Ireland will host its first international magic convention in over 10 years when some of the world’s most renowned magicians gather at Treacy’s West County Hotel, Ennis, on 18th and 19th November for the inaugural Mid-West Magic Convention.
World record holder Jay Sankey, TikTok sensation Aidan Murphy, and America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Ryland Petty are amongst the lineup for the gala evening performance on Sunday 19th, while event goers will be able to mix with professional magicians, magical hobbyists, dealers, collectors of magical apparatus, and other students of the art of magic throughout the convention weekend.
The international event has been secured for the Mid-West Region through funding support from the Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau and Fáilte Ireland.
Award-winning magician Leon Andersen from Limerick said:
“As Ireland’s first annual celebration of the art of magic in Ireland in over a decade, this is a significant moment for the country’s large community of magicians. The Midwest Magic Convention brings together magicians and magic enthusiasts from all over the world and features a diverse range of magic from close-up tricks to grand stage illusions to a Magic Marketplace where event goers can purchase tricks, books and other magical paraphernalia. The weekend concludes with a special magic show on the main stage at Treacy’s West County on the evening of Sunday 19th.”
