The Ilford Magical Society, supported by jugglers from Rhythm and Balls and street dance group Kryptic Fusion entertained a packed hall in Goodmayes. During the first half of the show, guests around each table enjoyed being fooled and entertained by four close-up magicians who performed miracles of magic right before their eyes whilst compere Kevin Bird kept the evening flowing with his own brand of magic and comedy.
Winners of the 2009 Essex Got Talent competition, Kryptic Fusion, opened the second half of the show with their high impact, fast moving dancing followed by performances from three of TIMS magicians: Paul Clancy, Alan Day and Bryan Porter. The lights then dimmed as illuminated clubs and hoops lit the stage as they flew from one side to the other under the skilful control of expert jugglers Glowball Exports . The evening ended with more magic as Michael Wilkie accompanied by Lynne and Bryony amazed the audience with their grand illusions.
All proceeds from the show will be donated to charity to support the work of The British Liver Trust.
Society President Bryan Porter said: “I would like to thank the organisers of tonight’s show: Roger Arnay and Alan Parish. This is the third sellout TIMS Winter Show the dynamic duo have organised and is the best one yet! Thanks also go to the performers, the technical crew and to the behind-the-scenes volunteers for their help and hard work decorating the tables and blowing up balloons earlier in the day.”
