Lion Quays – Trix in the Stix Magic Convention

Lion Quays- Shropshire

Here are just two photos from an amazing children’s magic convention I attended this week . It is called Trix in the Stix. Named, because we learn our craft from an amazing convention centre called Lion Quays in Shropshire that is in the middle of nowhere.
I was lucky enough to be asked to produce a power presentation, or mini lecture.
I talked about the Power of Personalisation, or how I learn 20 party guests name in about 10 minutes. The talk was well received and I had a lot of fun doing it.

For the rest of the convention we were treated to lectures, shows and a chance to buy all the props we need to keep our magic shows fresh until next year. We had stalls with crazy costumes manned by Heidi and Brenda. They always had a tin of sweets to keep passers by happy.

The convention is run by the Practical Magic team. They have a  very colourful stall with all the latest in magic design.

I didn’t buy very much this year. I picked up some wonderful star sponges and a couple of squeakers to go with a new lamb puppet.
