This is my first year missing after 24 consecutive years of going . At least I will save a couple of thousand pounds , that's the only positive Gaz 😊


The exact reason I’ve never been Gaz. Lol

I have never missed a year in 23 so if anything is planned for virtual day I’m in!

Pretty much the same as me Chuds but I will wait for the next live one next year as I think virtual magic effects are rubbish in general and certainly not what I ever want to perform or promote Gaz 😊

I had this one on the list to go to in 2021. Had hoped to tie it in with some business travel while there. Will plan on 2022.

I agree. Scraping the barrel springs to mind.

Not so sure on that point Pelagius If the guys are offering to put on a lecture or dealer dem then all good for me. Now it doesn’t match being there in person but what else are you going to do?
It’s great that they are making a effort!

Enjoy the weekend

My only interest in Zoom is the brilliant song in 1982 by Fat Larry’s Band . I have absolutely no interest in virtual magic and particularly effects sold for that purpose . I will perform for real people and go to real Blackpool conventions like I always have when they start again . I am not that desperate to perform inferior magic just for the sake of performing magic , good things are worth waiting for Imo Gaz 😊

I know the song really well, I love it. But Gaz why don’t you feel the love of a virtual day out?
Grab a few plastic glasses of lager and turn the lap top on and enjoy the free show... bit like the Spanish bar, you have been to the Spanish bar haven’t you?

Lol Doric 😂😂 , I thought no one noticed . Sure I will miss it and of course I love the Spanish bar and you are right I could still watch the lectures so it does offer some value . I just have never been interested in virtual magic performances but I can see a lecture being helpful but I have a feeling they will be concentrating on tricks you can do on zoom so I am happy to have a year off and go to the real thing ( another great band back in the day ) hopefully next year . I hope you all enjoy it though and that I see some of you in person next year and have a few real pints together Gaz 😊

BMC put a message on the Convention Facebook page today advising that due to ongoing Covid restrictions in the UK, they are currently unable to put on the planned virtual event from the Winter Gardens, and will update us with the date and time as soon as they can.

Saves us for weeks of this was the trick of the Convention posts

Or the usual BS from the dealers that took along 3 packages or a so so trick

And advising it as a “ Sell out at Blackpool “

Surprised it’s not been postponed until the summer when we begin to see a relaxation of rules.

You're optimistic! Smile


I was, of course, right and this could easily go ahead from June 21 onward. Festivals have been given the green light too. 25,000,000 vaccinated in the U.K. now.

Hi just "attended" the BMC virtual convention. 6pm until 9.30 ish and it was great! All live performances from the Winter Gardens with John Archer interviewing after. I have never attended BMC but have always wanted to and now probably will.
