I performed magic for the mayor
On the 30th of March I attended the Business Awards 2017 that was held by The Sentinel a local regional newspaper that covers across Staffordshire and Cheshire.
I attended the awards to represent Overclockers UK, my company were nominated into the finals for the ‘Business of the Year’ category and were the runner-up out of hundreds of thousands of businesses across the two regions!
It was great to see so many great local companies in the one room that managed to get through to the finals of 10 different categories.
As this was an event to celebrate, I performed magic to some the guests, including the Lord Mayor for Stoke-on-Trent, Anthony Munday!
The reactions from the Lord Mayor and his wife Paula was just speechless, they both paused and did not say a lot due to the amazement and then shook my hand and thanked me for the performance.
I really enjoyed the awards night, and I hope that the guests who I performed magic to as a complete surprise thoroughly enjoyed it too! Also, a special thanks to Leanne Bagnall for taking these photos from the night, Leanne was excellent at capturing the magic!
Roll on next year, I am looking forward to it, even though this one has only just finished!
