International Magic Lantern Convention 2017
We are pleased to announce that the 10th International Convention of the Magic Lantern Society will be held at the Birmingham and Midland Institute from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th April 2017. There is a full and exciting programme in preparation which will, as always, also give members plenty of opportunity to meet new members and greet old friends.
In addition to the usual features, including an exclusive limited edition publication, this Convention will, for the first time, feature a ticketed event on the Friday night, open to the general public but included in the Convention price. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook as we reveal the full programme and help us spread the news by using the #MLSconvention hashtag.
