Pop Haydn has been booked by the sounds of things for the gala show so possibly a lecture or scaled down Scam school & dealer stand I imagine.

Thank you. Checking the BMS site, there seems to be no inclusion of Derek Lever's name in connection with the Festival this time. Presumably he's handed the organising wand over to others?

Some very exciting names there - check out Brendan Rodrigues if you get the chance, a great guy, great contact juggler, and superb magician.

Having missed last year's event I was unaware that Derek Lever ceased to be on the organising committee in 2016. The question posed is did he jump or was he pushed?

Anyway, last year included EuroFISM so it's only this year that differences become apparent.

There are signs that this event is diminishing, the programme is half the size, the three show tickets are on one piece of card the same size as for one show previously. I guess costs are all rising so economies have to be made. The usual auction of used magic stuff took place today, I'm now looking forward to seeing how the lectures and shows work out. :D

Oh yes, whilst I was quietly chuffing my fish and chips tonight by total chance I met artychris - amazing as two years ago it took all weekend to meet up! Good to see you again Chris!!
