International Magic Convention – Larger Extended Dealer Area and Parlour Performance AreaAugust 17th, 2012 by Magic Convention Guide
The Mermaid Theatre Complex has recently undergone something of a renovation and extension which means that International Magic are very happy to announce that during the International Magic Convention later this year (November 16-18 2012) the Dealers will now all be situated in the extended Newgate Suite.
Not only will this allow easier access from the theatre between events, but also the new space will allow the Convention to feature even more dealers than in the past, alongside a new extra room where Michael Vincent will be performing short Parlour type performances before the Gala Show on Saturday and Sunday night. Alongside Michael’s performance there will be, as always, strolling close up performers and with the foyer space of the theatre also being doubled in size during the building work, even more room to enjoy the pre-show entertainment.
Convention co-organiser Noel Britten says “We’ve always considered we have the best facilities of any of the all-round UK Conventions in terms of the theatre for lectures, close up and stage but the dealers have always been tucked away slightly and a bit of a walk towards the back of the building, now that has all changed, and for us as a venue choice it has added the cherry to the top of the cake”
