The party was held in a private room deep within the Savoy and I spent a couple of hours fitting my close-up magic around the various entertainments that had been organised for the night. There was a quiz, a Secret Santa present bonanza, a comedy skit and, of course, some excellent food and wine. It was a pleasure to meet John Wriglesworth, the founder of the company, and do magic for his staff. One particular mind-reading routine using a random word chosen from a book didn't quite work tonight, maybe because the book being used was "50 Shades of Grey" and proved somewhat distracting to all concerned! However everything else went really well, even with a couple of people who were very determined to catch me out in any way they could (which is a bit of an occupation hazard in this line of work!)
Many thanks to John, his lovely guests, everyone at The Savoy and especially Jennie for organising it all.
