The Session

The Session is a conference for serious close-up magicians. Based in the regency spa town of Cheltenham, you'll learn the true secrets of performing amazing close-up magic from some of the best in the industry.

With a variety of workshops, lectures, parties and plenty of time to session (of course), it's no wonder that The Session has sold out every single year.

With one-off events and lectures designed specifically for this event, The Session is not just a conference; it is a learning experience like no other in magic.

Unlike any other magic convention:

  • Lectures, talks and shows
  • Two days of intense and fun magic lectures and shows!
  • Discounted hotel accommodation at the convention venue: Thistle Cheltenham
  • Organised by Andi Gladwin & Joshua Jay of Vanishing Inc.
