The hard work paid off and I am so proud of all our members of the UCL Union Magic Society. They worked extremely hard both on and off stage and the show improved with every performance, with the final two nights at The Garage Theatre selling-out! I must also say a huge thank you to the Stage Crew who worked tirelessly to make the show possible. It was an amazing opportunity for our members and we had fantastic support from friends and family. My new material went down well too and I look forward to more performances with the society in the future. Here are the highlights:
Here are a few comments from happy audience members which made me smile:
"MAGIC IS REAL!"
"Absolutely amazing! The tricks are insane! *I'm still shaking from the last one* Go Go Go!"
The three shows at The Garage Theatre were followed by a night at The Magic Circle. It was my first time organising the Ali Bongo Saturday Show and I was delighted to bring some new faces to the show, as well as some old favourites. Four lucky members of the UCLU Magic Society each made their debut performance at this prestigious venue, while we were joined by Matthew Garrett, Lee Hathaway, Young & Strange and Fay Presto, who held the evening together as compere. My doves behaved and the evening was a great success! It was the first full house I've seen there for a while and I was thrilled with the feedback from the audience.
A perfect end to an unforgettable week :)
I also had a great time performing at the British Magical Society's Annual Dinner in Birmingham last week. It was my first time there and hopefully not the last!
