One of the great joys of being a magician is just how different each day, and is event I'm able to perform at is. I received a phone call from someone called Nick, who had been recommended by services as a close up magician by a friend of his who had seen me at another event. Nick was arranging a 70th birthday party and was having his friends and family around to his house for a BBQ, so was hoping I'd be available to perform during the afternoon. His house was in Urmston, Manchester, and there were around 70 invited guests, so I suggested that around 1 hour of close up magic would be perfect for the day.
The weather wasn't brilliant (typical British summer, and all that) but that didn't stop anyone from a having a great time! Under the cover of the marquee in the garden, the guests gathered around and applauded, laughed and and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the magic. There was just such an infectious joyfulness about the day, that it would have been impossible not to have a good time, so it was a real pleasure to be a part of.
I was able to grab a burger from the BBQ before I left as well, result!
