I've spent a lot of time performing at events in London recently. It's a quick and easy journey from my home in Wokingham. Last weekend it was a particular pleasure to do magic at Fiona's wedding which was being held at the National Theatre on the South Bank of the Thames. She had hired their rooftop venue which is called The Deck. It has fantastic views across London and is the ideal spot for a party. I had been booked to provide "mix and mingle" magic during the evening and it was a bit of a dash to get there as I'd spent the afternoon performing at another wedding in Hartley Wintney. Luckily everything worked out OK and I was able to arrive well in time.
Fiona's guests were an interesting mix and I met people from the BBC, comedians and opera singers! The only break from the magic was when everyone stopped to watch a fantastic fireworks display launched from a boat moored just along the Thames - it was an amazing sight!
The magic went down really well and I received a lovely "thank you" email from Fiona the following day. I also had the chance to show my magical skills to some of the staff at the National Theatre and it looks as if I will be added onto their "recommended suppliers" list and performing for their clients there soon.
If you're planning a special event in London and would like a spectacular venue then I would highly recommend The Deck at the National Theatre.
