Magners’ Cider Secret Garden

magners' cider secret garden


The Magners’ Cider Secret Orchard events are where the company has booked major bands to entertain fans of Magners’ cider.

The secret garden event is an offshoot takes the idea that when we think about cider we think of it a summer drink to be enjoyed in our gardens.

Of course, many don’t have a garden. So, Magners’ cider hired some beautiful gardens for an afternoon with entertainment and drinks provided. Then they invited locals to apply for tickets.

Manchester Magners’ Cider Secret Garden

I was delighted to entertain at the Manchester event on Saturday 6th August.

I performed close up magic to guests at a beautiful garden in Prestwich. They included Ellie Middleton who is a social influencer who writes about food.

It was my first time meeting a social influencer. I had an impression they would be somebody a bit egocentric to say the least. I think I got that impression from TV portrayals of influencers.

In fact Ellie was very down to Earth and easy to get along with. We enjoyed some great magic and we all chatted for ages about our lives, plans, careers and experiences. It was a delightful afternoon.

Lee McClean 

It was a pleasure to meet to  meet Lee McClean, an outstanding news photographer booked by Magners’ Cider especially for the event. Lee has covered news from around the world and his photos have featured on the front pages of our national newspapers.

His photos of the afternoon will be published later and I will add links in a future post.

In the meantime, you can catch a glimpse of me in Ellie’s video reel HERE. I am wearing my boating jacket and boater to add to the traditional English garden inthe summer feeling of the event.

I’d love to entertain your guests at your summer event. Just click HERE to watch what delighted clients have said about my magic.
