Magical History Tour Talk

Every now and then I get asked if I can give a talk on magic, and so I created my “Magical History Tour”. It is all about how I started in magic, my membership of The Magic Circle (the most prestigious magic club in the world) and the history of three iconic legends in magic’s past, all interspersed with performances of magic to illustrate the talk.

Coffee Roundabout

Last Thursday I gave one of these talks to a wonderful group of women who have been going to the same coffee morning for the past 50 years, since it was formed as a young mothers coffee morning. The lady who runs it, Joan, is a very sprightly 93 year old, and she very kindly left me a voice testimonial after the event which you can listen to here by clicking the play button.

Transcript of audio:
From the moment that Gordon took his shoe off, because it was uncomfortable, and produced a can of liquor from it (Gordon: it was actually coke !!!), he had us laughing, and we seemed to be laughing throughout the morning and forgetting all about the miserable rainy weather outside. His magic was wonderful, and he really is, I’m sure, a born entertain for all ages. We thought it was a lovely show. Goodbye.

Testimonial

I have 3 children aged between 10 and 5, I have held many parties and this was the most enjoyed, talked about by the children for days after. I also thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my friends. Thank you Gordon.
