Close-up Competition 16/3/11

Coins, cards, cups, balls, wands all had their place as eleven of Ilford’s finest magicians took turns to work their magic in what proved to be an extremely close competition. The evening, hosted by Brian Fisher, saw the magicians perform close-up magic for groups of amazed spectators. Laughter and applause broke the tension as the three judges, led by Rob Page MIMC, scored each performance for entertainment value and magical content. After all had performed, the judges retired to compare notes and make their decision…

Congratulations go to Paul Clancy the TIMS close-up magician of 2011, well done! 

Thank you to all of the competitors, the standard just keeps getting better and better.
