Last week was a first for me: I became a wedding present! How it All Began It all began a few years a ago when I did a short stint on stage at Y Penwern beer festival. Y Pengwern is a community owned pub in Wales. Carol and Jim, who help run it, are friends going back to 1982. Carol asked me to do a short magic show on stage as an interlude to the music acts.  Well, I love

I had a fantastic time performing at the Harry Potter Convention at the The Printworks in Manchester last weekend. The official name for the convention was Driagacon. About 3500 people attended over the two days. There was a host of actors, activities, exhibits, stalls, music and, of course, MAGIC. I was in the Bierkeller. I performed my comedy magic and mind-reading show in between Q+A sessions with actors from the films. So, Afsha Nazad ((Padma Patil), Louis Cordice (Blaise Zabini),

  Most of my work is close-up at parties, receptions and other social gatherings. Recently, I have had the opportunity to do more stage work. I have already written about the lecture demonstrations I have given to various WI groups around Manchester. A couple of weeks ago I was delighted to have the opportunity to perform at the Chancers Cabaret in the Carlton Club in Whalley Range. It was only a 15-minute slot. My theme was the exploration of the

  DiagCon is coming! My children were part of the ‘Harry Potter Generation’. They waited for every new book eagerly. My wife and I followed the stories, too.

Afterwards we went went off to Asda’s to buy a  copy (well past the children’s

  Poster advertising Y Pengwern Magic with Frank in Llan Ffestinog Y Pengwern Magic Y Pengwern pub is in Llan Festiniog, Wales, with an excellent reputation. It is a small community set in beautiful rolling Welsh hills. Like many small villages, it faces challenges to maintain community services such as the local shop. A few years ago the pub came under pressure and it looked as if it might close. Everybody understood that the loss of the pub would be

Why do you need to book a magician with public liability insurance? Well, it’s not because something might go wrong when he saws a guest in half! No, it’s much simpler than that. Imagine your beautiful (and expensive), wedding dress being splashed with red wine as the magician makes an over enthusiastic sweep with his magic wand. Or your valuable ring being disappeared and then returned again…minus a diamond or covered in scratches. Sadly, this type of thing does happen
