11th International Magic Lantern Convention

How to book

The Convention fee is the same as for our last Convention in 2017, £110 per person (£120 for late bookings sent after 28 February). This covers all performances and presentations (except the Saturday evening dinner/show); the exhibitions and sideshows; the auction; a half-price voucher for the Convention book; and morning and afternoon refreshments. Lunches are available to purchase at the venue, or there are many lunch options available nearby.

The Saturday evening dinner and show at the Library of Birmingham costs an extra £30 per person to cover the cost of venue hire and catering. If you would like to bring a guest who isn’t attending the Convention, please include payment for them with your own booking. The number of places for dinner is limited by the venue’s capacity – book early to avoid disappointment.
