Up there with one of the best shows I have ever done I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my time performing for the guests and employees of Yorkshires Finest Charity Ball at Bagden Hall Hotel in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Initially booked for a 30 minute slot during the drinks reception of the event I immediately got to work with my performance. Dashing round the arriving guests performing my favourite close-up card tricks. Time flew by and before I knew it the half an hour was up. Luckily I had myself a ticket to the event! After what was a truly delicious 3 course meal and an impressive auction I promptly got back to performance.
I have never had such an impressive and enthusiastic audience before and that has what has encouraged me the most to write this short article. There is nothing better for a magician than a dedicated audience as it drives you to perform more. Everyone was very charitable and having a great time which gives you as a magician an added buzz and encourages you to make the guests night even better than it already is!
The whole night was dedicated to an extremely important and local charity to myself Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and to be a part of that and raise some individual donations on a personal level is something that I am extremely proud of.

I want to thank everyone at the event for showing me such amazing support throughout the whole night and particularly those guests that donated money to watch me perform. To raise money for a great charity whilst doing something I love is something I never thought I would be able to do, but with everyone’s support from that evening… It certainly made it happen!
