London Magician / Children's Entertainer Mixed Bag
This week provided a very mixed bag. On Friday I had a School Fundraising Magic Show which was sold out. As it was in West Norwood and less than a mile from home it was a bonus. It provided great fun for the Adults and Children - especially when their teacher was sawn in half!!
Children's Birthday Party Entertainer
On Saturday I had a children's Birthday party in East London (Clerkenwell). We did an hour and a half and the kids loved the Magic Show and the Fun and games afterwards. By the end there was some very red faces and a lot of thirsty kids.
In the Evening I had a close up magic show for a 60th Birthday Party in Regent Street in Central London. It was in a private room and they really enjoyed the Fun Quiz (although no one won the money) and enjoyed the Magic - especially the teenagers who were all willing to get involved. The parking was however a nightmare as the whole of Regent Street is being dug up for water mains repairs.
On Sunday I had a Children's Birthday Party in Chiswick. They loved the Magic and were keen to participate (sometimes too keen) but they all wanted to hold the Live White Rabbit at the end of the Magic Show and have their pictures taken with it.

London Magician / Children's Entertainer Half Term
Being half term you never know quite how busy things are going to be - but had a show on Friday in Tooting for a children's Magic Show, followed by a 1st Birthday on Saturday in Ealing. Being a first birthday you get all ages and quite often the adults. This time all the adults watched the show and got lots of positive feedback from the parents saying that they had enjoyed it as much as the children. I also did some Close Up Magic to the adults that went down really well and was asked for lots of business cards.
On Sunday I had a Magic Show for a Children's Party in Bermondsey. I had done the birthday boy's party when he was four and when they tried to book me last year they found I was already booked so made sure this year by booking me really early on. Again lots of participation from the adults and one lady held Fluffy the White Rabbit for the entire second half. She also went out to find some grass and leaves to give it so Fluffy felt lots of love and special attention.
Most magicians I know didn't go to the Blackpool Magic Conference this year and will try to make it next year. Also had a few enquires for Close Up Magic. One said that she had booked me a few years ago for her 40th Birthday and now wanted me back again for another special occasion as she said my Close Up Magic had been "great". Also may have one coming up for a Hen Party in Dulwich.
