It’s Magic – British Magicians Choose Great Yarmouth for September Convention

The International Brotherhood of Magicians British Ring Number 25 is coming to Great Yarmouth for the first time since 1991 for its annual convention from 26 to 30 September.

More than 500 magicians will descend on the Norfolk resort for a packed programme of competitions, lectures, public events and magic in the community.

Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee will headline the gala show at the Britannia Theatre on Saturday, September 29, which will also include Norfolk magician, Roy Davenport, performing his ‘sawing-in-half’ illusion.

Other magicians booked to perform during the convention are Andrew van Buren, Michael Vincent, Nick Einhorn, Scott Penrose, Craig Christian and Richard Cadell & Sooty.

Alan Carr, Head of Tourism Great Yarmouth said: "It is going to be a truly magical five days. We are really looking forward to welcoming back the International Brotherhood of Magicians British Ring. There’s going to be a real buzz in Great Yarmouth in late September with the magicians taking over the Britannia Pier, Hollywood Cinema and the newly refurbished St George’s Theatre for their special events. We are delighted that they will be bringing magic into the community, giving those unable to attend public events a taste of the best of British magic."

Brian Miller, President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians British Ring said: "We are delighted to be back in Great Yarmouth and look forward to enjoying the much improved facilities that have been provided since our last visit. We hope the local community will support our top class Gala Show on September 29th where they will see some of the best of Britain's magicians." and
