As we get closer to Christmas the party season really gets going. This is my busiest time of the year and, being one of the busiest magicians in the UK, that means very busy! Over the last few days I have done magic at a golf club in Brighton, a 16th birthday party, two weddings, two pubs, at Heathrow airport and on a boat trip along the Thames.
Being a boat trip magician was a lot of fun. I had been booked to do three hours of magic for an international group of clients on a luxury paddle steamer called the "Elizabethan". You can find out all about it via this link - http://www.thamesluxurycharters.co.uk/elizabethan
We set off from Westminster Pier, just opposite the London Eye, and cruised up and down the Thames, giving the foreign clients the chance to spot many of the famous London landmarks. I did an hour of "mix and mingle" magic while people had some drinks and then did a couple of hours of mind reading around the tables between the courses of the luxury meal that was served up for everyone.
One table was exclusively for French clients. Luckily my regular slot doing magic at Heathrow Airport means that I'm used to entertaining people whose first language isn't English and they loved the card tricks - ending with a round of applause and chorus of "Formidable!"
Many thanks to Alex for arranging everything, it was a wonderful evening and everyone had a great time.
