As the joint presidents, it was our role to present the trophies to the well-deserved winners of the competitions that we held throughout the last year.
Jay won the Stage & Cabaret competition, and as he couldn’t present the trophy to himself it was awarded to him by Rick Tynan, president of the Northern Magic Circle.
Our final duty as presidents was to hand over the chain of office to Janet Newman-Carty, the new president of the North Wales Magic Circle. We had a great year, and hope the year ahead is just as successful for the NWMC.
We’ve been featured three times in this week’s Rhyl Journal, on three consecutive pages!
On page 31, there’s an article about the North Wales Magic Circle’s 75th anniversary, and the event that we’re holding in the Botanical Gardens in Rhyl to celebrate. There’s more information in our previous blog post.
On page 32 there’s a feature on the recent Medieval Festival in Gwrych Castle, near Abergele. We’ll be posting a blog soon with pictures from the event.
Finally, on page 33 there’s coverage of The Greatest Show on Turf, an event in Prestatyn that featured escapology, hula hooping, and circus skills. Again, look out for an upcoming post with photos. You can also read the full article on the Rhyl Journal website.
The town of Camarthen is celebrating its links with Merlin by holding a festival to celebrate the Welsh Year of Legend. The festival will include Wales’ only street magic contest, featuring five magicians who have been invited to perform.
Jay is one of the five performers who have been selected to take part, together with fellow North Wales Magic Circle member Professor Llusern. The two are very much looking forward to taking part in the event, and being able to represent the NWMC.
The festival takes place on the 25th of March, and you can get all the details from the official Facebook page.
