There are lots of different magic societies all over the country. The Mersey Dee Competition is an inter-society competition, held every two years.
This year’s competition was held in Liverpool, hosted by the
Liverpool Magic Circle. The other societies taking part were the Chester Guild of Magicians, the Liverpool Mahatma Magic Circle, and the North Wales Magic Circle.
Together with David Baker, Jay represented the North Wales Magic Circle in this year’s competition.
Although they didn’t win, they had a great time, and were proud to represent the NWMC.
This year’s winner was the Chester Guild of Magicians, represented by Stephen Cooil and Scott Prior.
Lots of people came to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday with the North Wales Magic Circle in Abergele.
It was a great evening, featuring performances from several of our members; with a wide range of magical styles including a children’s magic show, stage and cabaret performances; balloon modelling, and close up tricks.
Jay performed a short cabaret show, and close up magic to the guests.

Jay was presented with the trophy for winning the North Wales Magic Circle
Close Up Competition at the NWMC annual dinner last weekend.
The presentation was made by the NWMC president David Baker, and the president of the British Ring of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Paul Ray.
As well as the awards ceremony, there was also a wonderful three course meal, followed by a cabaret show featuring amazing magic from Paul Ray, Destiny, and Graham Jolly.
The dinner is always a great chance to dress up and have a wonderful evening.
I also thought you might like to see my nails for the evening – tiny little rabbits in top hats!
Thank you to Janet, the NWMC photographer for letting us use her images!
Jay took part in the North Wales Magic Circle close up competition in Abergele on Tuesday. There were ten competitors in total, who each entertained the audience with ten minutes of close up magic.
The standard was very high, and Jay was speechless when he was announced as the winner!
