Britain’s Got Talent

Posted on 2nd Jun 2015 12:05:13

Hi all

I see a magician came second in BGT. Not that I actually watched it! Never liked that programme...
I know though that it was the same magician that I wrote about a few months ago, where people moaned as they could "see" how it was done. And guess what, the same reactions in newspapers, people saying he is a "fake" as they can see how it is done. Do people not have anything better to do! If you see magic live in the flesh any thoughts like this are gone. Close up magic I feel is not meant for television, thus he was brave to perform this on a national TV talent show, kudos to Jamie Raven. I just hope we get another upsurge in people wanting to book us!! Cross fingers!

Elsewhere in life tomorrow (02/06/2015) I take my Open University final exam on modern history. I have spent so much time revising, slacking of the magic practice for a bit! Stressful! Though I have had a couple of interesting gigs. I got to perform a private party in York's Mansion house where the Lord Mayor lives. Beautiful venue and crowd. I also performed at an "alternative" wedding. They had people camping on a golf course! Weird!

Until next time bye

Posted on 18th May 2015 11:59:32

Was interesting last night to watch the new BBC1 drama, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, which featured the York Society of Magicians! Well not actually the society I am secretary of, but a 19th century one featuring “real” magicians! Hopefully it may garner some attraction to us as a society, especially as we are celebrating out 70th anniversary. We are always looking out for new members, whatever the skill level! We can be found at York Society of Magicians

And if you want to see a magician in York. Well here I am!! Have some exciting gigs this week, with one in a historic building in York city centre. Hope to get some nice photos!

Magic and Cycling - Fossgate Festival

Posted on 4th May 2015 10:12:01

Saturday was the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire race ending in York, and Fossgate decided to have a festival as the street was blocked off to traffic.

I performed close-up magic for several hours, in what was a chilly day! Where was the sun when you needed it? I had some amazing reactions and even got blogged about! You can read what happened at the blog Caitlin and Her Dress
