Hi, When stars like Julia Roberts and Naomi Campbell attend a red-carpet event, they are usually seen wearing a stunning outfit created by a top designer especially for them. Let’s face it, they would probably look just as great dressed in something off the peg from Marks and Spencer. So why bother with a designer outfit? Well, stars know their fans expect them to look great. So, out of respect for them, they make the extra effort to look outstanding.

  Spoiling The Ship A wedding is a major financial cost these days. These figures for average costs in 2019 are eye-watering. 1.Venue hire – £5,406 2.Food – £3,887 3.Engagement ring – £2,419 4.Drink – £1,587 5.Wedding dress/outfit – £1,313 And then with the honeymoon coming in at £4,645… I can see why it is tempting to cut a few corners on extras such as the magician.     For a ha’poth of Tar Sure, obviously you’re not going to

I was petrified As the song goes. And for many, starting to use Zoom was, shall we say, a tad intimidating.   Then, we got used to it and suddenly we’re loving it.   But now, after all these lockdown months of Zooming family and friends…what’s left to talk about? “So, what have you been up to?” “Ironed my socks.” How long 40 minutes can seem when,12 months on,you are hunting for fresh conversation with the people we love and

No, we can’t have the usual gang over during lockdown for a sophisticated dinner party…   …or having a bite to eat as it is more commonly known. Luckily, you know that the arrival of Zoom means that we don’t need to condemn ourselves to a life of social isolation. So you think: I’ll just schedule a  Zoom meeting with some friends and we can all share a meal virtually. Then you think: I know. I’ll arrange for some online

  Well, for the time being dinner parties are a thing of the past. Unless, of course, you decide to hold a VIRTUAL dinner party. It’s quite simple. Say three couples join in. Each prepares one dish.  Somebody acts as courier, dropping off and picking up dishes. Once home, dinners can be warmed and the Zoom meeting started up. Before, during and after the meal there are plenty of opportunities for games, quizzes etc.  And, if you fancy a bit

    Special birthdays and anniversaries are too important to go unmarked, even in these unusual times.

An old favourite and a ‘Johnny come lately’.   Trusty Favourite: The Magic Show. Basically, I take over one end of a room or

    The Midas Experience  “The golden touch is no blessing,” cried Midas.    The Midas Experience is my mind-reading show. I combine astonishing mentalism with thought provoking questions about possessing extraordinary powers. The Midas Experience takes a fresh approach to mind-reading entertainment. How? By grippping the emotions AND the intellect. The audience witness incredible feats of mind manipulation, prediction, synchronicity and mind-reading. Some volunteers will even explore their own psychic abilities. But The Midas Experience is different to the

    Types of Magical Entertainment An extract from my free guide to booking a magician. Link at the foot of the post.   When you start looking at magician’s websites you will notice most choices of types of magic. Here are the most common terms and what they mean. Close-up Magic: This happens very close to the audience, often in their hands. Close-up magic is also known as Mix and Mingle. The magician joins your guests. He moves around

My party is too small for a Magician “My party is too small to make it worth booking a magician.” This is something you may be thinking if you are arranging a small  party for less than 20 people. Perhaps it is a special birthday but you don’t want to book a hall and invite everybody you know. Not everyone enjoys the fuss and attention of a large party.
