Tj hired as Corporate Magician at Luton Hoo – Bedfordshire
While working as a Christmas Magician this year I was lucky enough to visit a number of prestigious venues. One of my favourites was the Luton Hoo. Like Ragdale Hall, it doubles as a hotel and spa. The rooms are especially grand and cater for a wide variety of functions.
It describes itself as a Country Club and contains a "Grade II listed Robert Adam courtyard" which was originally part of the Mansion House. Facilities include an indoor pool, Spa, and dining. The Brasserie is appropriately named "Adam's". There is also the award-winning Wernher Restaurant.
On this occasion, I was working as a close-up magician for a Marriot Hotels Team Building Event. It is hard to know if I was working in Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire as the Hoo is on the border. It is close to Luton Airport and has easy access from London.
I was booked to perform table magic at a team building event followed by Cabaret Magic to finish the day off. Between my performances, delegates made and decorated Ginger Bread Houses. I was asked to appoint a winner from the four teams that took part.
One had completely fallen apart and another was held up by scones. These were immediately disqualified. From the other two, I picked what I thought was the most creative. Here is the photograph of the winner.
The Hoo is an excellent venue for events of all kinds and a beautiful setting for corporate magic.
