The Session is the UK's only close-up magic convention & attracts many of the world's best magicians. Based minutes from London's Heathrow airport, it's the perfect location.
The Session is the best close-up magic convention in the UK. Full stop. It was started thirteen years ago, in Gloucestershire, back when it was just a bunch of friends trying to make the sort of convention they wanted to go to. One that wasn’t too big. One that actively encouraged sessioning. One where the performers actually wanted to hang with the attendees.
How often would you be able to just chat with Chris Kenner and get his help on your Three Fly in the bar? Where else could you get a selfie with Tamariz, Dynamo, or Derren Brown? How amazing would it be to be able to talk about comedy timing with Mac King over breakfast?
That’s what happens at The Session. You’ll be encouraged to hang with your heroes and be blown away by people you’ve not heard of.
New for 2020: The Session is now a three-day event! Starting on Friday lunchtime, and finishing Sunday night, you'll be blown away by the line up we have!
We sell out every single year. With guests like Juan Tamariz, Derren Brown, David Blaine, Troy, Ben Hanlin, Daniel Madison, and Roberto Giobbi it’s easy to see why. Secure your seat at the table. Book for The Session now.
We'll be announcing the Session 2020 performers in just a few weeks!
Anyone who loves magic as much as we do. The Session attracts passionate magicians from around the world. It’s wholly inclusive and we’d love you to join us this year for what is proving to be the best convention yet – see the list of performers.
This is the really good bit. It’s only £155 for Fri - Sun, or £75 per day if you just want to come for some of it. You’re going to come away with more practical advice on how to improve your magic than anywhere else.
And our new hotel this year has rooms from just £74 per night.
Our mentalism convention, The Event, has grown into its own event, starting September 2020. The Session is now a three-day event!
It’s probably the best-located convention in the world. Just two minutes from Heathrow airport – making it very easy to get to.
Please note: we have exclusive use of the conference area and bar at The Park Inn. Only attendees (registered with badges) will be allowed access during the convention (and evenings). This year we will have door security to ensure that only registrants have access, and all registrants must show their badge to enter the conference area.
