It's that time of year again when your convention team are pleased to announce the first names for the NMC 2012 Convention. The team have been working extremely hard to bring you a convention you can be proud of and to continue moving the convention forward. The convention is going to be billed as a Best of British with many award winning magicians taking part, all of whom are home grown. The first names to be released are Matthew Wright, Luke Jermay and Paul Gordon.

Matthew Wright
Matthew WrightMatthew is one of the most decorated magicians in the country having recently won the IBM Close-Up Magician of the year and also having won such prestigious awards as The Magic Circle Close-up Magician of the Year, The International Champion of Close-up Magic and being placed 2nd in the FISM European Championship of Magic. His quirky comedic style has seen him work all across the world. Matthew has recently released his Unusual Suspect DVD which has received critical acclaim. He will be lecturing and performing in the Close-Up and Stage Gala Shows.

Luke Jermay
Luke JermayMaking a speedy return visit to the convention is international Mentalist Luke Jermay. Luke has recognized what the convention team are trying to achieve and is championing the convention and Northern in many ways. Luke is the only professional mentalist specializing in corporate stage and private stage performances in the UK and is an authority on mind tricks. He has been a consultant and creative coach to the likes of Derren Brown who said of Jermay: ‘so creative and original... he puts the rest of us to shame’ as well as headlining his own one man show on the world famous Las Vegas strip which gained five star reviews and astonished audiences five nights a week. Luke is also a much sought after adviser for TV programmes having helped with Penn & Teller, David Copperfield and as an advisor of the recent Dynamo:Magician Impossible series. Luke will be presenting a new lecture as well as performing in the close-up gala and an extended excerpt from his stage show in the main Gala show.

Paul Gordon
Paul GordonThe Paul Gordon Close-up Card Magic Lecture has travelled the world in recent years. In fact, Paul has lectured in America seven times since 1997; the first being at Tannen’s Jubilee in New York and most recently at FFFF (Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic) in New York. In The UK, Paul Gordon has lectured for over 90 clubs since 1994 including three times at The Magic Circle. Not to mention his lectures in France, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Monaco (Monte Carlo All Stars), Scotland, Italy and Germany. Every lecture has received a 'rave' review! It’s entertaining and full of 'doable' usable magic from Paul Gordon's professional repertoire. If you think that card magic is awe-inspiring or, dare we say it, dull - you will be pleasantly surprised by Paul's great enthusiastic approach; he teaches a lot of magic – and more! Paul performs and teaches (in his fun & informal way) magic from his best-selling books & dvds. Paul is a good teacher and he makes the lecture informative, but not 'heavy.' Paul will be performing in the close-up gala and will be presenting his lecture during the weekend.
