Stuart Millward, House of Magic UK, writes: "Paul Pickford lectures at House of Magic UK, 80 Brook Street, Stourbridge, West Midlands DY8 3XB (Map) 7pm-9pm on Monday, 26th January. Paul Pickford released a DVD with Alakazam at the end of last year and has been a professional magician and card expert for over 20 years.

Magic Menagerie: Todd Landman. Truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion...

"Harking back to his youth growing up in Hemlock Hollow, Pennsylvania, Dr Todd Landman explores the notion of re-enchantment through the medium of magic and mind reading. His early days were spent as a young magician exploring the virtues of the Hollow while practising and honing his skills as a conjurer. Re-enchanting the self… His intellectual journey led him astray from these important roots, but through life in a small English village he finds them again and shares with you an extraordinary and inexplicable set of demonstrations that simply defy rational explanation. Part conjuring, part autobiography, and all magic in its widest sense. This is a different kind of magic, one borne of deep reflection and a commitment to understanding whether we can rediscover the ‘whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. Saturday 7th February at 7.30pm. Milton Theatre, Studio 1, The University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield HD1 3DH (Map). Tickets £8.00 / £4.00 (conc.)

Dundalk Day of Magic

Sunday 3rd May 2015. From the organisers: The Irish Ring 85 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians are pleased to announce that the headliner at the Dundalk Day of Magic on Sunday 3rd May 2015 will be the eccentric and outrageous performer Kieron Lefever. Kieron arrived on the Magic scene with a bang in the form of his 'To The Max' DVD, an effect that leaves the spectator with a block of ice in their hand and a true sense of astonishment. Since then Kieron has unleashed his highly acclaimed 'Chaotic' DVD and his ultimate finale to any impossible card location effect 'Remaxed Iceolation'. Expect something unique and entertainingly outrageous! This will be an exclusive appearance in Ireland and as well as his two-hour lecture and after-dinner cabaret appearance, Kieron will be sessioning all day, and probably long into the night! "Brilliant, mad, obsessive thinking, that has created spectacular effects. You are a true one off. Keep up the brilliant work." Andy Nyman Magician, Actor & Director.

The venue is the stunning Carrickdale Hotel and Spa which is now accepting overnight bookings. Mention that you are attending the convention for special one, or two, night deals. Accommodation on the Saturday night is extremely limited and likely to sell out within the next few weeks. Further lecturers, dealers and performers, as well as details of how to register, will follow in the new year, but anyone planning to travel and stay is advised to make arrangements as soon as possible as the convention falls on a Bank Holiday weekend.

Innovention 2015 -Liverpool

From the organisers: Innovention Convention 2015 and Liverpool Festival of Magic & Variety 2015. From the organisers: The previous two Innovention Conventions, held in 2010 and 2012 in Las Vegas, were completely unique with world class talent, unrivalled production values and VIP treatment for all registrants, spending time with all of the performers and lecturers. The Magic of Liverpool starts with the headquarters hotel, the Hard Day's Night Hotel, a unique Beatles themed hotel, just around the corner from the world renowned Cavern Club where the Beatles began their legendary careers. This is where most of the sessions, workshops, and interviews will take place. The aim of the Innovention Convention has always been to provide a forum for all working performers, whether full time pro's, semi pro's or part time performers, to learn from the very best and most successful magicians and speciality entertainers in the business.

Unlike other Conventions, at the Innovention we feature a few professionals, all of whom have performed thousands of shows at the very highest level. Instead of following the usual Convention schedules the Innovention Convention will focus on the many performing opportunities available to a working performer, including stage, cabaret, corporate, private parties, close-up and charity events. Just a few of the topics we will be covering include how to structure an act, how to create your own USP, how to choose the right tricks to suit your style, how to write comedy patter and deliver it, the importance of production, lighting, sound and music, microphone technique, working with audience volunteers, and how to maximise audience reaction and build your applause. We have some of the most commercial and experienced performers coming to Liverpool: Jeff Hobson, Michael Goudeau, Scott Alexander, Bob Kohler, John Fealey, Graham P Jolley and Paul Stone.

Our aim is to make the Innovention a unique and valuable opportunity for working performers. So, to make this event the best experience possible for those attending, we are limiting the number of registrations to just 100 people. Already from word of mouth alone, we have thirty registrations, so there are now only seventy places left, and we expect these to fill up very quickly. We will not be extending these numbers, because they work perfectly for the venue that we have chosen. The Innovention Convention takes place from 14th-16th July 2015 and then there are public Stage and Close-up, and Street Magic Shows on 17th and 18th July. To be a part of this very special event, send an email soon to info@innoventionliverpool.com for registration details.vern Club, where The Beatles began their incredible career. For full details and to register - email us at info@innoventionliverpool.com.

Dynamo Live Tour 2015

"Dynamo has quickly established himself as one of the world's most known and most loved magicians - he's walked on water, levitated above the Shard, walked down the LA Times Building, predicted the World Cup outcome and taken a trip on the side of a bus but now Dynamo faces his biggest challenge to date as the renowned street magician will take to the stage as he embarks on his first ever live tour. Dynamo will delight fans who, for the first time, will have the opportunity to see his magic skills up close and personal in what promises to be a spectacular and unique live stage production. Dynamo said of his new venture, 'After four series of Magician Impossible I was ready for a new challenge and for a long time I have wanted to take my show to the stage. I am hoping that like I did for magic on TV, I can reinvent the live magic show and produce something fans have never seen before. This is something I have been working towards for the last 20 years and I can't wait to amaze audiences with what I have in store for them.'"
