For many years now, The Magic Circle has held the Close-Up Magician of the Year Competition, Stage Magician of the Year Competition and Young Magician of the Year Competition but never a Children’s Entertainer of the Year Competition. That is, until now, as on the afternoon of Sunday 17th November, The Magic Circle will hold its very first Children’s Entertainer of the Year Competition.

Only members of The Magic Circle were allowed to enter the competition and only 6 could make it through to this live final. The standard is very high and features some of the UK’s very best Children’s Entertainers.

We would like to encourage as many Children as possible to attend, and so audience tickets will be free for Children aged 12 years and under (no more than 2 Children per Adult). For Children ages 13 - 17 years, tickets will be £10 each and for everyone over the age of 18 years, tickets will be £15 each. Please note, Children under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult (the adult must accept responsibility for the child's conduct).

To make it as fun and interactive for the Children as possible, all Children (Children aged 12 years and under) in the audience will be voting for their favourite entertainer. There will also be a panel of three official judges who will also cast their votes and will be looking for presentation, entertainment and most importantly, magical content. The official judges votes will be combined with the Children’s votes and the outcome declared.

The winner of the competition will receive a Trophy and hold the title of “The Magic Circle Children’s Entertainer of the Year 2019”. Second and Third place will also be awarded.

Please be aware that the event will be photographed and filmed by our official photographer and videographer. Audience members are not permitted to take photographs or make audio or video recordings of the performances. By allowing their children onstage to assist the performers, parents are giving permission for their children's images to be used in our publicity. Volunteer helpers will be selected from the front six rows of the stalls so if you do not wish your child to assist please book seats further back.

The Magic Circle Children’s Entertainer of the Year Competition Committee (Andy Clockwise, Kevin Doig, Gordon Drayson and Paul Longhurst) endeavour to bring you the very best of Children’s entertainment at our Headquarters in November, so please do bring your Family and Friends and support what promises to be, a very magical and entertaining afternoon.
