Filling a theatre stage with a snowstorm this September was just one magic trick which won South Croydon magician Gordon Drayson the trophy in the Kidology UK Children’s Entertainer of the Year Competition held in Wolverhampton on the 8th September.


Winning a trophy and automatic entry to the UK Children’s Entertainer Of  The Year competition to be held at the Blackpool Magic Convention in February 2016, Gordon performed his act, specially created for the event, to about 25 children and 100 other children’s entertainers. Votes were cast by the adults in the audience, so to be voted best by his fellow entertainers is a great accolade. Gordon said “I was surprised and pleased to win this competition and now have to prepare my act to perform in Blackpool, in the Winter Gardens Opera House, which has a capacity of nearly 3000 people and is one of the biggest in Europe, so no pressure there!”

His act for the Kidology Competition took his audience back to their childhood, asking the important question “Do you believe in magic?” and featured a talking drawing board and the snowstorm that filled the stage.
