The Blackpool Magic Convention began in 1952 as a one day event, 2018 will see the 66th Blackpool Magic Convention take place at the Winter Gardens,which is  a  truly remarkable achievement.  

The convention has grown from a one day event into a three day extravaganza of all things magic, and it has become a must do event for many magicians around the world.

The Convention is the largest of its kind in the world, with an annual attendance in excess of 3500 magicians. Blackpool Magicians Club hold  the world record for attendance at an event of this kind.

2018 will see the start of a new era for Blackpool Magic Convention, as it will be organised and run by a dedicated convention team, supported by Blackpool Magicians Club Committee and its members.

Over the years the convention has featured some of the biggest names in the world of magic, along with  up and coming stars of the future, some of which will be appearing in the UK for the first time, and this will continue for many years to come.

Whatever genre of magic you are interested in, Blackpool Magic Convention is  the must do event in the magic calendar.
