International Magic Convention and Festival 2012 – Dates Announced

December 31st, 2011 - Magic Convention Guide

International MagicFollowing on from the success of the London Festival of Magic that coincided with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the International Magic Convention. Organisers of the International Magic convention and the International Magic Festival have announced that they will be repeating the events back to back in 2012.

From the 12th to the 16th of November 2012, the Bridewell Theatre will once again host a series of one day seminars and fantastic evening shows. Themes for the days include plans for Mentalism, Coins, Showmanship & Direction and The Magic of Magic, with a couple of extra surprises still to come.

“The feedback we have had for the last event has been tremendous, and although organising the event so close to the Convention is hard work, the success of our inaugural event, both in the quality of the presenters and the information and entertainment they imparted has left us with a feeling that it shouldn’t just be a one-off” said event organiser Noel Britten. “The day seminars will again be themed and available on a day by day registration basis, which allows us to really concentrate on niche elements and genres of magic utilising both the overseas talent coming in for the Convention and also some of our very top British performers as well. One of the problems with having the first event as a one-off was that we have set ourselves a high bar to reach, but already plans are coming together and it looks like this year’s event will match last year’s both in scope and performers taking part. I really hope that those who attended last year will help spread the word of the quality and uniqueness of the days we presented so that we can really build on last year’s fabulous event.”
