. However being required to consider each application on its merits, the proposed location would be given consideration by the Council in determining applications before them. This would include applications in relation to premises with an alcohol licence, or streets.”

Ayelesbury Vale Council Said:

“Recalling the standards required for the few performances we have authorised, my intuition is that a ‘random’ street performance would not be appropriate.”

Bristol Council Said:

“I am a licensing co-ordinator with Bristol City Council. We were recently approached by an individual enquiring as to whether he needed a licence to hold hypnotism on the street. He was firmly advised that we would not grant permission for any open air demonstration or performance of hypnotism for the very reasons you have referred to. Lack of control over who may be affected, influences not being properly removed from subjects, lack of insurance cover, etc, etc. Currently in Bristol we would not countenance issuing a permission of hypnotism in the street”

Barking & Dagenham Council Said:

“We would refuse permission for Street Hypnosis under the 1952 Hypnotism Act and consider enforcement action”

Barrow Council Said:

  1. “We would refuse to grant permission for Street Hypnosis under the 1952 Hypnotism Act”Boston Council Said:

    “Yes, no person shall give an exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism unless the Local Authority has authorised the activity.  The Hypnotism Act 1952 does not define “any place” beyond it being a place to which the public are admitted, whether on payment or otherwise, and therefore this could include a place which is outdoors.  Under the Licensing Act 2003 ‘any place’ includes places outdoors.”

Brent Council Said:

“The chances of us granting a licence for Street Hypnosis is highly unlikely and we would look to prosecute those who did not have such a license”

Broxtowe Council Said:

“It is unlikely that such performances by street hypnotists would comply with current conditions so permission would not be granted”

Calderdale Council Said:

“Any application, including those for Street Hypnosis would be considered and granted or refused in accordance with the 1952 Hypnotism Act and health and safety considerations”

Canterbury Council Said:

“We would not grant permission for Street Hypnosis”

Doncaster Council Said:

“Permission would be granted for Street Hypnosis”

Dover Council Said:

“Whilst each application must be considered on its individual merits I feel it is unlikely that any performance of street hypnotism would be permitted as it would be difficult to comply with the requirement that the performer is on hand for 30 minutes after the performance to resolve any issues that arise with the subjects being hypnotised.”

East Herts Council Said:

“It is unlikely that we would grant permission under the 1952 Hypnotism Act for Street Hypnosis to take place.  It would be for them to demonstrate to us by way of risk assessments etc that there was no risk to public safety.”

Enfield Council Said:

The Hypnotism Act 1952 provides that “no person shall give an exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism on any living person at or in connection with an entertainment to which the public are admitted, whether on payment or otherwise, at any place in relation to which [a premises licence under the Licensing Act 2003] is not in force unless the controlling authority have authorised that exhibition, demonstration or performance.” Any person wishing to give hypnotism in unlicensed places would require an authorisation from the Council, as licensing authority. The fee to apply for an authorisation is £100. The Council considers all applications (including those for street Hypnosis) on their own merits.”

Fareham Council Said:

“For the same reasons that hypnotism is not permitted as an entertainment in any of the licensed premises, it would also not be permitted in the street people found to be carrying out such procedures would be reported to the Police for carrying out an illegal activity under the 1952 Hypnotism Act.”

Great Yarmouth Council Said:

“Any person wishing to demonstrate any type of performance of hypnotism would only be permitted to do so within the Great Yarmouth Borough if consent for such a performance has been granted prior to the performance by the Local Authority.  Any such grant of consent would of course be subject to the applicant producing the relevant satisfactory public liability insurance and a satisfactory comment from the police, to whom a copy of the application for consent is sent.”

Gwent Council Said:

“I have not answered each and every question in detail as we are not aware of any instances of such street hypnotism taking place in this County Borough. In the event of this situation arising we would judge each case on its merits and take the appropriate action at that time. It is my understanding however that exhibitions, demonstrations or performances of hypnotism on any person, requires the express written consent of the Licensing Authority under the above 1952 Hypnotism Act.”

Hartlepool Council Said:

“Any application for such a demonstration would be considered on its merits. There is no blanket ban on street demonstrations within this borough but neither has any such permission ever been sought.”

Havant Council Said:

“On the face of it, there is no reason why we would not grant a License for Street Hypnosis under the 1952 Hypnotism Act, but there may also be other considerations if they are on the street such as obstruction of the highway etc.”

Hertsmere Council Said:

“It would be unlikely that we would agree to issue a license for Street Hypnosis”

Lambeth Council Said:

“It is difficult to assess hypothetical situations of people applying for a License under the 1952 Hypnotism Act for Street Hypnosis. However any application would be treated on its own merit, and in line with any published Home Office guidance.”

Lancaster Council Said:

“Any performance of hypnotism that was to be carried out in the Lacaster City Council District, wouuld have to be licensed under the Hypnotism Act 1952.  All applications would be considered by the licensing committee, and all performers would have to provide proof of the appropriate insurance.  Appropriate enforcement action would be taken against anyone who provides any form of public entertainment without fiirst obtaining the correct licence.”

