Yesterday I drove over to Guildford to do some magic during a long service lunch at the Holiday Inn. The company likes to recognise staff who have been with them for a length of time and there were people with 5, 10 ,15, 20 and even 35 years of service. Everyone was presented with a certificate and treated to a very nice meal and, as an extra surprise, some magic and mind-reading! As it was a work-related event the first couple of people that I spoke to were rather bemused that someone should be chatting to them and then suddenly knew their star sign, birthday and a word they were thinking of but as the afternoon went on (and a few glasses of champagne were drunk) everyone relaxed and had a great time. Thanks to Emma for organising it all.
Today was my first wedding of the year and it was at Rivervale Barn which is one of my favourite venues (and not just because it's only ten minutes drive away!)
It was the wedding reception for Daniel and Kylie and although there was a lot of rain earlier in the day the weather brightened up for the afternoon, which greatly helped the photographers. I did two hours of close-up "mix and mingle" magic including my latest speciality of mind-reading the passcode on someone's phone, which I did successfully several times to great reactions.
Thanks to all of the wedding guests for making me so welcome and joining in with the magic with such gusto and, of course, many thanks and congratulations to Daniel and Kylie.
I'm currently taking bookings for 2014 and 2015 so if you would like to add something amazing into your wedding day then get in touch and we can get everything arranged to astound your guests!
My New Year's Eve was very busy as I'd been booked to do magic for 450 people at the Blue Mountain golf club in Binfield. This is a family event so I was mixing together different styles of magic for all ages - from 2 to 80! It was a great night, thanks to everyone who came along and to Sally and Marius who arranged and ran it all.
I have lots of exciting plans for 2014 including a TV audition next week and a forthcoming appearance on stage at The Magic Circle. More details soon...
