Flying the flag for corporate conjuring!
It was a great pleasure to entertain at a major awards event in Kensington, London this evening and it brings a succession of corporate entertainment events in London to a close for a few days.
What is always enjoyable and hugely rewarding about performing at corporate events is the response that a close-up magician gets from those that have not necessarily come to see the magic. Well, in fact, they have not at all come to see magic – they are here to network with associates, socialise with colleagues and in some cases, pick up awards.
The keynote speaker and presenter for the main awards this evening was none other than the hugely revered and respected journalist and new correspondent, Mr Jeremy Vine. It was a great pleasure to meet this gentleman and pleasant to entertain him with some close up magic, which he enjoyed thoroughly.
A completely lovely individual and incredibly delightful to get the opportunity for a quick chat too.
It has been a busy couple of weeks for corporate events for me, and it is always nice to be asked back every year to these regular events. Corporate entertainment is certainly a market that enjoys close up magic, and it is always a joy to be a part of these events!
