Award-winning magician, Leon Andersen, will host the two day magic event.
Ennis, County Clare, is set to host Ireland’s first international magic convention in over 10 years.
Treacy’s West County Hotel will see some of the world’s greatest magicians flock to its doors on November 18 and 19 for the inaugural Mid-West Magic Convention.
Limerick man plus award-winning magician, creator, teacher, author, and magical entrepreneur, Leon Andersen, is to host the two day event.
This is Mid-West Magic Society’s first time hosting a convention – and they plan to go above and beyond, bringing in top class dealers from all over the world. The event will also see world famous magicians attending and performing.
Canadian magician, Jay Sankey, who holds the world record for creating more unique magic tricks than any other living magician, has had his tricks performed by other world-famous magicians such as David Blaine and Criss Angel – and is set to perform at the gala on Sunday night, November 19.
Also performing at the event is Irish TikToker Aidan Murphy. Murphy has amassed over 1.6 million followers and 11.2 million likes on his TikTok where he performs his quick and shocking tricks in short videos.
Speaking about the event, host Leon Anderson 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 convention brings together magicians and enthusiasts from all over the world and will feature a diverse range of magic from close-up tricks to grand stage illusions.”
Andersen also mentioned that the weekend will conclude with a special magic show on the main stage on the Sunday evening – one not to be missed!
The event has been assisted through funding from the Shannon Region Conferences & Sports Bureau and Fáilte Ireland.
Danielle Devaney of the Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau commented on the event, saying: “We are excited about supporting this international event along with our partners Fáilte Ireland and look forward to establishing it as an important annual event in the magic circle worldwide. It presents a great opportunity for people in Ireland to view and meet with magicians from home and abroad as they put on a collective demonstration of their magical talents.”
