A second 'spell' at Bell St. Albans doing a show + workshop for overseas students in the settings of their Hogwarts styled school was followed later in the week by an amazing booking at Warwick Castle for their Staff Party with a War of the Roses theme. Photo opportunities aplenty... a shame my phone conveniently ran out of charge... grrrr. Being surrounded by suits of armour and medieval weaponry in The Great Hall was a perfect backdrop to the occasion.
For the sake of a picture, here's one of Suzy and Keith from a previous wedding. Every couple gets their photo on the backs of playing cards....
Everyone likes cake! No-one more than me. Here's a cake that should never be eaten. It was for Alice's 5th birthday party and a I was doing my 2-hour party package. The theme was MAGIC. I'm sure you'll agree what a great design it is!
Trying to get a video together can be a real pain! Just tried shooting live footage at a school ball on Friday night (thank you Liz!). Very dark and very noisy conditions did not help. Then did a lovely wedding (Suzy and Keith) on Saturday in Nottingham... beautiful surroundings, great guests and a sunny day... but no video footage! Oh well... try again sometime! From the beautiful surroundings of Swancar Farm Country House to a pub for a 50th birthday party, kicking off with a short magic stage show and then strolling close-up. It was a wild night!
Has been a long time coming, but I now have this new website up and running. Hope you like it. It's an ongoing project, so will change a fair bit over the coming months.
One aspect of having a new site is the all my old blog posts are deleted. So this is the start of a new blog altogether which is why it is so sparse!
Getting ready for 5 gigs over the next two days... starting in Leicester (care home show), then on to Hertford (18th birthday party), Royston (kid's show), Peterborough (parlour show) and finally ending up in Coventry (40th birthday party). As you can see it's all types of magic for lots of occasions and will keep me on my toes!
Lots of weddings coming up over the next few weeks. Summer is booking up fast, so don't delay if you want to book me for your wedding event. Last weekend I did a wedding in Bingley Hall, Birmingham for Surinder and Reena (lovely couple)... every wedding booking gets playing cards with a photo of their choice on the back as giveaway mementoes after a card routine I perform (see below).