Milton Keynes Council Said:

“The Hypnotism Act 1952 covers demonstrations of hypnotism in premises that are licensed for entertainment under the Licensing Act 2003, in addition to the licence permitting regulated entertainment we would also require an application for a licence under the Hypnotism Act. One of the conditions of the grant of a licence under the Hypnotism Act is that the performer is covered by public liability insurance.  If an application is made to licence a demonstration of hypnotism at a place that is not licensed for regulated entertainment under the licensing Act as per the Hypnotism Act 1952 s2(1)we may authorise the exhibition, demonstration or performance as long as those consulted do not have any objections.

Newham Council Said:

“Newham would not knowingly allow a hypnotist to perform in the street given the risks to persons that could unwittingly be affected by the hypnotist.  There would be no safeguard to prevent someone in the near vicinity to the hypnotist being affected.”

North Kesteven Council Said:

“North Kesteven District Council does not have a formal policy on this.  Each application for authorisation would be considered on its own merits taking account of the guidance contained within the relevant Home Office Circulars.”

Nottingham City Council Said:

“I have just been forwarded your recent email enquiry concerning street hypnotists. I have for the past four years been responsible for busking and street entertainment inNottingham and operate a permit scheme for approved acts only. I have certainly never received a request from a hypnotist to perform in our city centre. I can confirm that my response to such a request would be not to issue a permit as I feel such an act is not suitable street entertainment and should be confined to professional performances to paying customers at an indoor venue. I can also confirm that if a street hypnotist was to appear in the city centre without the required permission he/she would be stopped from performing and moved on by our Community Protection Officers as they are fully aware that unless they have a permit issued by myself they are not allowed to perform. The performer would be advised to contact me to obtain a permit, which in the case of a hypnotist; I can assure you would not be granted.”

Nuneaton & Bedworth Council Said:

“It is not possible to give a definitive response to the question of whether we would grant a license for Street Hypnosis to take place under the 1952 Hypnotism Act  – each application must be considered on its own merits.  However before granting any consent the Council would need to be satisfied that adequate controls are in force to ensure the safety of all those participating in, or watching at a performance.”

Portsmouth Council Said:

“There would be further considerations to take into account if such an application for Street Hypnosis under the 1952 Hypnotism Act was made and we would consider such risks associated with this type of performance.  Without the benefit of further investigation it would not be possible for me to give an indication at this stage as to the likely outcome.”

Preston Council Said:

“In 1994 this Council resolved that applications received pursuant to the above Act for public performances of hypnotism be informed that the Council are not in favour of granting such permissions except in exceptional circumstances.”

Scarborough Council Said:

“Though not aware of any performances of street hypnotism taking place within the borough I can confirm that any exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism on any person requires the express written consent of the Licensing Authority.”

Sedgemoor Council Said:

“The Act does not define what is “any place” beyond it being a place to which the public are admitted, whether on payment or otherwise, and therefore it is conceivable that this includes an outdoor place, especially given that under the Licensing Act 2003 ‘any place’ is given a wide meaning.”

South Cambridgeshire Council Said:

“Regarding Street Hypnosis we would consider each request on its merits, however their would be a presumption of refusal unless good reason could be shown to decide otherwise.”

South Ribble Council Said:

“Following the death of an audience member of a Hypnosis Show in a local public house the Council decided to ban all hypnotism (unless for medical purposes) within the borough.”

St. Helens Council Said:

“We have not been approached to date regarding Street Hypnosis but would be unlikely to support such a proposal or application.”

Stevenage Borough Council Said:

“Within the Town Centre area ofStevenage, such performances would not be permitted. In any instance where it is their intention to stand in the street or other similar public place we would not normally grant any such permission as it is unlikely that the person applying would be able to guarantee that their performance would not attract an audience and/or participant that was over 18 years of age.”

Swindon Council Said:

“The partial repeal is rather messy, to say the least. The power to regulate hypnotism on licensed premises, using the public entertainment licence mechanism used to apply to Scotland, England and Wales. The repeal added ‘in Scotland’. Unequivocally, section 1 no longer applies in England and Wales. if you look at section 2 it says “place in relation to which such a licence as is mentioned in section 1 of this Act is not in force”. It may be taken that ‘such a licence’ is a licence issued ‘in Scotland’. Since we are not in Scotland it seems to follow that section 2 applies in England and Wales to all premises everywhere – including premises licensed under the Licensing Act 2003.

Wandsworth Council Said:

“We would not readily grant a hypnotism licence for a performance on the street or other public place but each application would be looked at on its individual merits.”

West Dorset Council Said:

“Each application for permission to carry out hypnotism demonstrations would be carried out on its own merits. We would require the applicant to adhere to the model conditions.  There is no definition of ‘any place’ and it may well therefore include a street.”

Wigan Council Said:

“Response – The Act makes reference to authorisation being required where the exhibition demonstration or performance of hypnotism takes place at or in connection with an entertainment to which the public are admitted, whether on payment or otherwise. The wording suggests that it was anticipated that hypnotism displays/performances would take place in a venue that provides entertainment e.g. venues with licences to provide regulated entertainment. It could therefore be argued that the street is not such a venue unless it is an open space that has been licensed for regulated entertainment. However, as the purpose of the Act is to regulate these activities with a view to protecting the public it is suggested that the interpretation of “takes place at or in connection with an entertainment to which the public are admitted, whether on payment or otherwise” can be extended to the street and that a licence is required in respect of hypnotism displays/performances on the street. Any application to hold a hypnotism performance in the street would be treated on its own merits.”

