Well done to Jessica, Nicole and Vicky of JNV events for hosting such a fantastic occasion at Sheffield Hilton Hotel last month! It was a massive privilege to be part of this very special Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed evening – and over one thousand pounds was raised for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity!
The team at JNV ensured that everyone had a magical night to remember at this stunning venue in the heart of Sheffield. The event was expertly hosted by the jovial Ian J France, and the guests were treated to the talents of vocalist Sylvester Gold after enjoying a delicious three course meal.
Photographer Alex Kentfield was on hand to capture the vibrancy and energy of a truly spellbinding evening, and I must thank him for kindly allowing me to display his exceptional work in this blog article. The professionalism of Creswell Sound and Vision also ensured that the proceedings ran smoothly and the attendees were treated to an impressive variety of exciting activities and games!
Well done to everyone for working together for such a tremendous cause! I hope to have the opportunity to perform magic for you all again in the future.
It was fantastic to mingle and perform magic for scholars from as far afield as India, Vietnam, China and Kenya. The atmosphere was fantastic and the students were keen to discuss their studies as well as voice their appreciation for both university and city.
Lord Mayor Murphy of Sheffield was there to present the Scholarships and I was immensely privileged to share a little magic and humour with her after the ceremony. The city of Sheffield takes great pride in its cultural diversity and world class educational facilities.
Overall it was a magical evening at Sheffield Hallam University. Staff and students alike ensured the awards ceremony was a great success, and it provides a fantastic platform for the scholars to excel in their fields of study. Thank you again to everyone at Sheffield Hallam for making me so welcome and good luck with your current projects.
