The Session 2017
Jan 6th - 8th 2017, London


The Session 2017 promises to be the best yet! In previous years our guests were sharing magic with the likes of Derren Brown, David Blaine, Dynamo, Rune Klan, 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 2017. We'll be announcing more info soon!

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.
