Birthday Party Magician: 12th July 2015. Cheadle, Hulme.

I don't perform at a huge amount of private parties in houses, but for some reason this month it has been really popular! They're brilliant fun to do - typically all the guests know each other already and there is just a great vibe around the day; so they're some of my favourite events to perform at. I received an email to ask if I'd be available on the 12th July 2015, to perform at a 70th birthday birthday party in Cheadle, Hulme. Sally, the lady who's birthday it was, wanted to add something different and unique to the day so thought hiring a close up magician to walk around the guests would be perfect. Naturally, I agreed... although I may be somewhat bias.

Sally had told me she was expecting around 50 guests for the day, so I said that 1 hour of close up magic would be perfect.

Holding the party in her garden (thankfully, out in the glorious sunshine), I was set to perform after the guests had eaten a specially catered hog-roast. The guests seemed to love the magic and Sally told me afterwards she couldn't have been more delighted with the response.

It was a real pleasure to be a part of the day and I was thrilled I was able to make it that extra bit special.

Happy birthday, Sally! Looking forward to being a part of your 70th.
