Ice Cool with Alex
With the exception of the Double Lift in all its variations, the Elmsley Count (or, to give it its correct name, the Ghost Count) is probably the most used move in all of card magic. Tonight we celebrate that count and its creator, the late Alex Elmsley. Dig out your deck or your packet tricks and show us your favourite routine using the Elmsley Count. Of course, we’d also be very happy to see anything else the great man came up with.

No sitting down on the job here. Are you a stand-up kind of person? Happy to work on your feet? Then tonight is for you. Hopefully you’ve spent the summer honing your 10-minute stand-up act into an award-winning frenzy of magical entertainment. The compere for the evening will be last year’s winner, Tom Arnold, so let’s hope he has lots of entrants to introduce, all looking to walk off with the Sylvestre Wand (named after our club's co-founder, George Sylvestre) and the title the Cotswolds’ Stand-up Magician 2018.
