For the past 43 years, up to 2019, the event was run by Professor Edwin Dawes, considered to be the foremost living magic historian, and Peter Lane, the Head Librarian of The Magic Circle for many years.

"Our aim is to continue with the well-established format", said Ian, "of booking top magic historians from all over the world. However, we also want to encourage younger male and female participants to attend and discover the fascination of many aspects of magic history. We will therefore be drawing on an exciting pool of new speakers, including those better known for magic performing than their academic work." Venue: The Magic Circle, 12 Stephenson Way, Euston, London NW1 2HD. 9.30am to 6pm, Saturday 10th September 2022. Tickets: Non-members £49, members £44, online via www.tmcshop.squarespace.com/store.

 

Inaugural Magic Circle One Day Convention - London

11th September

Featuring a star-studded International Gala Show, 'The Magic Emporium' Global Dealers showcase, great socialising, and a host of outstanding lectures! Marc Spelmann will be making his first appearance since his runaway success on Britainís Got Talent, and brilliant magic-thinker Marc Oberon will be appearing... just two of the star names announced to date, with many, many more to come!

 

Michael J Fitch writes: After a tough couple of years for the industry, The Magic Circle is back with flair and what better way to celebrate than by welcoming some of the best magic talent from around the world. It's always been a struggle with space to do something like this, but the recently refurbished Wesley Hotel next door to our headquarters provided the perfect opportunity to extend the dealers hall and, of course, provide the all important late night magic sessions and after-party. Sure to be a sell-out, this event has strictly limited places. www.tmcshop.squarespace.com/store.
