Well I certainly had a very exciting corporate event last week, one in which I went to a very prestigious venue up in London. I was booked to perform some close up magic at Tower Bridge. I must admit that I didn’t know that Tower Bridge was a venue you could hire as well as a bridge you could walk over (I feel a bit silly not realising that!) But what a beautiful structure, and a lovely building it is. As I rose up in the lift to the area where the events take place I felt like I was going on a rocket launch!
Walking along the structure which was illuminated in blue lights, and windows you could look out of and see the city sky line, I was speechless; and then when I looked down I noticed that there was a glass floor. You could look down and see the road below you and the cars travelling over it and under you. Amazing and breath taking.
I set myself up, spoke to the events organiser and the bookers and went through the order of the evening. They had a number of very important clients coming and they wanted me a perform my strolling close up magic set to give the evening an extra dimension. This is something that I love to do, and have a great deal of experience of. It was a wonderful evening and I received some great reactions and some lovely comments.
At the end of the evening it was so gratifying when I was talking to the lady who had booked me for one of their important clients to come over to her and say that I was an amazing magician. After I had finished I was lucky enough to talk to Gavin who works for Tower Bridge a very nice gentleman who was extremely knowledgeable and such a friendly chap. It was a pleasure to talk to him and hear about the history of Tower Bridge and it’s new life as corporate and wedding venue.
Once I had finished and had tidied away and was on my way home, some of the staff at the venue asked if they could see some magic. And of course I obliged, I love performing magic and how could I not perform for people who really wanted to see something. Their reactions were wonderful, and the phrase “But that’s impossible” was used rather a lot. It was a pleasure to perform for everyone at Tower Bridge.
A few days later I received an email from the company that had booked me, and it said: “Hi Stuart, Just a quick message to say thank you so much for last Thursday, your up close card tricks really added an extra dimension to our evening and lots of our clients came up to tell me how good you were!! The evening couldn’t have gone better.” What a lovely message to receive.
If you would like to have my amazing close up magic at your event, corporate, wedding, or private party, so that your guests have a wonderful time and talk about it for days, weeks, months or years to come, please get in touch.
