I was profoundly flattered when Su Roys asked me to perform magic at a very special birthday party at the West Retford Hotel, Nottinghamshire, in December 2017. I first met Su at the offices of Siren FM, Lincoln, two years ago and I was delighted that my magic had left a lasting impression. Su and her twin sister Helen celebrated a very important birthday this year, and I was very privileged to be part of the proceedings.
The sisters had selected a wonderful venue for their celebrations. Situated in close proximity to the major A1 artery, the West Retford Hotel is perfect for parties, weddings and corporate functions. Indeed, Alice and the exceptional events team at the hotel ensured that Helen and Su’s birthday bash went down a storm!
I am a very fortunate man to be invited to such momentous occasions. It truly was a tremendous experience to perform close-up magic and table-side illusions for Su and Helen’s nearest and dearest. In this fast-paced internet age we seldom have the opportunity to gather friends and family together to celebrate – so this was definitely a moment to savour. The sisters are blessed with a lovely group of relatives, and the exceptional Alistair Crust (Su and Helen’s brother) and his fiancée Holly Hardman were on hand to capture everything on camera!
After a fantastic meal, everyone present was treated to the prodigious talents of vocalist Dan Hadfield. This certainly was a birthday party with a difference and all the guests – from the youngest to the eldest – had an amazing time!
Happy birthday Helen and Su – and hopefully I will have the opportunity to entertain you again soon. Thank you for calling upon my services, and I wish you both all the very best for the future.
