It’s all Magic in Bergvliet

Western Cape teen battle of the wands returns to Cape Town this September!

Ten young magicians vie for provincial champion titles and top honours

The ultimate provincial magical teen battle of the year, the 2017 Western Cape Junior Magician Championships, returns to Cape Town’s Bergvliet High School on Saturday 23 September 2017.

This is it! The ultimate teen battle of the wands – the 2017 Western Cape Junior Magician Championships – will see the province’s most talented young illusionists compete for top honours and the titles, at Bergvliet High School on Saturday 23 September 2017.Image credit: Andrew Klazinga

Hosted annually by the College of Magic, Cape Town’s only magical arts organisation, the Championships will see ten of the province’s most promising young wizards go wand to wand in two thrilling contests for the Western Cape Junior Magician title and the opportunity to attend international magical events.

It is every teenage wunderkind for his or herself as they prepare to wow a judging panel of entertainment veterans and the audience with their competing acts in the dexterous art of Close-Up magic and stunning illusions of Stage magic.

While the judges deliberate about winners for the Close-Up and Stage magic events at 4pm and 7pm, audience members can enjoy the not-to-be-missed Street Magic Contest. The contest sees mischievous buskers perform their marvellous coin magic, card tricks and balloon modeling up close for fans who can then vote, via ballot paper, for their 2017 Street Magic Champion.
in addition to the exciting wizardry contests, audiences can look forward to a special guest performance by Bryan Miles, a master of the wicked manipulation of the mind and a performer who is trained in the art of thought deception. Bryan has performed across the globe, from London to Los Angeles, for movie stars and celebrities. His ground-breaking primetime SABC TV series, ‘One Day with Bryan Miles’ has had South Africans across the country questioning what is possible and what is not.  
Championships’ audiences can look forward to Miles’ mindblowing perfomance that will keep them questioning the potential of the human mind!

Celebrating its 37th year of teaching the art of magic and its allied arts as well as vital life-skills to children and adults in 2017, the College of Magic, a non-profit organisation and the only one of its kind in the world, has proudly hosted the Championships for more than three decades:

“It is an incredible honour to host the Championships, one of the most highly anticipated magical events of the year, once again. A family- friendly event of this nature not only prepares our contestants for competing in the professional magical world but it also gives magic fanatics a taste of astonishing entertainment they won’t soon forget!”, says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.

Where does the name Kreupelbosch come from?

Where does the name Kreupelbosch come from?

Have you ever wondered where the name #Kreupelbosch came from? Here is an excerpt from a piece written in the Bulletin many years ago by Hilary Mauve.

Where did “Kreupelbosch” get its name from?

The name “Kreupelbosch” refers to the yellow pincushion, Leucospermum conocarpodendron, which grew abundantly in the Cape Peninsula. It means, literally, “gnarled thicket”, a good description of the manner in which it flourished. As far back as the Dutch East India company days, theKreupelbosch provided one of the major sources of fuel at the Cape. The wood was converted to charcoal and used extensively for cooking. This is probably why today there is little sign of this formerly plentiful pincushion.
Has anyone in the area seen any traces of this yellow pincushion?