Wrexham Council Said:

“Permission for Hypnosis to take place would only be granted at specific locations which would not include open air or street.”

Westminster Council Said:

After further consideration of the proposals and after considering the interpretation of the 1952 Act Westminster City Council will require any person who wishes to give an exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism to any person within the Council’s area other than for premises that hold a licence for entertainment to apply for authorisation to give that exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism under section 2 of the Hypnotism Act 1952 (1952 Act).

Any person that wishes to obtain an authorisation would have to do so in writing. The requirements for such applications are set out in the attached document.

It should be noted that any application under section 2 of the 1952 Act will be subject to this procedure. However, in determining any such applications the Council may remove, amended or attach further conditions that would be appropriate to any authorisation.

Any applications received by Westminster City Council will be considered on their own merits and full consideration will be given to the applicants proposal.

I have notified the person who made the original vague enquiry that my initial response wasn’t correct.

A full detailed response has now been sent to them explaining the Council’s interpretation and process for considering such applications.

With relation to the information you have provided concerning unauthorised street hypnosis within Westminster City Council’s area. I have now passed all of your emails concerning this to our Licensing Inspectorate for their information and action.

They are now aware that there may be people in Westminster carrying out un authorised hypnotism over this bank holiday weekend and they will take the appropriate action if any person is identified committing an offence under the 1952 Act.

I hope this now addresses your concerns and now concludes this matter.

Yours sincerely

AND HERE IS A REPLY FROM CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your enquiry about public performances of hypnotism which I received on 20 April.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) cannot provide legal advice to the public.  Our legal advisors are solely responsible for advising our Ministers.  It would be for you to decide whether you wished to obtain your own independent legal advice on the matters you have raised.

That said, I am happy to provide general advice with regard to the Hypnotism Act 1952 and the Licensing Act 2003.

All public performances of hypnotism (i.e. hypnotism which is NOT carried out strictly for medical or scientific purposes but for the entertainment of an audience) is licensable under the Licensing Act 2003 and a premises licence or temporary event notice is required by law to cover such entertainment regardless of whether they take place indoors or outdoors (The 2003 Act does not define “any place” beyond it being a place to which the public are admitted).

The 2003 Act has delegated responsibility for administering and enforcing the new licensing regime to individual licensing authorities and I am therefore unable to offer specific advice on the cases you have referred to.

The Hypnotism Act 1952 was amended by the 2003 Act (Licensing Act 2003, Schedule 6, Minor and Consequential Amendments). Section 27 (c) (3A) states that “a function conferred by this section on a licensing authority, is, for the purposes of section 7 of the Licensing Act 2003 (exercise and delegation by licensing authority of licensing functions) to be treated as a licensing function within the meaning of that Act”.

Fourteen years ago, a review was carried out of the Hypnotism Act 1952 to see if any harm could be posed to members of the public from performances of stage hypnotism.  All those of a known interest were consulted.  The expert panel concluded that there was no evidence of serious harm to participants in hypnotism exhibitions and that any risk was small.  They nevertheless felt that the application of conditions to performances was necessary to ensure physical safety and to regulate hypnotic procedures.  Home Office circular 39/1996 set out revised model conditions, one of which stated that any stage performance of hypnotism should be covered to a reasonable level by public liability insurance and that hypnotists should provide evidence of this to the local authority if requested and have it available for inspection at the performance.

It is for local licensing authorities to decide how and to what extent they use this guidance and what conditions they may wish to impose, taking account of local conditions and concerns.  However, public safety is one of the four licensing objectives of the 2003 Act and I do not think the licensing authority would wish to compromise on a matter of this importance.  Under the 2003 Act, the licensing authority can attach whatever conditions they feel are appropriate for ensuring the licensing objectives, but only after any relevant representations have been received from responsible authorities such as the police, or interested parties such as local residents, and a hearing has been carried out.

I hope this is helpful.

Yours sincerely

NOTE = The Two Key Phrases are “All public performances of hypnotism” (therefore that includes Street Hypnosis) and also “is required by law to cover such entertainment regardless of whether they take place indoors or outdoors” (again that means it covers Street Hypnosis outdoors as well as impromptu hypnosis done in licensed premises and other places of an entertainment nature”

HE THEN SENT THIS FOLLOW UP EMAIL….

Dear Mr Smith

Further to my email of 21 April, I wish to apologise for an error in my reply.

I can confirm that the powers for controlling performances of hypnotism in England and Wales, although delegated to the same licensing authority that deals with the Licensing Act 2003, come under the Hypnotism Act 1952.

I am sorry if my original email caused you some confusion.

Best wishes –

THE REPLY I GOT FROM THE VARIETY DEPARTMENT OF BRITISH ACTORS EQUITY DEPARTMENT STATED AMONGST OTHER POINTS:

“I would expect the 1952 Hypnotism Act and the Model Conditions to apply to streets. Streets and public outdoor spaces can be licensed for performance.”

REGARDING THE LEGAL NEED FOR RISK ASSESMENT’S OUR EXPERINECED QUALIFIED HEALTH & SAFETY EXPERT STATED:

Who needs a Risk Assessment Document? 

It is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT in the United Kingdom that – 

-All employers and self employed people have to assess risks at work.

