If anyone is attending the Kidology convention and needs any balloons could I ask you to email
a list over to us as we are unable to bring the full range with us due to space in the car.
We will be selling at wholesale prices at the convention so cheaper that what is on the
retail website, thanks.

Details about the midweek convention can be found here,

There is one more lecture than is on the flyer...................by.............
yours truly, myself which is at 12.15 just before lunch.

It will be on balloons in my magic show with all the lines/bits of business
that I perform while making the models that work for me.............
and hopefully might work for you as well.

We got back just before midnight last night from the Kidology magic convention.
It all seemed to go well and the highlight for me was listening to the Richard Cadell
talk/lecture on Sooty. With all the history and how it came about etc etc.

Thanks to Alec, Gordon, Shane and the rest of the gang. Including all the staff at
the venue and the caterers who all worked really hard to make it a fun couple of days.

I have got a few pictures to post.

We could not set up till the afternoon so I made a few balloons while we
waited and watched the tech run for the children's entertainer competition.

Then it was the competition, Daz was first on with a dog puppet routine.
Then Jelly Kelly with a sweet routine.

PJ the showman was compere and Konk the clown was helping out
with entertaining the children before the show and keeping everyone amused.

The lady vent came all the way from Italy, originally from Japan so was venting in her third language.

Frostie was the last act with D'lites and the bra trick.

Then we were off over to the other hall to set the stand for the convention.

The evening cabaret that was celebrating the formation of Equity and of one of
Birmingham's great night club's of the 70's.

Alec scrubbed up well, I enjoyed the vent act. I had not seen the telephone
conversation and she had a nice section with the talking goldfish.

Then it was the comedian, I have to say he was what one might say old school but
Lyn and I found him to be very funny and laughed away as did what seemed
like most of his audience did as well.
