As I live in Marlow, its always a pleasure to promote and perform in Marlow. I was asked to do magic at Geoff Wood’s 60th birthday bash at Court Garden House . The Higginson room is a  beautiful room overlooking Higginson park and the Thames. As you can see, Sir Steve Redgrave is a famous Marlovian and is a permanent fixture in Higginson Park.

Marlow Rocks!

I performed magic at the tables as well as a cabaret. Also performing that night was Geoff Jolliffe and his band (see picture). Geoff owns a prestigious garment shop in marlow called  ’ Jolliffes‘.

Camden Show Etcetera

Etcetera Theatre in Camden

Etcetera Theatre in Camden

Some of you may not know that for several years now, Camden in London hosts the Camden Fringe in August similar to Edinburgh. Last year I performed my show at the Etcetera Theatre which is one of the 5 theatres that are used during the Fringe.  The theatre is above a pub called the Oxford Arms.

The Show was called ‘Reality Vaccine’ which consisted entirely of mentalism, and I was aided by the lovely Nikki Cambell, who was my creative director and technical Guru. She is also the creative director for the No Handbags Theatre Company based at the Windsor Firestation Art Centre.

Three victims..oops..I meant volunteers!

I use a lot of audience participation in my show, and I don’t make them embarrased or make them do anything that is difficult. It should be fun for them.. some even go may go to sleep.. or is that a trance…

Just close your eyes and reellaaaaxxxx....

Although the theatre is small, it really is intimate and cosy. Next year the Camden Fringe runs from the 2nd to the 29th of August.
