With all the amazing and interesting places that I have performed as a close-up magician, I thought I had seen everything. However, this weekend, I performed somewhere I would have never expected: a disused nuclear power station!
The Trawsfynydd station in Gwynedd, Wales is currently being decommissioned, which can apparently take twenty or thirty years. Therefore, their team of 200 or so employees needed a couple of magicians to entertain them on their onsite for their Christmas party and along with another fantastic close-up magician, I was happy to oblige!
It was a long drive into the middle of Snowdon, but the entire audience proved to be really fun and according to the client, her team really enjoyed being entertained by close-up magicians during their meal. I guess you could say, we got nuclear reactions from the crowd!*
* This joke was not made during the show, I promise!
