In just under a couple of weeks’ time I’ll be attending the world’s largest magic convention for the 26th consecutive year. It’s something I always really look forward to. I get to watch lectures by some of the leading exponents of this fabulous art, view the latest tricks, books and DVD’s that have been released and see some fantastic magicians perform their acts in the biggest theatre in Europe.
Some of my professional magician friends attend too and it’s great to catch up with them – but there are lots of them who don’t go. Some are jaded, others can’t spare the time, but I have to go, I really do! This is my job too, but it’s also an obsession which has never waned for over a quarter of a century and I strongly suspect it never will. Only 10 more ‘sleeps’ to go!
