Just one last show today and then this year’s Christmas party magic is over! This Christmas has been my busiest yet. Here are some of the Christmas parties and events that have stood out this year:
Performing magic in the same venue three times
Cheltenham’s brand new 131 The Promenade is a beautiful new venue. I performed at their opening event and then performed two Christmas parties there for the same company. It was great to get to know the staff and become familiar with the venue.
A few repeat performances
Being asked back to perform a year later is always a great compliment. I had a few repeat performances this year, so it’s always good to show audiences the close-up magic that I have spent the last year working on!
Some great gifts
I had some amazing clients this year who gave me some great gifts, including Google’s new mobile phone and some really nice Superdry clothes that I haven’t stopped wearing!
Performing in my hometown
I live in a very small town called Newent. Therefore it is always a very pleasant surprise when I get to perform here. This Christmas I performed at two separate events in the town, which was a lovely break from the typical long drives that I do!
Performing new magic tricks
Christmas is a great time for me to work in new tricks that I have been working on throughout the year. Along with my tried-and-tested repertoire, this Christmas I have been making smoke appear from between people’s hands, making cards appear under people’s watches and performing a brand new trick with a piece of rope. The tricks have already become a popular part of my set!
