The Session 2016
Jan 8th - 10th 2016, London

There are still a small number of tickets remaining. Register early to avoid disappointment!

The Session 2016 promises to be the best yet! Last year our guests were sharing magic with the likes of Derren Brown, David Blaine, Dynamo, Troy, Ben Hanlin, Guy Hollingworth, Pit Hartling, Denis Behr, Daniel Madison, Roberto Giobbi, Juan Tamariz, and more. You would be CRAZY to skip The Session 2016. Here's why:

  1. We're coming to London! The Session has always been held a couple hours outside London, but we've decided to move to a location just minutes from Heathrow airport. Those flying in can even experience the driverless cars (we're not kidding) that take you from the terminal to the hotel.
  2. The Event - mentalism day We're starting a new feature on Friday that will be all about mentalism. In partnership with Session favorite Luke Jermay, we will be offering a comprehensive, intensive, all-day mentalism clinic on Friday January 8th. You'll have a chance to take classes, hear talks, and see unpublished and coveted material from a TOTALLY different set of performers to The Session. It's just £50 to attend on the Friday only or £115 for both The Event mentalism day and The Session). More about The Event
  3. The new hotel is actually more reasonable than the old hotel! It's just £70 per night, including breakfast.

The Event Surprise Guest

The UK's only close-up magic convention

The Session is a conference for serious close-up magicians. Now based just two minutes from Heathrow airport (making it very easy to get to!), 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.

  • Lectures, talks and shows.
  • Only the very best lecturers and performers.
  • Two days of intense and fun magic lectures and shows!
  • Discounted hotel accommodation at the convention venue: Thistle Heathrow Terminal 5.
  • Organised by Andi Gladwin & Joshua Jay of Vanishing Inc.
  • Has sold out ten years in a row
  • Brand new mentalism event on the Friday

The Thistle, Heathrow Terminal 5

We have selected a nice modern venue for The Session—plenty of room for lecturers, shows, dealer stands and of course, sessions! We’ve even arranged a heavily discounted rate for everyone staying at the hotel (£70 per night including breakfast, which is cheaper than the old hotel!). It is connected by driverless cars to Heathrow Terminal 5 (costing £5 each way) and takes just a couple of minutes to get to from the airport.
