Lucky for me then that doing what I love just happens to be my job and therefore having fun makes up a very large percentage of it. I have been a very busy bee of late and therefore much fun has ensued. So there it is, I am a very busy and fun-loving magical bee at the moment. (Happy Dance, or BZZZZZZZ)
There would be far too much (BZZZING) to report without sounding too me, me, me (arguably sometimes the point of a blog but SHHHHHHH!) so I will summarise some of the highlights before glancing towards what other fun and festivities are coming up in the not-too distant future. My recent adventures have included.....
performing on stage once more
riddles in the dark comes to light
Although Brighton has plenty to offer for every taste imaginable from art and music, to food and dancing, (lot's and lot's of dancing!) there seemed to be a distinct lack of magic as live entertainment, on a regular basis. So after teaming up with mid-reading maestro David Stewart, we decided to change all that and bring magic back to the masses by organising regular shows.
But these are so much more than your standard 'magic shows', we vowed to create themes and make our events as interactive as possible so people can get dressed up, escape the burdens of the working week, grab their friends and come and have a bit of fun. We created two main events:
The sorcerer's speakeasy
This has proved to be a huge success so far and we are just about to launch the date for our 4th show, so keep your eyes peeled then fix up, look sharp and prepare to welcome in the weekend in style.

The karnival of magick
Our big circus spectacular, this show featured us performing close up magic and mind reading as well as circus acts on stage, art and craft stalls, face- painting and challenges. The launch party was a massive success with a great turnout (especially for a Tuesday night!) and awesome feedback so we are still buzzing and can't wait for the next one- details to be announced as soon ass we have a confirmed date.
Until then you can keep updated here and check out the photos from the first one below. Thanks to the always amazing Toms Udris Photography for taking them. Give him some Facebook loving here.
