7th November 2013 – As part of my work with Everton, as their official magician, I was asked to perform magic for their “An Evening With Roberto Martinez” night, held at the famous Aintree racecourse. I was to perform during the drinks reception (a great time to perform; just as people are arriving and the host is looking to break the ice and build some atmosphere). I wandered round performing close up magic before people went through to the main room to enjoy the show!
Here’s how the gorgeous venue looked before everyone arrived. The more keen eyed of you will be able to spot Sky Sports presenter, Julian warren, who was hosting the event, rehearsing.
Not only was I lucky enough to be performing at the event, I also had been invited to eat…and I got a front row seat!
Also on the bill was Mark Langley, a brilliant impressionist, who brought along Steven Gerrard, David Moyes, Alex Fergsuon and a whole host of characters – Mark is a genuinely funny man!
There were a load of raffle prizes given away to fans too, and it was a superb night. I really enjoyed myself and I also booked two gigs from the gentlemen sat either side of me at dinner. It’s quite strange to book work whilst eating a gourmet meal!