-Employers with five or more employees should have a written health and safety policy.

-Employers with five or more employees have to record the significant findings of their risk assessment.*

-The law does not expect you to eliminate all risk, but you are required to protect people as far as is ‘reasonably practicable’.

*It is my own experience that Health & Safety Law does not differentiate between paid workers (i.e. employees) and unpaid workers (such as charity volunteers).

As such it is my personal recommendation that any hypnotist working with 5 or more volunteers (or in the case of group therapy – 5 or more clients) conducts a full and proper Risk Assessment, and records those findings.

Putting aside all the legal arguments, it is good practise, and extremely beneficial to all concerned, that a Risk Assessment is carried out and kept by all performers, therapists etc. no matter how many other people are involved in their activities.

(Such could be used as defence materials if anyone was ever to attempt to instigate a Court Action against you under Duty of Care or Negligence Laws)

In relation to Street Hypnosis, if you were in the course of your day likely to

Encounter five people or more to be involved in your activities then, then my considered opinion is, that in law a Risk Assessment would most likely be deemed a Legal Requirement.

FURTHER FACT’S REGARDING RISK ASSESMENT’S…

A large majority of UK Councils will only issue a License for Hypnosis to take place when a satisfactory written Risk Assessment has been submitted to them with the application for the license.

Also some insurance policies (Certainly the one I negotiated which covers both Stage & Street Hypnosis at both indoor and out door locations anywhere inUKandEurope) require a Risk Assessment to be in place in order for a successful claim to be made on the policy should that unfortunate need ever arise for the Hypnotist.

There’s way more information and facts about why you would be a fool (and most likely breaking the law) if you do not have a proper Risk Assessment in place, together with exact step by step instructions and examples of how to create a Legally acceptable one for both Stage and Street Hypnosis on “The Transparency Template” training DVD’s.

SOME FACT’S REGARDING THE NEED FOR INSURANCE COVER..

Given that we have now established that a License to perform under the 1952 Hypnotism Act is indeed needed from each Local Authority for each Hypnotist carrying out those activities in their area, it should be noted that No U.K council will ever issue such a License without first having site of a current valid Public Liability Insurance Policy which clearly states in the Policy wording that it covers the Hypnotist in question for the activities that are going to take place under the 1952 Hypnotism Act.

THE BOTTOM LINE FOR BRITISH STREET & STAGE HYPNOTIST’S

So with regards to the 1952 Hypnotism – http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Geo6and1Eliz2/15-16/46 

And also the 1989 Government Guidelines, 1995 Home Office Review of Hypnosis, 1996 Updated Model Conditions, The Licensing Act 2003 and various other Laws and Guidelines etc that do indeed apply to Street Hypnotists in England you’d be well advised to take a look at “The Transparency Template” Home Study DVD Course..

It also covers absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to know about Laws all over the World relating to Hypnosis, Insurance Matters, Health and Safety Matters and Risk Assessments and much more….

SOME REVIEW’S OF THE TRANSPARENCY TEMPLATE PACKAGE..

The transparency template is a modern encyclopaedia of Stage Hypnosis on DVD. With more information than you will ever be able to use it covers the subject in depth.    Jammed with inductions, suggestibility tests and just about every aspect of performing stage hypnosis you could think of. It also has well researched sections that cover the legal, health and safety aspects something that every hypnotist should know about before stepping on to the stage. I recommend it for that alone.

Jonathan Royle / Alex presents his material very candidly! I appreciate that! I have purchased a number of his training items (living in the States, live-training is a far-reach option for me) and I love each of them. Each item has over-delivered. Being a clinically certified hypnotherapist and a certified stage hypnotist for 6 years, in addition to my initial training, I have taken many additional training courses. Jonathan’s training materials have taught me many items, techniques, insights, perspectives that I never learned in my initial live training courses! Most recently, I purchased the Transparency Template – LOVE IT. Great work, Jonathan, thank you. I’m constantly going back to it, it is beyond just training, it is a resource. The Health & Safety training it contains is worth many times the tiny investment alone! Additionally, Jonathan has extended himself for consult, even simple questions, regarding anything hypnosis, hypnotherapy, NLP, Complete Mind Therapy, stage hypnosis, etc. He’s a personal person – the hypnotist’s hypnotist. Thanks, very much, Jonathan! Matthew Fallon – (USA) – http://www.hypno-tainment.com/

THE REVIEW FROM REG BLACKWOOD – http://www.streetnosis.com

Dr. Jonathan Royle is a controversial character in the world ofhypnosis, perhaps better known for his shameless self-promotion, murky, chequered past and public arguments with various other hypnotists.

On his latest DVD set, he is loud and swears too much for my liking.  He’s arrogant and opinionated and obviously has an over-inflated ego. So why is it that I actually find him likable and funny while watching ”Transparency Template – The revolutionary Guide for Hypnotists?”

I’m not sure, but what I do know is that I really like this DVD set and you probably will too.

This is very detailed and comprehensive home study course covering all of the important stuff you simply need to know if you’re even considering setting foot on stage, street or anywhere and calling yourself a hypnotist.

He dispenses with a lot of the usual theory behind hypnosis but in its place he spends an extraordinary amount of time discussing the legal, licensing and insurance issues which are always such a hot topic in the UK.

