This annual battle of the wands is held by the College of Magic, Cape Town’s only magical arts organisation. It sees the Western Cape’s top young magicians go head to head in two categories – the intimate art of Close-Up magic and spectacular Stage magic.

Who’ll be on stage

This year’s line-up of competitors include Alfred Baba, Liam Hewitson, Eneo Hollenbach, Luvo Mrolota, Sahil Samlal and Jenna Shorkend.

Now in its 39th year of teaching the art of magic and its allied arts as well as vital life-skills to children and adults, the College of Magic, a non-profit organisation and the only one of its kind in the world, is ecstatic to once again present this popular annual charming event:

“The Western Cape Junior Magician Championships is the first opportunity for our students and contestants from around the province to get a taste of the real-life competitive spirit of professional magic and showmanship. I’ve had a sneak peek behind the wizard’s curtain to see what the contestants have prepared and I can guarantee the judges and spectators that they are in for several incredible treats. Join us this September and see the wonderful magical sports for yourselves!”, says David Gore, director and founder of the College of Magic.

Ringside tickets

A ringside seat ticket to all the incredible action is available at R100, with discounts available for family bookings. The Close-Up magic contest will be held at 4pm while the Stage magic contest will follow at 7pm. Remember – buy one ticket and it is valid for both shows – how magical is that?!

An early bird special ticket for magic fanatics is available at R75 per ticket until 10 August 2019.
