Yeah I was. Was there anything good towards the end? I would've stayed but I was falling asleep on the spot.

I thought it was well run, I'd hate to run something like that. Derek was starting to look a bit stressed when I left.

Are you going to the Convention next year. Derek runs that too, I have no idea how he does so much. I can't wait. This years was my first and it was amazing.

Yeah i'm going and it will be my third year I think it's great, and they are having a break from the British magical Championship's so we have got 2 Gala's. Derek Actually swapped with someone near the end of the auction so he had a little rest.

I love manchester, Urbis museum is pretty cool, but full of dirty moshers!

Few cool kids around.
But don't know of any magic clubs, maybe yellow pages, or google?
Or start your own.

The best part about the convention is the dealers rooms. I have never seen so much magic stuff in one place in all my life. Its unreal. I can't wait. I'm already saving up for it.

Have you got your tickets yet? Have you got any idea whos gonna be there?

yeah i've had my tickets for ages as for who is there: take a look at : www.blackpoolmagic.com
I agree about the dealers halls, they are amazing, I also quite like the Bar area, The Spanish hall Bar is quite a good hangout, Paul Zenon hangs out there alot.

Who care about Sankey? Daryl will probably be there as a dealer anyway, and there are some good magicians there.
-Jean Pierre Vallarino
-Paul Green
-Billy McComb
-Rick Merrill
-Aaron Crow
They are all great Magicians, they may not be Marketed by Penguin or
E-L-L-U-S-I-O-N-I-S-T But who cares they are still good. They are like a Farm Shop is to a supermarket, They have Good Quality Material.

Agreed. Daryl wasnt mentioned on the line up last year but he was still there so he will probably be there this year too. Regardless of who is there its always good to be around other people who share your passion for magic. Thats what I like about it, I dont know anyone personally who does magic (well I didnt before the magic clubs etc. anyway) and stuff like that is a rare chance to be able to talk about magic with people who are at the same level.

Well usually if a dealer goes there once they generally continue going year after year, It is a great oppertuinity to make alot of money in a short period of time. There are many American dealers who go and also lots from Europe and Asia and a couple from Africa, I'm not sure about Oceania.