However, the advice and guidelines are presented in such a way as to make perfect sense, relevant to any hypnotist anywhere in the world.

I was expecting him to air a couple of “personal beefs” during his presentation and was even prepared for them to leave a nasty taste in my mouth, but I have to say for the relatively short space of time he spends on this (a couple of minutes at most) what comes across first and foremost is his genuine concern for the art. And you really can’t knock him for that.

If you look hard, you will find inevitable contradictions throughout the course, but Jonathan happily admits up front: Hypnosis is full of paradoxes.

Attention to safety for me is a win-win situation. While clients, audiences and volunteers might not always outwardly thank you for it, if it permeates what you do it shows a professional and caring nature behind all the laughter and crazy antics and helps get you booked and re-booked.

Furthermore, fellow professionals really appreciate it too. During this course, the safety aspects are covered with fine, almost paranoid attention to detail and I applaud Jonathan Royle for this.

One thing that really stands out is that he doesn’t ignore any of the problems and dangers a hypnotist is likely to face.

He doesn’t even just give them an honorary mention. He faces them head on and discusses them in the manner of one who has been there, done that and worn the t-shirt and implores you to learn from his own stuff-ups.

“Common sense” is mentioned frequently in relation to safety and most of it is, but a lot of what’s taught here should be mandatory for any hypnotist whether you’re just starting out or are experienced and guilty of having become a little complacent.

There are more inductions than any hypnotist would ever need and each is covered with the same attention to detail. Something of a bonus here for me is when the new “Bad Boy” of UK Hypnosis Rob Temple steps up to show his ingenious See-saw Induction. His demo leaves me itching to perform it myself.

Rather than just act as superfluous credits on the cover, Rob and other guests are utilised perfectly throughout the course and each is a great presenter and speaker in his own right, demonstrating the same enthusiasm for their chosen artform as the man himself.

To say much more would probably be classed as a spoiler, but I have to just add that the bonus DVD (regularly referred to during the main presentation) in my opinion is worth the price of this set all on its own.

If I have anything negative to say, apart from the fact that the bad language might not be to everyone’s taste it would only be that like most DVDs in this field, production values and quality are a little lacking, but that can be easily forgiven for the quantity and quality of content on offer here.

A full transcript would also have been a welcome addition for those who have difficulty with Northern English accents or of different learning styles, but these really are very minor niggles making an otherwise 5 star review a 4.9!

Whatever you might think of self-professed “King of Hypnotists”

Jonathan Royle, that’s unlikely to change very much, but if you are too stubborn to put any preconceptions aside to buy and watch this DVD set, then you’re really missing out on an excellent hypnosis training product.

I’m really happy to have this as part of my hypnosis collection and have little doubt that if this is your first purchase in this field, you’ll probably have little need for very much else.

Reviews & Comments About This Unique Show…

This is not just a Mind Reading or Mentalism show this is a truly memorable THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE…

“”Having Watched Jonathan Royles Egg Sausage Peas Show I can honestly say its unique. With Psychic Belly Button Reading being the main hook of the first half around which the Mind Reading experiments are presented, this is most definitely not your conventional kind of Mentalism show. However Royle has some unique, creative and entertaining takes on such classics as the Chair Test, ACAAN, Hoys Tossed Out Deck and the Russian Roulette Plot which are certainly worth a closer look and take them to the next level. At times he had the audience on the edge of their seats and overall this show was top notch”

“Jonathan Royle performs very direct Mentalism and Mind Reading that anyone would find accessible. ESP is a cleverly structured show with moments that stir up the full range of emotions. There are effects in there that most would struggle to work out, that includes other mentalists.”
Owen Mc Gough – www.owenmcgoughonline.co.uk

‎”Jonathan Royle leaves others in the field of mentalism and mind magic wanting, new and original takes on some old favourites and enough new material to leave you wondering “How on earth did he do that?” Fast paced, punchy and engaging, Jonathan always delivers. There are many performers in this field but only one true master. Don’t just take my word for it, look at the hundreds, if not thousands of “Testimonials” from others all over the world.”
Robert Phipps (Television Body Language Expert) http://www.robertphipps.com/

Having viewed the Jonathan Royles E.S.P Show I was Amused, Entertained, Bewildered. Amazed, Informed and Educated in equal measures! Jonathan’s performance was clearly that of a seasoned veteran on the stage.
Demonstrating an ability to explain most tricks as they were being performed, yet still bringing pleasurable delight to the audience.
A must watch for other professionals in the business, those wishing to learn more about how the mind operates and anyone who wishes to enjoy a couple of hours of action paced entertainment.

Alex/Jonathan is back on stage in his new show Egg, sausage and peas. A combination of mentalism, hypnosis and comedy. Knowing Alex personally all I can say although controversial in nature, he delivers on what he promises and his new show is exactly that. I enjoyed all the different routines and it shows that the audience did too which is what is most important. Alex is like marmite you either love him or hate him but one thing they both have in common is they both sell!

“I went to see to “Eggs, Sausages and Pea’s” show performed by Jonathan Royle at the Three Minute Theatre in Manchester. I have to say I did not really know what to expect, However I wasn’t disappointed! Jonathan was funny and yet fascinating at the same time. He engaged the audience in all of the mentalism routines. The entire show left me amazed, wondering how he did the tricks. I was even part of the show and Jonathan made me feel completely at ease when I was on the stage. There was one trick called “The Table of Doom” which really did have me and every audience member on the edge of their seats, WOW. I won’t say any more but to go and see the show for yourself. Jonathan Royle is engaging, amazing and a true showman.

