There will be lectures from John Archer and Dave Forrest (both of which I am looking forward to) as well as a few dealers, competitions (these are dependent on the numbers of entries), a Close Up Show, a Gala Show boasting a line up including John Archer and illusionist Guy Barrett and a farewell lunch on the Sunday afternoon. But that’s not all that this convention is about. SAMS is, traditionally, a time for getting together and meeting up with friends old and new. It’s always a fun weekend.
Cost of a full registration is £45 for the weekend. For more details e-mail Janet Colvan, the SAMS Registration Officer.
