Hi all. I have never attended BMC but have always wanted to. It is quite a distance from me and am now thinking of attending just one day,the Friday. To get the best from it I am thinking of travelling up on the Thursday and returning home either Friday night or Saturday morning. I am seeking advise from those who have been before. What time Friday would it start and finish and if I don't attend the gala would there be anything to do in the evening (if so I would go home Saturday but if not probably the Friday). Many thanks?

Hi does anybody know how well dealer wise this years Blackpool will be attended due to the pandemic.
Also attendee wise as I have been going 25 years plus on the bounce except last year (as was cancelled, but have heard very little about attendance etc this year.
As I only do the magic Café and no other form of social media I would appreciate any info.
Thank you Gaz

Blackpool magic club have said "that like all similar events they will comply with HMUK Government,NHS England,Blackpool Council and Winter Gardens regulations and restrictions that could be in place by 2022. If restrictions and regulations are enforced by HMUK Government".

Here is the link from Blackpool magic club regarding Covid FAQs https://blackpoolmagicconvention.com/cov......f4a-43bd

I'm hoping they make masks, passes and SD mandatory. Pretty irresponsible if they don't. It's people's lives that they're putting at risk if not.

Just checkd. Masks and social distancing are mandatory according to winter gardens website. Good. https://www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk/safe-and-sound

Let's hope covid passes are too.

It's just masks that are mandatory. Social distancing is written as encouraged.

So if anyone is caught without a mask and unable to prove they are exempt then they will be asked to wear one or leave?

If the majority of people at Blackpool aren't wearing face masks as per the rules then I will simply leave and ask BMC for a full refund. If I choose to protect and others choose to infect then I'd rather be elsewhere. I know many others feel the same as me.

I have written to BMC about the matter and await their reply.

Their reply will probably be a lot different than what actually happens.
If you are worried don't bother going, I am thinking of missing my first one in 25 plus consecutive years just because of people who share your views if I'm honest.
I will never ever be dictated to by anyone especially the minority, unfortunately the media pandas for them.

Masks are not 100% effective at stopping transmission but this doesn't make them useless. But the main point of them is to help stop the wearer from spreading the virus. The vaccinated can still be an asymptomatic carrier and therefore it can continue to spread to those more vulnerable and the immunocompromised.

The venue rules state masks must be worn. If people don't want to obey the rules then they shouldn't be allowed to stay. It's as simple as that.

BMC just confirmed that masks will be mandatory unless the WG changes the rules, which is unlikely. Good.

BMC just confirmed that vaccine passports must be shown. Great that they are taking the safety of attendees seriously. Two thumbs up.

Yes, and verified by the NHS or other official body, not just a personal LFT. This is great news for the safety conscious.
