This year was the first year to have a separate children’s program. From the feedback both children and adults alike loved the slightly different feel this gave the event. The ethos from the very start was to give the kids the same quality of event that the adults have been enjoying over the years. Steve Price and his balloon lecture for the children was a particular success. The also made a six foot Dragon Illusion.
Three Ideas was a particular favourite of the delegates. Congratulations to Prof David Hatch who won the Stage Competition. Mark Shortland entertained us with his Public show and Lectures. Other Star Lectures and Entertainers included among others Dr Matt Pritchard with his exceptional science based presentations. Finally it was great to see Charlie, our very first winner of the FCMUK young magician award.
