Yesterday was Mothers Day and this meant lots of special events and lunches going on. I was invited to perform some close-up magic at two of them and it made for a very enjoyable day.
First I travelled to the Blue Mountain Golf Club in Bracknell. There were over 100 guests of all ages and the mixture of card magic, coin magic and a few balloon animals went down really well. The "50p trick", which I tried out for the first time, was a big success and will definitely be featuring in my future performances.
Then I jumped in the car and whizzed up the road to the Compleat Angler in Marlow. This is a superb hotel with a first class restaurant set right on the river. I didn't want to distract the diners from their excellent food so spent most of my time performing for people in the bar area. This proved a great success as the relaxed atmosphere and spectacular surroundings created a perfect setting for some feats of "Derren Brown" style mind reading. It was a real pleasure to perform magic in such an amazing hotel.
Hopefully I will be returning to Blue Mountain and the Compleat Angler in the near future. Watch this space!
