Close Up Competition 2019
Tuesday 11th June 2019, 7.30pm
The Irish Heritage Centre, Cheetham Hill, Manchester
There is Magic in Manchester – and it’s closer than you think!
The main judging panel comprises of 4 judges – 2 magicians invited from outside the society, and two non-magicians from the audience. John”Sly” Smith will also be assessing the competitors’ abilities with pasteboards. Competitors will be judged on a number of criteria, including entertainment and magical skill.
Whilst entry to compete is limited to members of the magic society, you are invited to come along and watch the miracles for free.
Any member wishing to register their interest in competing should contact Max Townsend, Entertainments Officer who will also happily explain the rules if required.
Please note, competitors should be aware that this competition will be run as a “table hopping” style event, and as such each competitor will be required to perform their act more than once, with a short time between for any reset.
