Local Magican Simon Rosselli of Amigo's Magic (www.amigosmagic.co.uk), from West Norwood swept the board at this years South London Close Up Competition winning the Close Up Championship and the best newcomer awards. Simon has been involved in magic for a number of years and a Member of the Magic Circle but only this year joined the South London Magic Society. Simon only decided to enter the competition a week before and only for a bit of fun. Having never entered a magic competition before and not wanting to reinvent the wheel (by making a new act for the competition) Simon set himself two criteria. 1) He would only use tried and test routines that he does when he's out doing Close up (stuff that works in the real world) and 2) Not to show a card trick!!!! (as he reckoned they would be enough of those on the night).
Earlier on in the year Simon performed in the Nettlefold Hall in order to help raise money to for a community buildng in S. London. Both performances were a sell out and over £1,000 was raised for charity. For a short video montage of the show please visit the website. Many thanks to all those who got involved to make this happen.