“Royle’s show is a masterful blend of comedy and mentalism, with belly button reading being not only a hilarious skit but a skilful display of his wide repertoire and ability as an entertainer,  hypnotist and magician.

“Jonathan, In all honesty I thought the first half of the show way to slow in the pacing and the length of time to do the effects. Having said that, you did pick up the pace for the second half and hold it well. Two of my favourite effects, which I have performed many times, are Hoy’s Tossed Out Deck and the Ultimate Lift. Your variations on both were outstanding. I particularly liked showing the power of words with the signs for the Ultimate Lift. I saw a number of effects, if they were not original, you certainly changed them so much they might as well have been.”

“Just watched part one of your Egg, Sausage and Peas Show. I have always had my doubts about mixing comedy and mentalism until I watched this. It really works well although I am glad to see that the mentalism was stronger than the comedy. Your presentation was excellent and there was plenty of audience involvement. I really enjoyed your lie dectector routine, I feel this always plays well with a large audience. Your psychometry routine was absoluely hilarious. I have never seen belly buttons used before to give character analyses. This is an absolute gem. The finish with the specs ring was also strong. The book test was well positioned in your show. As Cassidy says you should never open with a book test otherwise your audience will think you are using a confederate. The spectator synchronicity with cards was very baffling and the magic square made for a very strong finish. All in all a very enjoyable show.”
Roger Curzon – (Creator of The Miracle Signed Card in Envelope) 

“Having watched jonathans egg, sausage, and peas show i have to say
i was greatly impressed. His combination of Comedy, and Mentalism
were brilliant. the whole structure of the show and its routines were all individually excellent but the way he combines them to produce these
amazing results is nothing short of spectacular. i even was asked up as a volunteer and i must honestly say the routine i was involved with i tried my best to make it as difficult as i could, i was gob smacked at how he did the trick with this particular routine especially as i was holding and shuffling the cards. If there is one show you must see this year make it Jonathan Royles egg, sausage, and, peas you will not be disappointed.”

Jonathan Royle’s Egg, Sausage and Peas

A review by Roslyn Walker (master escape artist, sideshow performer, magician and mentalist) http://www.roslynwalker.com)

The problem with writing a review, for the person writing it at least, is where to begin. And it is no different for me this time round trying to find the words to describe Jonathan Royle’s new show Egg, Sausage and Peas (ESP). Finding the right starting point is a bit of a conundrum. Should I comment on the finale of the show, expose the twists and turns or tell you about my favourite routine?

I’ve decided to answer no to all these questions and begin by telling you a little bit about Jonathan as a performer, then I’ll move on to the show as a whole. Leaving the twists and turns a surprise for those of you who decide to go and watch the show yourselves.

Jonathan is quite obviously a professional performer who has put a lot of effort into designing his on stage persona. From the moment he walks out on stage in his bespoke suit you can tell.

Before watching ESP I had not seen one of Jonathan’s shows before and to be honest I was expecting to see another Derren Brown clone. I’m sure many reading this will know what I’m talking about. Those mentalists with a little beard who use “psychology, magic, misdirection and showmanship” to create a poor recreation of Derren’s show.

This was not the case with Jonathan. Yes, he makes claims to using psychology. Yes, to the highly trained eye of the magician he uses magical techniques. Yes, he misdirects his audience with the expertise of a top showman. But when you watch him do it you’re not thinking to yourself: “well he’s obviously got the Mind Control box set permanently playing in every room in his house”.

Jonathan is a unique performer that has put his own spin on what has become a very factory line area of the magical arts.

So, what of the effects?

In a nutshell what Jonathan gives to his audience is of an extremely high quality. The effects themselves are baffling and there are many aspects that will fool even the more knowledgeable of magicians and mentalists. I have seen more magic shows than I care to admit to and I have sat through more bad magic shows than good.

This isn’t one of the bad ones.

There were many plots that I’d seen before, but Jonathan performed them in his way rather than just rehashing what had come before. What was a breath of fresh air was to see a fair number of effects that I can only assume are unique to Jonathan, as I had never seen them performed before.

The first half of Jonathan’s show is a selection of classic mentalism effects that build from a simple one-in-three chance to tackling the Holy Grail of mentalism (ACAAN) in a very clever way.

I enjoyed the first half immensely. The belly button routine was simultaneously unique, clever and very funny. However, I felt that Jonathan should have ended on his penultimate effect rather than the think of a number effect. I didn’t like the way this played out at all. And although he managed to get away with it, this isn’t how I would personally want to end the first half of my show; namely by just getting away with it.

For me, I would have liked Jonathan to end this half of the show on the card trick. It’s strong and seems completely impossible. This was a three-phase routine that has a truly killer ending. Even if the final trick had worked as it was supposed to it still would have been very anti-climatic to what had come before: Less being more and all that.

The second half adopts a change of pace that is mimicked by Jonathan’s change of costume to a more casual look.

