Just Back from Blackpool UK

Posted on February 27, 2014 by Jay Sankey

What's it like to lecture and perform at the world's largest magician's convention? AMAZING. I started flying over to the UK every few years when I was just a teenager and I always have a marvellous time. The magicians are so friendly, and they have enormous respect for the art and science of magic.

The British people also have such a love of the English language. Playful, creative and smart. So much fun!

My Saturday afternoon lecture was 'standing room only' and was attended by well over 500 serious students of magic. Extremely humbling and inspring. And after the lecture, when a long line-up of my awesome fans 'suddenly appeared' for autographs, photos and 'quick chats' it was extremely flattering.

My good friend and crackerjack convention organizer Derek Lever promised to have me back at the Blackpool convention in a few years. I can't wait!!!
