The nearest would be a Day ticket but that also gets you into the lectures and the evening shows which is reflected in the price of £75.00 for those over 16, £55.00 for those under 16. The BMC website has all the options, see http://blackpoolmagic.com .

It includes the FISM Europe events and competitions so the day will be very full and you'll have to make choices as to what you won't be able to see. The Dealer rooms will be fairly quiet during the most popular lectures and events.

Recent years have seen different procedures but the latest is that Arthur Casson emails a PDF out to you which you need to print and take along to the Reception Desk at the Winter Gardens. In return you'll get an envelope of tickets, your badge and lanyard and also the souvenir programme. As this programme is rather large, personally I check the website the day before travelling and print off the latest details from there. Takes up less pocket space! Of course you could always download the programme details to your phone.

When do the pdf's get sent out, I've yet to receive anything other than order confirmation.
Also when can you collect the tickets? Can you go the day before, or
do you get them the day u go?

It seems to differ each year but I would imagine that if they haven't been sent out yet then it will be very soon. Arthur can probably advise more specifically.

The Reception area in the Winter Gardens is usually open the day before but with FISM Europe being included and the extra day, it cuold be different. Again, Arthur is the chap to ask.

(soundsmagic posted a somewhat inappropriate message but later deleted it- apologies of this makes the thread less smooth but it weren't our fault, honest guv!)

Nice idea but TalkMagic is a discussion board and we much prefer discussions to take place here.
