11th International Magic Lantern Convention

Where to stay

Our former Birmingham base the Copthorne Hotel is no longer available, but we have found a great alternative and negotiated discount rates with Jury’s Inn on Broad Street, about ten minutes’ easy walk from our Convention venue. This is a high-quality modern hotel with all the facilities you would expect, including secure on-site car parking at an extra charge.

Reservations must be made directly with the hotel before 17 March 2022. The special rates (per room) for MLS members are:

  Thu 28 April Fri 29 April Sat 30 April Sun 1 May
Single room £79 £79 £99 £59
Double or twin room £89 £89 £109 £69

All these rates include full English breakfast. There is also a 10% discount on other food and drink purchased at the hotel. Bookings can be amended or cancelled with a full refund up until 14 April; after that the hotel’s standard cancellation conditions apply.

To reserve your room, go to, choose ‘Birmingham’ from the list of hotels, select your chosen room and dates, and enter the discount code JIMAGI280422 in the Add Promo or Group Code box (in the discount code the ‘I’ characters are a capital letter I, and the ‘0’ is a numeral zero). You can also book by phone, giving the same details, on 0121 606 9000 (+44 121 606 9000).

Of course you are free to make other arrangements if you prefer – there are many hotels in central Birmingham, and lots of good quality cheaper options in the suburbs of the city.
