Back To The Midlands For My Final Lecture Of The Year

L&WMS

And one more magical lecture before the end of the year.  Off to Leamington Spa today to meet members of the Leamington and Warwick Magic Society and introduce them to my great cast of spooky characters including William Block, Col Arthur Scofield and Adrian Griffith.

Great Evening At Leicester Guildhall

Mayors Parlour

Enjoyed an amazing evening at Leicester Guildhall on Friday night with a wonderfully engaged audience who clearly had a great time.  We moved the venue from the freezing cold Great Hall to the more comfortable Mayor’s Parlour next door (see picture above) which made for a much more intimate show which seemed to enhance the atmosphere.  Soon be booking a date to go there again in 2016 – my seventh year performing there.

More Ghost Stories

More Ghost

Just received the most amazing addition to my arsenal of magical effects – a facsimile first edition of “More Ghost Stories” by the master of the genre, M R James.  Now focussing on reading and re-reading the book so that I become so familiar with it that I can pluck a spectator’s thoughts on reading any one of the pages.  Hours of work involved but will be well worth the effort when I begin using the book alongside a collection of spine-chilling ghost stories in the new year.

Nick’s Got Talent…

…but will he make it onto TV?  Just been approached by researchers working on Britain’s got talent who want to know if I would be interested in taking part in the new series?  Could I soon be joining the ranks of Dynamo, Jamie Raven and Piff The Magic Dragon as a TV megastar?  Highly unlikely but it might generate some interesting PR.  So – getting myself in gear for filming with them at the end of the month.
