International Magic Convention and Festival Tickets Selling Fast

September 12th, 2012 - Magic Convention Guide

International Magic ConventionMove quickly! Tickets are selling fast for both the International Magic Convention and Festival and you’re already too late for both Juan Tamariz’s one man show and Joanie Spina’s one to one sessions which now have sold out completely and waiting lists having been created for both. Not that means you can’t get to see both of them during the rest of the Festival and Convention with Joanie lecturing at the Directions day of the Festival (Monday 12th November 2012) and during the Convention on Sunday morning (18th November 2012). Juan will be giving an extended lecture during the Convention on the Sunday afternoon.

Added to the Gala Show line- up is Lukas. This fantastic manipulator, a recent FISM award winner is reviewed in the current Magic with these words, “What we’d witnessed was manipulation in it’s purest form. The silence in the vast auditorium was deafening as we witnessed technical skill slowed down so precisely, so beautifully that we were convinced we were seeing something very special indeed. During the ecstatic standing ovation, the magician to my right whispered “That looked like real magic”. He was right.” Your chance to see him will be in the Gala Show repeated on the Saturday and Sunday evenings at the Mermaid Theatre. Registration details on www.internationalmagic.com
