The Magic Circle Close-Up Magician of the Year

Last Monday evening at The Magic Circle Headquarters, London’s most magical venue, members gathered for the annual competition to find the most entertaining sleight of hand magician.
 
Our congratulations to Pete Wardell who scooped first place with a variation of his acclaimed magic act. Pete performed a trick called the Cups and Balls, a classic effect that is said to be the earliest recorded illusion in the whole history of magic because a hieroglyphic of a man performing this trick appears in the tomb of Beni Hassan in the Egyptian pyramids.
 
To perform the Cups and Balls correctly, the magician must be an expert at many of the secret techniques that magicians use. Audience management, palming, direction of attention, invisibility, timing and sleight of hand are all essential to create the magic effect which HRH Prince Charles performed in 1975 when he took his examination to become a Member of The Inner Magic Circle.
 
On Monday, Pete Wardell demonstrated a really professional mastery of his craft when he scooped a cash prize and more importantly, the prestigious title of The Magic Circle Magician of the Year 2009. Congratulations to Pete, pictured here looking much happier than usual!
