Magic Shows in 2016

Magic Shows in 2016 are getting off to a good start with plenty of bookings coming in for January. Magic over Christmas and the new year has been good with some good quality bookings. Apart from my work as a magician I am also looking forward to attending the Blackpool Magicians Club Convention in February which attracts some 3,000 magicians from all over the world. Whilst it’s not until September, I am also looking forward to the annual convention of the British Ring of the International Brotherhood of Magicians which this year will be held in the delightful town of Buxton. The photograph shows me meeting the legendary Sooty the last time I was in Buxton.

To all my clients and fellow magicians I wish a happy and prosperous 2016.

    Thank you for your magic show at my son’s 5th birthday party yesterday. The children loved the show particularly the rabbit and duck tricks! We all had lots of fun – parents and children alike!

    Many thanks

    Thanks to Ian for a great magic show for my Daughter’s 6th Birthday. The children (and adults) all enjoyed the show enormously. It kept everyone entertained and happy, which was exactly what we were hoping for!

    Magic was dominating Blackpool last weekend with the annual Blackpool Festival of Magic which was a great success. Some 3,600 magicians attended from all over the world. I enjoyed the lectures, demonstrations and evening shows as well as meeting up with old friends and learning a few new tricks. It was also good to have my son Gavin with me.

    Last night I was entertaining children at an army camp in Upavon for the second time having been there for their Christmas party in 2014. On the way home I called at The Stonehenge Inn for a bite to eat. I shall be entertaining there on Easter Monday and also at their sister pub, The Beades Lea in North Baddesley on Easter Sunday.

    Magic was definitely in the air on Valentine’s Night, a busy evening for magicians. I was performing at Jehangir’s Indian restaurant in Southampton. They were very busy with two sittings and I was performing almost non stop from 6.00 until 10.00. I enjoyed my curry afterwards. The food there is excellent.

    Tomorrow I’m off to Blackpool for the largest magicians’ convention in the world. Usually over 3,000 magicians attend for the weekend so I’ll be meeting up with old friends plus my son Gavin and enjoying the magic.

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to Ian for running a fabulous 2 hour session for our daughter’s birthday. Would recommend to others as Ian is well organised and communicates well throughout the booking process. It was ideal for us as Ian ultimately looked after the kids throughout the session with games and a magic show.

    Magic in Salisbury, Alresford and Totton has kept me busy over the weekend. First on Saturday was a two hour party near Salisbury, starting with plate spinning, balloon modelling and games and concluding with my 45 minute magic show. Then it was off to Alresford for a family party where I performed a 45 minute show suitable for all ages from children aged 3, their parents,grandparents and friends.

    Sunday was less hectic with just a 45 minute show in Totton for a 6 year old.

    All three shows went well from my perspective. Common to all, unusually, was the performance of the chair suspension illusion. This went down very well, particularly at the family party where one of the ladies kindly acted as the magician’s assistant. And very good she was too!

    I remember many years ago before I took up magic, assisting David Berglas with the chair suspension at The Dome Theatre in Brighton and was very impressed. (I didn’t get levitated incidentally.) I never thought at the time that I would one day be performing the illusion myself.
