Since winning the Kidology UK Children’s Entertainer of the Year in September 2015, South Croydon Magician and Magic Circle Member Gordon Drayson, known as Gordon’s Magic, has been working overtime to perfect and improve his act which won the National Children’s Entertainer Championships held in Blackpool.
Winning a trophy and £500 prize money, Gordon performed his act, specially created for the event, to around 1300 children and adults in the Blackpool Opera House. With a capacity of nearly 3000 people it is one of the largest theatres in Europe. Votes were cast by the audience, so to be voted the winner by the children, families and his fellow entertainers is a great accolade. Gordon said “I am so pleased to have won this competition – the other five acts were of a really high standard, as you would expect, so I had no idea how the votes would be cast.”
Gordon is now the current Kidology UK Children’s Entertainer of the Year, as well as the British Children’s Entertainers National Champion – a success that has only happened once before.
His act for the Competition took his audience back to their childhood, asking the important question “Do you believe in magic?” and featured a talking drawing board, virtually instant costume changes and the creation of a snowstorm that filled the stage.
