Breaking news!

Next years Blackpool Convention, to be held 17th-19th February 2012, will be in its 60th year! To mark this, the convention will be bigger and better than ever – certainly one not to be missed! There will be 3 gala shows….. Yes that's right, 3 world class shows, featuring the best acts in magic!!



Friday 17th February: Magic of the Orient

Saturday 18th February: Magic from the USA

Sunday 19th February: Magic of Europe

The Saturday night night show, ‘Magic from the USA’ is a tribute to the late, great, Hank Moorhouse, who died earlier this year. Hank was a great supporter of Blackpool Convention and the Blackpool Magicians’ and will be sadly missed.

Also, Blackpool Magicians’ Club are proud to announce that the Childrens Entertainers National Championships will be held on Saturday 18th February.

The convention will take place in the newly refurbished Blackpool Winter Gardens and Opera House. These lavish surroundings are the perfect compliment to both the 60th Blackpool Magic Convention and FISM 2012 which are set to be the highlights of the magical calendar.

For the latest go to : http://www.blackpoolmagic.com/blog/


Yes 3700 magicians can't be wrong, yup 3700, the biggest in the world. Put this on your bucket list, a must attend event. We would not miss it for the world. Our 15th year.


My tickets state:

Friday - Orient.
Saturday - Europe.
Sunday - USA.

Hey,

I'm thinking of going in 2012... Not been for over 10 years when I was a teenager! Can someone explain the ticket format please? Can't really make sense of it on the website.

- Do you have to buy the registration plus a day ticket?
- What about all the lectures and day events? Would a 1 day ticket (Saturday £50) cover all of the day events?
- When do you find out a schedule for the day events?
- Do you have to book seats for particular ones?
- Is the dealers exhibition included in any ticket?

Thanks! John.

- No, Ticket includes registration
- Yes, good luck trying to see it all ;-)
- On the web-site probably, some time closer to the event.
- No, gala show has reserved seats, the rest is on first-come, first-served basis
- Yes

I hope this answers your questions, if not let me know.
Hope to see you in Blackpool

Thank you! That's great, I'll probably be purchasing a Saturday ticket then. I remember about 10 years ago watching a good lecture with demonstrations and explanations. I look forward to it and I think I have some catching up to do!

Omitted from the above for newcomers, after the shows, the Convention Hotel gathering spot is the Ruskin Hotel on Albert. See you there.

You guys will LOVE the Korean magicians. I'm bringing Yoo Hyun Min (Grand Prix Close Up FISM Asia) and Park Eun Kyoung (possibly the best female magician I've ever seen) to Australia just so the local magic community can see how incredibly good they are!

If you're going to Blackpool and wondering where to stay, may I recommend the Walford Hotel. Small, nicely run hotel, inexpensive, perfect location on Albert Road ideal for the Convention and for the Ruskin, and owner Lynne will take good care of you. I have no vested interest. I'm recommending it because I stay there and I think it's a good choice.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. It will be our first Blackpool!

I will be working in the dealers room. Rosie gets to play.

Hi, Angelo. Glad you're going again to Blackpool. Will you have any new items with you? I always enjoy your highly creative magic and enjoy seeing it demoed by you as well as collecting it. Michael Lair

London magic shops, Davenports, and International Magic. If you in on a Monday, ask someone there for a connection to go over to the Magic Circle Meeting (Mon Night)(near Euston Station, where you get the train to Blackpool) If clear, hit the London Eye, beautiful at night, bring a camera. The West End, like NY has the twofers ticket booth for some great shows and plays. Then of course all the famous stuff. Tours leave out of the Royal National Hotel to countryside, Evan Evan is the big kid on the block tour operator, but we loved Astral Tours, mini buses go places the big ones cant. You can book in advance online. The Underground is a great way to get around London. And when you get to Blackpool, say hi.

There's a question on the coin forums whether David Roth will be there. Could you please confirm?
