Headliner Joe Monti
evening 26th October and Sunday 27th October 2013
Over the Labour Weekend holiday
Ring 160 and The Palmerston North Magic Circle present a 'Magicana
Weekend' over Labour Weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th
October 2013 at the Speirs Centre, Palmerston North. This
is the same venue as the 2006 International Convention which
starred David Williamson, Lisa Menna and Duane Laflin. The
lovely modern theatre for 360 folk is set in a complex that
offers several large rooms (including a room big enough to
rehearse a symphony orchestra) and a kitchen. There is plenty
of free parking also. This is the Arts Complex of Palmerston
North Boys' High School.
We have secured the celebrated American comedy magician
Joe Monti to be our headline act for the convention. He
will perform at the night-before show during a cabaret at
a downtown restaurant, give a rich lecture on Sunday and perform
in the Gala Show on Sunday evening. Other acts are under negotiation.
Details of other lecturers are yet to be finalised.
This is basically a one-day convention with a night-before
show cabaret, a full day of lectures, seminars, dealers' tables,
a bring and buy area for your 'pre-loved' tricks, books
and DVDs, a parlour magic/close-up competition and a public
Gala Show of high quality. The Monday morning is likely to
offer a last chance to visit the dealers and farewell your
friends. Convention Registration is likely to be about $80.
I have secured a special deal with the Travelodge Hotel in
Cuba Street (opposite our night-before show restaurant) and
this is the nearest hotel to our venue in Featherston St,
a five-minute walk away but also served by free parking. The
hotel deal is $105 for a double room per night. Full breakfast
for two in addition would be $141. Ring 'Travelodge Hotels'

As many of you know, the airport is only a five minute taxi
drive away from hotel and venue; the bus station is only a
few yards away from both the restaurant and hotel which is
also in Cuba Street. The venue and the city is very car friendly.
The Convention Organiser is Andrew Wilson
