London Magician - in and around South London
This weekend saw me all over South London. On Friday I was helping a couple of other Magicians who was putting on a Mind Reading Show at the Bromley Court Hotel. Packed audience of adults who went away wondering how Magic and Mind Reading was done.
On Saturday I had a childrens Magic Show in Lee in a great pub called the Crown. They must have spent a fortune on doing the place up and it looked a million dollars. Had some great kids that came up that made the show - this is always the case. I then went on to Nunhead for another Children's Magic Party. Great lot of 5yr old kids but also a couple of teenage cousins. Obviously what floats a 5yr old is very different from a teenager. Afterwards they came up and asked me why I hadn't done anything with cards or coins. I did some Close Up Magic for them and explained this is what I would have done for them. They were amazed and said so but they also said "You did good" during the show for the younger ones. This is high praise indeed coming from some teens and told them so. Taught them how to do a prank magic trick which they also really enjoyed.
On Sunday I had another Magic Show in East Dulwich. The birthday boy was dressed up to the nines in a top hat which had a false bottom and from which he was able to produce his stuffed rabbit. Came up at the end to make sweets and the look on his face when the sweets appeared after he had used his magic wand was a joy to behold
This week I have resilience week in a Private School in Central London where they want to learn Close Up Magic with coins and cards - been there for the last four years so must be doing something right.
