2008 marks the fifth year of the biennial contest to find The Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year.  The competition is designed to encourage stage, platform and cabaret magic.   Previous winners have been Scott Penrose (2000), Loki (2002), Duncan Trillo (2004), and Romany in 2006.

This year has seen an increased number of entries and heats have been organised to select the finalists who will take to the stage of The Magic Circle Theatre in front of a distinguished panel of judges.  There will be a mix of manipulative, patter, speciality, comedy and illusion acts competing, all hoping to take away the prestigious title and the valuable cash prizes.

This always exciting evening of magic will be held on Sunday 12th October 2008 with curtain up at 6.00pm at The Magic Circle Headquarters.   Tickets at just £16.00 are available from the CMA Box Office, 12 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HD, or telephone 020 7387 2222 between 10.00 am and 5.00 pm with credit card details at hand.  Seats are limited so early booking is recommended.
