It’s been a while since I posted a blog entry, so my apologies for that, but it’s been a busy time here at Magic HQ. It struck me that many people will think of a children or family magician as someone just for birthday parties. Far from it, as the past few weeks – and some varied bookings – will demonstrate.
First off, and for the third year running, I’ll be back at Millets Farm Centre for nine shows over the February school half-term week. Three shows a day at 10.30am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm on Tuesday 13, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 February.
As always, when I return to Millets, this is a brand new show full of brand new tricks – but sadly the same old jokes! Some shows are already sold out, so check here to book your seats at one of the remaining shows while there’s still time.
Then, on Sunday 6 May, I’ll performing at the Abingdon Air and Country Show at Dalton Barracks, near Abingdon. As well as performing a number of magic shows, I’ll be making balloon models while the flying displays are going on overhead.
This’ll be like coming home for me. My late father was a parachute training instructor at the base when it was known as RAF Abingdon, so I know the airfield pretty well and remember many RAF open days from my youth.
Staying with the RAF, I’ll be performing magic and making balloon models at RAF Brize Norton on Saturday 30 June to celebrate Armed Forces Day, and I’ll be providing similar attractions at a number of village and school fetes throughout the summer. I have a couple of bookings to entertain the children at weddings, too, so together with the ‘bread and butter’ birthday party bookings, I’ll be criss-crossing Oxfordshire this summer.
Finally, on Sunday 12 August, I’ll be performing at the Green Meadows Festival in the grounds of Elton Hall near Peterborough. I’m looking forward to this booking; as a keen music fan, the idea of being paid to be at a music festival just goes to remind me what a fabulous job I have.
So don’t imagine for one moment that Oxfordshire’s Magical Children’s Entertainer is only for birthday parties. I can, do, and will perform at any event where children get together for fun and laughter. To book me for your event, contact me now before the gaps in my diary are filled.
I hope to see you somewhere on my travels this spring and summer. Fingers crossed for some sunny days.
