I found myself in Rutland East Midlands this week performing magic to teenagers. This was a little different from the corporate and wedding events that make up professional magicians engagements.
On Saturday night I found myself at a school in Rutland East Midlands to perform party magic for an early Valentine’s Day party at Oakham School. On the Sunday I entertained at an eleven year olds birthday party.
These two events had one thing in common they both could be described as boisterous. This was not a problem as all were attentive and enthusiastic and on both occasions. They all enjoyed magic and the time flew by.
The school party moved from close up magic to cabaret magic quiet quickly. The rather grainy photograph shows me standing on a chair in the school canteen performing the shrinking head illusion, one of the funniest pieces of magic around.
