Jimmy Green Wand
Monday 17th October saw an excellent evening of magic from 6 performers who competed for the Jimmy Green Wand Trophy for Cabaret Magic. They also entertained a good crowd of magicians, friends, and family. Neil Armstrong, Eamonn McClurey, Tom Daws, James Baker, Gary Bainbridge, and Brian Lesko were the competitors. The standard was very high and the judges had a tough decision to make!
The eventual winner was Eamonn McClurey with Neil Armstrong runner up.
MCM Entertains 'Newcastle Magic Circle'
Monday 26th September 2022 saw the Middlesbrough Circle of Magicians entertain the Newcastle Magic Circle at MagicBox in Newcastle.
There were 9 performers and a really good variety of magic seen. Tony Southwick (President) was the MC for the evening. Neil Armstrong opened with his very atmospheric, 'Jean the Code Breaker' routine. Steve Lewis performed his road sign routine as well as some card predictions torn into newspaper. Daniel Roberts performed his 'Heads Up' post-it card prediction routine.
Graeme Smith performed his Coin + Cork Cylinder Routine followed by his Mini Chairs Routine.
Brian Lesko performed ropes, coins and his paper balls into sponge balls from hat routine to music.
Martin performed a memory effect with a full deck of cards. Tom Daws performed his fork bending routine followed by a Wild Card Pokemon effect. Nimmo Clarke performed a disappearing drink miracle followed by some lovely card predictions. Eamonn McClurey performed his sympathetic matchboxes followed by his legendary Egg routine. A great night was had by all and it was really nice to share another night of magic with our friends at Newcastle Magic Circle.
