Southampton Magician

Magician in Southampton

My second event of the Easter weekend – a trip down to Southampton to the New Place Hotel at Shirrell Heath near to Southampton for a wedding. The couple saw me at a company dinner last year some time and very kindly invited me to perform on their big day. I have been travelling down to Southampton/Hampshire for many years. In fact, one of my very first gigs was in Romsey (although I don’t think I have ever been there since). Also when driving past Chandlers Ford I am reminded of the magician Glyn Coy who has since retired from performance. I went to Egypt performing with Glyn over 10 years ago. So hello Glyn if you are Googling yourself.
Also many years ago I was booked for several short cruises sailing from Southampton. I say cruises, I think I was tricked as they were basically corporate charters of the ships lasting three nights. All entertainment and facilities were basically ceased and the television in my cabin was only showing footage from the conference that was on board. Each day I had two hours of performance time and that was it. So, essentially I woke up in the morning and had literally nothing to do until the evening. The agent that booked me for these gigs convinced me it was going to be fun. It wasn’t. Thankfully this was a long time ago and now whenever I am back in Southampton I am there more of a close up magician Southampton or a wedding magician Southampton and the gigs are usually much more enjoyable.