This half of the show sees Jonathan play with the idea of celebrity, tell a tale of the demise of his grandmother’s mental faculties (resulting in her destroying her own house) and play a game using his daughter’s DVD book. But for me the highlight has to be the game he plays with a 6” nail. He calls it the table of death, but magicians will know it as the Russian roulette plot.

I have to say that this routine was not only the highlight of the second half, but the whole show. It is absolutely fantastic. From start to finish Jonathan builds the suspense to a point where the room is quite simply electric.

Members of the audience mix a cup with the nail under it with five others that don’t contain anything at all.

Then, and this is where Jonathan’s routine differs from others I’ve seen, he allows audience members to name numbers at random. He then crushes those named cups with his bare hands.

What I especially loved about Jonathan’s Russian roulette routine is the fact that the final spectator was allowed to change their mind. And when they did Jonathan simply crushed the number they’d switched to and revealed the final cup to contain the spike!

The Table of Death is simply stunning and a real magician fooler.

So to sum up.

In short Jonathan Royle’s show Eggs, Sausage and Peas (ESP) is a fantastic example of modern mentalism done well. He is one of those rare performers who stand out as unique among a host of bearded clones in a crowded field. ESP is a fun, heart warming and highly entertaining show that will make you laugh one minute and gasp in amazement the next.

I’m so glad I took the time to see it and I recommend that you do too.

“Jonathan has a stage presence that is undeniably honest. This true persona shines brightly during his latest ESP Show aptly titled Eggs, Sausage, Peas! Consisting largely of original material, Jonathan’s routining is a valuable lesson to amateurs and professionals alike. Rather than presenting one experiment, then the next, and then the next, etc., Jonathan blends large portions of the show together so cleverly, demonstrating efficiency with audience volunteers, items chosen and things written down, bringing a breath of very fresh air to the typical ‘mentalism’ show. This clever efficiency is responsible for the mind-blowing, multiple climaxes (yes, you read that right!) in most of Jonathan’s material. His smartly-devised, mult-phased routining and effects rule out reverse-engineering as a possible tool to try to figure out how he does many of his very original and entertaining effects. A routine that begins like the classic “Seven (in Jonathan’s case, five) Keys to Baldplate,” takes approximately 5 sharp turns, each with its own huge kicker, ending in an impossible birth year prediction that opens the combination padlock, releasing a volunteer’s wedding band. Strong, commercial material here. His Russian Roulette involving a jumbo, steel nail, is very strong: 2 hands, 6 cups, 1 nail and audience members steering the direction (no forcing) of the cup-smashing. Jonathan adds the right amount of drama needed to sell this effect to a lay audience and magicians ‘who know,’ will be scratching their heads at his presentation. Jonathan’s endearing story of his daughter, leads us to his “DVD Book” test which is strongly unique with an apparent ‘Magi screwed up-type ending,’ but actually ends correct as a visual and mental stunner – a very commercial piece. His closing piece involves ESP cards, but before you sigh, “really?!…”, bite your tongue, sit down, watch and take notes. The way that Jonathan gets audience members to pair up matching ESP cards is uncanny, the reveal is strong (seeing a theme here?), stretched out over time giving his audience one more unbelievable, compounded routine with multiple climaxes. Most excellent! …I need a cigarette.”

Egg Sausage Pea’s — Show Review by Ben Hughes (Freelance Journalist)

Jonathan Royle smashes his hand down onto a polystyrene cup that could hide an upturned sharpened spike within.

The absence of screaming, and the lack of blood, tell his audience
that, thankfully, it doesn’t — this time. But there are three more cups to go. Does he guess right?

You’ll have to go along yourself to Jonathan’s new show — oddly titled Eggs, Suasage, and Peas — to find out.

And once you’ve sat through the numerous videos of the illusion going horribly wrong, you’ll rather wish he does. If only to ensure you’ll get at least one chance to see him in action again.

I was not alone in the audience, I’m sure, in hoping he’d announce
after the gory videos that he wasn’t daft enough to perform the trick after all, and could anyone think of a card, any card?

My heart has only just left my mouth and returned to it’s rightful
place in my chest.

This was just a taster preview of Jonathan’s new mentalism show, held at one of my favorite pubs The Kings Arms in Salford. The full show will be revealed next month.

After an opening half full of mysterious illusion, the second half of
the show was a little darker with tales of his dead grandmother.

I don’t want to give too much of the show away, but if you get a
chance to see it then I recommend you do. The man is unique.

I hope to see more from his amazing mind in the future. Can’t wait for the full show in April.

Jonathan Royle Comedy Mind Reading Show
A Review by Magician & Mentalist – Myke Phillips
http://www.mykephillips.co.uk

Jonathan Royle graces the stage with his ability to second guess decisions you will make,predict impossible things and even scare the living S#* t out of you.

He will cause a spectators family member, “called on the phone” to name three random cards selected by three audience members.

He will predict things that no normal person should be able to foresee.

Jonathan will show you a video of other magicians failing at the most dangerous trick known in the world of magic, and why you should never try this at home. He then proceeds to smash his hand down on five polystyrene cups, avoiding a nasty 6″ sharp nail.

You will see spectators impossibly draw the same picture, even though they are six feet away.

What Jonathan’s show has, is an edgy feel to it. These experiments don’t always go according to plan. So if you want to be a part of something unique, then his show is a once in a lifetime thrill that you won’t forget.

