Who's on the bill?


YMC Chairman Kevin Doig is DELIGHTED to announce that JAMIE RAVEN (the real winner of Britain's Got Talent) has agreed (no, indeed WANTS) to be there and has managed to squeeze us in to a hugely busy schedule. Yes - JAMIE RAVEN will be headlining the Gala Show.

After the success of compering the Young Magician of the Year this year, huge success in BBC's "Killer Magic", and starring in West End hit "Impossible" we are thrilled that BEN HART is compering the Gala Show - and will be with us throughout the day including as one of the competition judges.

President of The Magic Circle (and YMC) SCOTT PENROSE will also be with us the whole day and will be sharing many of his magical experiences with us in an EXCLUSIVE TO YMC interview. It is with great pleasure that we announce that regular MAGIC magazine columnist, recently featured in Secrets magazine, and ex-YMC member ANDI GLADWIN is lecturing for us in the afternoon. We are overjoyed that star ventriloquist and fourth place Britain's Got Talent finalist STEVE HEWLETT will be appearing in the Gala Show. You will be as pleased as we are that YMC favourite, Alakazam vlog star and extraordinary originator of some great effects, DAVE LOOSLEY is doing the early morning mini-lecturette. Wow! What a line-up!


The stage competitors:
• Luke Oseland, Callum McClure, Theo Mellor, Billy Roche Menezes, Oliver Paice, and Fletcher Ransberry
and close-up competitors:
• Stephen Friend,  Joshua Hennes, Dean Leavy, Callum McClure, Joe Oyelade and Amos Wollen
complete this great line-up.


As well as regular dealer (and Komedy Kup sponsor) KAYMAR, in our dealer hall this year we again have ALAKAZAM and also, for the first time, CARD COLLECTION who I know you will love.
