27th December 2013 – Blackburn Magician
Still no time for all the food I ate over Christmas to settle, as I head up the M6 to Blackburn (specifically, the lovely Mercure Hotel)to perform as a Blackburn corporate magician, for Flexipol. The MD had seen me perform for some his guests at Everton Football Club, and wanted me for their annual ball, as a surprise for his staff. He was looking for someone to entertain his guests during the cocktail reception and between courses of the meal, to help build up the atmosphere and guarantee that they all have fun!
Christmas is a great time to perform. Not only is it my busiest month, it’s also a time that people enjoy, so everybody is in a great mood and receptive to having a strange Blackburn magician approach them and perform card tricks!
There was a band on and also a fun photography event too, so it was great to be able to fit between these two events, without stopping people from enjoying either. Magic is a great filler for those dead times at an event where guests attention could wander!
