Wow! what a busy December and January! December is always a magical month with it being Christmas, and it’s always the busiest time of year for magicians and other entertainers with the various corporate Christmas parties for staff and clients, and of course all the private Christmas parties. If I did the miles I did on the road via plane, I think I would of racked up enough air-miles to become a V.I.P Customer, and would of got one of those platinum cards I saw in the excellent film “Up in the Air”!
In January there is also quite a few “late Christmas parties” Which are always fun – although it still seems strange to go to an Xmas party in January!
Like most years I had many last minute Christmas party enquires, and unfortunately for many I was already booked up. Like I mentioned before, as the festive period is so busy – to guarantee a good magician for your event you ideally need to book at least two months in advance. I’ve already got quite a few dates booked in for Christmas 2010 that where booked in 2009! Ideally once you have a venue booked and a rough idea of the approximate number of guests then it is best to look around for entertainment – Close up magicians and table magicians are such a popular choice for Xmas that you really don’t want to find all the good magicians are booked up, and you are left with the rabble!
This Christmas many companies and private bookers booked my Close Up Magic/ Table magic in conjunction with my Mind Reading Show. The Mind-Reading show is always a fantastic way to round off the evening after the meal, with myself performing table magic before and around the meal. I also offer fantastic rates on booking the two options together.
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year – and if you saw one of my live performances I hope you thoroughly enjoyed yourself!
