I never knew much about it though until COVID-19 happened, and I ended up quarantined for 7 months in my childhood home. I've spent all my time learning about it, which led to me discover something else: it might not have been the only one. This Halloween, join me in one of the most ambitious things I've ever attempted: a seance livestreamed on the internet, with participants from all over the world including you. Tune in, watch, and take part in a unprecedented experience.

Richard Jones: Escape 2021 - UK Tour

March Dates

From the promoters: "Richard Jones was the winner of Britain's Got Talent and is a British Army soldier as well as one of the world’s greatest magicians in The Magic Circle. Having recently had audiences on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions completely captivated, Richard is extending his sell-out tour of the UK with new dates in 2021. The mesmerising Lance Corporal will confirm exactly what made him the stand out act to win Britain’s top talent show in 2016... And still the only magician to have won the show. After gasps of emotion shown on the ITV programme, much of the audience were reduced to tears when Richard paid tribute to his veteran mentor, Fergus Anckorn – a fellow magician who died last year before his 100th birthday. On his extended tour of Escape, Richard endeavours to break the boundaries of the mind with his ‘magic with meaning’, debuting a further twist on some of his newest, awe-inspiring magic. In heart-warming memory of Fergus, he will be recreating some of his dear friend’s most incredible tricks too - some of which the legendary soldier only ever taught Richard himself."

Contact registration@blackpoolmagicconvention.com. If our Registration Hub does not hear from you by the 1st December 2020, we will presume you are happy for tickets to be held over to the 2022 event. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2022. The dates for Blackpool 2022 are Thursday 17th February to Sunday 20th February 2022.