The best part of Jonathan’s performance, is his ability to motivate you and make you leave feeling positive that you can achieve anything, as long as you have belief.

Jonathan claims he is using NLP, body language and subtle cues to know what your thinking, but I think you will leave believing he can really read your mind.

You will even have the chance to be a celebrity for the night as he predicts random decisions you make.

Jonathan’s combination of hypnosis comedy and mind stunts will keep you on the edge of your seat.

A roller coaster ride of excitement.

I would like to thank Jonathon for allowing me to review his show Eggs Sausage Peas and I will do this in 2 parts, so here is part 1. The show overall was excellent and I urge anyone who has the opportunity to see this to pencil a date in your diary as a must, if the show is in your area.

Ok the show itself was well routined a mixture of old techniques and Jonathans own unique effects and twists and variations on old techniques modernised for a modern audience. The opening of his show was in my opinion the weakest effect of the night a 3 card routine which might have been better placed elsewhere as i expected a strong and visual opening, but then what was to come made up for this.

The ACAAN was possibly the best version of the effect I have ever seen and the belly button reading was hilarious, variation after variation and multiple reveals and this slayed the audience.

The second half was faster paced and had a serious element with his version of Russian Roulette and 6 cups were used, not 4 or 5 that some other mentalists use, and I’ve even seen mentalists use just 3, so with the opening showing video footage of accidents and the Halloween theme belting out, this created atmosphere, and when mixed up and then the audience picked the order of cups he was to hit, made for a dramatic and tense moment and the successful conclusion was rewarded by a huge cheer and clapping.

The show ended with a revelation/prediction based on an ode to his Gran and with other revelations coming fast and furious, the show ended at great pace to huge applause, excellent show and great performance by Jonathan.

Part 2 of review of Eggs Sausage Peas. As a mentalist and hypnotist albeit for 18 months, i think its an excellent idea to use the show as the basis of a mentalists training course. I already have 2 training courses from Jonathan and he is an excellent teacher and guide and will aid beginners into becoming more successful and more seasoned ones better performers.

There is a lack of mentalists training courses out there, in fact none as far as I know yet there are many books and effects on the market, however these cant teach you how to put a show together, the best opening and closing effect, audience management, routining a show and marketing a show etc, that would benefit the genre.

I use ACAAN and have 2 versions, yet Jonathon blew me away, and I use a chair test, yet Jonathan had audience members stand up for a variation unique to him and again excellent.

Now not everyone will want to do a Russian Roulette type effect, but again everyone will have their own unique style of performing, so its getting the right effects for your style, and so there is a need for a concise training product.

I don’t expect Jonathon would give away performing rights with this training package, but if he did it would be the must have mentalists product of the year, however even without that, its still a package that all budding mentalists need to add to their library as his training and teaching are second to none .

STOP PRESS – NEW REVIEW FROM MAGICIAN CARL DE ROME OF NORWAY

Jonathan Royle takes to the stage and commands the respect of his audience from the outset!

Having seen the show that lasts for over 2 hours of Mental Magic, with E.S.P. hence the shows title Egg, Sausage and Peas, he wastes no time in getting 5 volunteers up onto the stage, and what for, of all things to do a great set of ESP finishing off with an hilarious belly button reading routine that had the audience in stitches.

The first half of the show closes with one of the best MAGIC NUMBERS SQUARE You are ever likely to see, as its not expected from anyone until the final reveal, taking everybody by surprise even Magicians as when you realize its to late!

After a short break Jonathan aka Alex does a costume change, looking smart and casual and again takes to the stage with more E,S,P, and mind reading plus as a bonus a little Hypnotic effects and again lots of audience participation, If I remember correctly he had over 20 people up on stage during the 2 halves.

One very funny routine involves 5 members of the audience choosing his daughter a cartoon character to read for a bedtime story, at the end the audience are duped into thinking the trick has gone terribly wrong for Jonathan, How wrong they are when Jonathon takes the paper bag off his head to reveal he knew all along what they had chosen, I won’t give the ending away to this, as I do not wish to spoil it for anyone.

So I suggest you go and see Egg Sausage and Peas LIVE you will Not be disappointed, and the show is really good value for money.

Lastly Jonathon performs a trick I also perform Smash and Stab? But I have to say His version blew me away, and is totally different version to mine or in fact to any version I have seen, and I have absolutely NO idea how he did it.

Starting off with a warning Video on the big screen of other magicians getting it really wrong and warning the audience of the dangers and NOT TO TRY THIS THEMSELVES.

Using 6 cups ( not the usual 4 ) the spectator puts a 6inch metal nail onto one of the cups facing straight up, then the spectator mixes them up so no one knows where the nail is, the cups are then numbered 1 to 6 and Mr. Royle simply just asks 5 audience members one at a time to simply choose a number…

and then as each number is chosen that is the cup he slams his hand down onto, I have not got a clue how he did this and in a way I’m happy about this fact as I loved it.

So for a great night out, and to see a great show performed by a Mentalist who really knows his craft, you could not really do any better than popping along and seeing the show Egg, Sausage, and Peas, LIVE for yourself, and take along some friends especially the skeptic ones it will really kick them right in there heads!

It’s a show you will enjoy and walk away wondering If he has powers or was it just good trickery,….who cares it’s a good show…..
