ANDY Clockwise, from Harlow, is The Magic Circle Children’s Entertainer of the Year 2023.
On Sunday 19th November, The Magic Circle held it’s Children’s Entertainer of the Year competition in front of a sold-out theatre audience at it’s headquarters in London.
The competition was open to all members of the prestigious club which has members all over the World, and the six finalists were Professor Strange, Tony Baloney, Magic Kurtis, Flip, Mr Belldini and Andy Clockwise. The judging was decided by combining votes from Children in the audience – who put gold coins into boxes which featured a photo of their favourite performer – with marks awarded by the judges.
Congratulations to Andy Clockwise who was awarded first place plus £1000, Mr Belldini who was awarded 2nd and £500 and Tony Baloney who was awarded 3rd and received £250.
Andy, who has been a Children’s Entertainer for 27 years and is a favourite with Celebrities Children and performs regularly on P&O Cruise Ships, said “What an incredible line-up of talent and what a show.
The atmosphere in the theatre from the families was incredible and I’m overjoyed to have won it. I’m so pleased that The Magic Circle recognises this branch of our art as well as Close-Up Magic and Stage Magic.
Children’s entertainers are so important and are quite often a Child’s first experience of Magic and live entertainment at Birthday Parties. Being presented the award from a legend in Children’s Entertainment, Terry Herbert MIMC, makes this win even more special.” Previous accolades include being recognised as one of the greatest Children’s entertainers in the World in 2008, and the UK’s Children’s Entertainer of the Year National Champion in 2012.
