The Southern Magician of the Year is a recent addition to the Jumbo Day programme but has proved very popular.
This year we have teamed up with magic supplier Prop Dog to once again present this competition. We are looking for between 5 and 8 acts to take part with the winner receiving a magic prize worth £100 plus all performers get their whole day for free. The winner is voted on by the audience.
If you are interested in taking part please contact the Portsmouth and District Magic Circle by email by clicking on the Contact option on this website. at the start of your message put the heading “Southern Magician of the Year“
Your act needs to be between 8 and 12 minutes long and will be timed. An adjudicator will be in each room and after 8 minutes will show a green card which means you are between 8 and 11 minutes and can finish. At 11 minutes an orange (or amber) card will be shown to indicate the last minute. After 12 minutes a red card is shown and you will be disqualified so do stop before the red card.
Remember you will be performing in 2 rooms so you will need to reset after your first performance.
The prizes are donated by Prop Dog magic and 1st Prize is £100 in Prop Dog vouchers and 2nd prize is £50 in Prop Dog vouchers.
The cost of your ticket will be refunded to you at the end of the competition.
At the start of the show all audience members will be given a voting card. Anyone who arrives after the the first act has started or any audience member who leaves the room before the last act has finished will not been permitted to vote
