Trix In The Stix's 2017
« on: May 21, 2017, 11:55:55 AM »
I'm off to the Trix magic convention this afternoon.
It starts tomorrow afternoon and goes on till late Tuesday.

It's usually a sell out, well it was but a few people are selling tickets still over on the
facebook page as they have had to drop out of coming.

So if you wanted to come along you might still be able, I enjoy the convention.

I took a few pictures from the workshops/lectures etc.

The convention was dedicated to Jeremy, He was a lovely man with time for everyone.
And the convention did him proud, many saying it was the best one ever.

Cheryl opening the convention and saying a few words
Quentin with his pocket mouse routine.

Max and his power presentation, the Quieten and his lecture.
The ribbon effect was very funny and usable and the dressing up for children would work fantastic.

Dave was making the apple for his 30 day challenge so he could add the worm.
Ken Scott and lecture number one, the rope effect looked very magical and seemed to be the hit of the day for some.

Julie with her power presentation on remembering children's names.
I have to say Julie had a nice way about her, did not rush. It was an excellent presentation.

Martin and his talk on getting shows into schools.

There was an extra prize in the raffle, the side banner that Gary used in one of the sketches
from the late show. Everyone signed the banner.

There were also a couple of special awards.

Then it was Ken's last lecture which was mainly on sound systems/effects/apps etc with remotes and foot switches.
Lastly it was to the bar and a mini balloon jam.

Heidi made a candle and stand and Royston who flew over very last minute for the event made the star wars design.

The last pictures I have from Trix.
Heidi made the bike from the fidget spinner that Stuart put together.
Heidi has never twisted before, I thought it was a good effort.

Kelly and her Mr Tickle.
