On Saturday I drove to Oxford to do some magic at the wedding of Catherine and Jon. When they had arranged their wedding for late March they probably didn't expect the country to be covered in snow that day, but with the Winter we're having anything is possible at the moment. Some of the guests were coming down from Sheffield and a few unfortunately couldn't make it, but most did and there was a great atmosphere as I arrived at the wedding venue. I spent 90 minutes mingling with the guests showing them various amazing things and had a great time. Many thanks to Catherine and Jon for arranging everything and all the best for your future together!
Just a quick reminder that I'll be on ITV's Alan Titchmarsh show this Thursday (21st March). We filmed it a few weeks ago and although I spent around seven hours at the ITV studios I will probably only be on screen for a minute of two, that's just the way TV works! (By the way if you are scared of snakes then you might not enjoy it very much - spoiler!)
Well the last couple of weeks have been very busy - the wedding season has started and I've already performed at two in early March. Congratulations to Liz and Richard and Kayleigh and Phil! I was also asked back to my regular haunt of the Blue Mountain Golf Club to do four hours (!) of magic at their Mothers Day event. Lots of fun entertaining hundreds of people, if a bit exhausting. As you would expect there were a lot of children there, I don't think I've made so many balloon animals in a long time. At the other extreme I performed at a "Come Dine With Me" style dinner party - doing an hour of magic for just five guests. This included my lottery prediction. I write down six numbers between 1 and 49 and put them into a sealed box. The party guests then choose six numbers between them, open the box and find that I've predicted exactly what they've gone for - at odds of 14,000,000 to 1 against!
Something different again on Wednesday/Thursday as I travelled up to Earls Court Olympia for two days at a trade show. IT consultancy i-Realise had a stand and wanted to make sure that it stood out from the rest, so they asked me to go along and amaze people. It certainly had the desired effect and brought many prospective customers onto the stand (which ended up being one of the busiest at the show). Thanks to Claudette for arranging everything.
