What I heard last was they were working out the details of that, that was from one of the UK info sites like MAGICWEEK.CO.UK. One was Max to do his full show. But I did not see it on the Blackpool site yet, we can hope. Check the blackpoolmagic site for the latest updates. As you know from past venues, they are always working on things like that if they can make them happen until the last moment. One year I was added 2 days before the convention due to Billy McComb's cancellation. That was a fun scramble to prepare for a lecture and Master Class of 1400 in the theatre in 2 days. Yikes But it all worked out fine. Of all the conventions we attend, this one we will never miss. And now with the Street festivals going on at the same time, there is no place on earth as much fun for magic.

Just a reminder, year after year the Gala Show tickets go on EBay weeks before the event. In other words, this sells out, and last minute regisrations typically do not get Gala Tickets. The theatre only can hold 3000. The 3,000-seater Opera House is one of the largest theatres in the United Kingdom. There are just 5 weeks to go.

This will be my first time for the Blackpool convention and look forward to it.

If I attend all lecture sessions, how many lectures will I be able to attend?

Over 18 lectures, and then there are other sessions as well. Its like a one year college curriculum packed into three days. But there is an excellent coffee bar in the lobby, you will need it.

So it is possible to see all? I mean, are there lectures at the same time where you absolutely have to miss one lecture to attend an other?

Yes, check the schedule on their site by the way, it's all there. It appears, like most events, there is no overlap on lectures. Check Convention Program 2010

Just keep checking the site. But if you are going, what does it really matter. You will love it. Stop by our booth and say hi. When you come down the stairs from the lobby, second aisle to the right, just behind Queen of Hearts - Colin Rose. You can't miss us, well maybe you can, usually a crowd in from but 6' high banners say Wizard Craft Magic.

Blackpool 2010 - set for another record. The offer of a free book for everyone registering for the Blackpool Magic Convention before 1st January proved so popular that an additional print run had to be ordered and all VIP tickets have now been sold. Some Gold Cards and tickets for Saturday and Sunday events can still be obtained if you act fast. Once again, Blackpool looks like it will be achieving another record attendance. If you have not yet booked visit http://www.blackpoolmagic.com as there are less than six weeks to go.

Beat The Wand At Blackpool 2010 Needs You
by - Andrew Webb

Beat the Wand is back for Blackpool Magic Convention 2010, and they want it to be bigger and better than ever but that is only possible with your help. You’ll remember from our coverage last time that Beat The Wand 2009 was a great event, so please support the guys this time round as well.

The organisers want a magical flavour to the night but are particularly interested in increasing the variety aspect of the show.

Juggling, Escapology, Contortian, Geek Magic, Bizzare, Occult, Mind Reading, Ventriloquism, Mouth Juggling, World Record Attempts….

We know you guys are out there!!! If you are interested in performing here are the rules…

Your act must last a minimum of three and a maximum of five minutes.
Three giant wands will be thrown into the audience. After an act has performed for one minute the “voting” begins. Once a wand holder has seen enough of your act they will place their wand in the air. If three wands are in the air the act will stop.
If an act reaches three minutes they are safe and will be allowed to finish their act.
The act who performs for the longest and/or completes their act will have “beat the wand” and therefore be the winner. In the event of more than one performer completing their act, the audience will decide the winner.
Performers will be supplied with a hand or lapel mic, a table and two chairs. There are no cameras or screens in the bar so close-up/table magic will not be suitable.
If you are interested, or know someone with a crazy act who would love to be involved then please contact beatthewand@hotmail.co.uk
