Merlin Magical Society was a Magic Organization formed in 1930 for magicians living north of London, England and is still going strong in 2008. It was proposed originally that the society be called, "The East Herts & North Middlesex Magical Society", but members felt that was too long.

Edward Victor was a president for twenty-two years. Other past presidents were Fred Culpitt, Jasper Maskelyne and Frank Boynett
