Simon Taylor – Illusionist

Simon Taylor - Illusionist

Simon Taylor defines the difference between sleight of hand and sleight of mind magic.

Through studies in psychology, practice of hypnosis and experience in the performing arts he is able to blend a range of skills into an unforgettable presentation of illusion.   His personable demeanour and energetic performance style allows Simon to deliver high powered entertainment with intellectually captivating content.

Based in Melbourne, Simon has continued to produce sold out stage shows.   Along with performing at private corporate events, he currently runs a weekly magic show called My Magic Thursdays .  He is regularly sought after by science groups and academics for his understanding of human behaviour and insight into the construction of illusion.

These are illusions for the mind, about the mind.

Simon’s performance will form part of the Commemorative Ceremony
Thursday March 18th in Diggers Rest.

Melton & District Historical Society

The Society was established in 1968 as a volunteer group to preserve Melton’s history, and is now situated at The Willows homestead in the Historical Park, Melton. We have been involved in many community projects over the years, and now have the opportunity to create Melton’s first historical museum, also in the historical park, behind the Men’s Shed.

As well as collecting and researching historical items and cataloguing our vast collection of artefacts and photographs, we also open the Homestead to visitors every Sunday afternoon. Our volunteers give talks to schools and community groups as well as conducting group tours to the park.

Our new Museum, when finished, will house an extensive collection of local farm implements and machinery and will also showcase our history with horses.  We welcome visitors to the Homestead and if you would like a tour during the week, feel free to contact us.
