A brand new, one day convention that brings you three amazing lectures from British Magic Stars - Guy Hollingworth, Chris Power and Marc Kerstein.
'The London Close-up Magic Competition' where someone will win the ‘Anthony Owen Trophy’ and the highly coveted title of ‘London Close-up Magic Champion’.
As if that isn't enough, there will of course be the cream of british magic dealers and an evening show to ensure you leave the day on a high.
All this for only £50.
Tickets for this inaugural year are strictly limited, so book asap to avoid disappointment.
We are delighted to be starting a new legacy in magic.
As well as being crowned 'The London Close-Up Magic Champion', the winner of the competition will also receive
the ‘Anthony Owen Trophy’.
Anthony was a much loved force in British magic. Since his untimely death he has been greatly missed. He was a dear friend of our family and we are honoured to award the winner a trophy in his name.
There is only one rule - all acts must be between 8-10 minutes. If you overrun you will be disqualified.
Entry to the competition is free for all attendees.
If you would like to enter please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
There will be 10 spots available to ANYONE who wants to do a 4 minute set. BUT HERE'S THE CATCH, if your act comes in at between 3 mins 45 seconds and 4 mins long, you will receive a Certificate, the hefty sum of £4, and the respect of all your peers.
If, however, you go so much as one second under or over the 15-second 'Cash Zone'...you get nothing! A timer will be running and the audience watching, leaving the performer as the only person unaware of what time they're at.
Apply NOW! The 10 spots will be drawn two weeks before the convention, and we'll email you to let you know if you made it onto the bill. So get practicing, as the most creative act on the night will also win a mystery prize!
The venue is a 10 minute walk from Shepherds Bush tube station.
If driving, there is parking on single yellow lines in the area and Westfield Shopping centre and car parks is a 20 minute walk away.
