A magician dropped in on a group of elderly people who went back to university after retiring.

Members of University of the Third Age, who meet in Barnet, Harrow and Borehamwood, were visited by magician Chris Woodward.

Mr Woodward is the author of The London Palladium: The Story of the Theatre and its Stars, as well as a Gold Star member of the Inner Magic Circle.

He spoke about his career as an illusionist during the group's annual summer tea at St Lawrence Church Hall, in Edgware.
