My Magic Show seemed to go down well with the Nepalese Community in Andover on Saturday when I entertained at their New Year party with my assistant Mirrah. Here is a photograph of some of the ladies in the audience with Mirrah, dressed in black, centre right.
The magic show comprised a mixture of magical effects for both children and adults including three illusions. Mirrah acted as my assistant for two of the illusions as well as performing an effect herself and a male “volunteer” from the audience helped with the third.
The Nepalese were a great audience and I hope to work for them again sometime. I think a lot of the men present were former Gurkhas and I couldn’t help wondering what some of them had done in their lives. Having visited the Gurkha Museum in Winchester last month I realise why they are so highly respected by the British armed forces and feared by their enemies. Prince Harry was reported last month to have said that if you are in a war zone the safest place to be is next to a Gurkha.
