Tj performs Wedding Magic at Chatsworth House
Tj Shoesmith was hired as a Wedding Magician to perform at this wonderful venue in the autumn of 2015. The Cavendish Rooms, at Chatsworth House Derbyshire, were set aside for this wonderful event.
Home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, this is truly a family house and enterprise. It contains an amazing collection of art spanning centuries. There are many great rooms and it hosts many events.
I was asked to perform as a wedding magician at this wonderful venue in the autumn of 2015. The Cavendish Rooms were set aside for this wonderful event.
When I arrived the public were still milling around the café’s and displays in the main courtyard. However, when I left several hours later the hustle and bustle had gone and the wedding guests had the place to themselves.
The two pictures here show the courtyard, in the early evening. Some members of the public are still around and the wedding ceremony was still going on. Later this part was deserted.
I have visited Derbyshire many times but had never performed at such a salubrious venue. The grounds are quite magnificent and ideal for these sort of family events.
The staff were also accommodating and the room was spacious so getting between tables was easier than normal.
Many years ago I worked at the Chesterfield Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield. So it was wonderful to return as a Derbyshire Magician to work in the area.
On this occasions, there were a couple of magicians in the party, who knew a fair few things about the art of magic. This is always fun. The children were also great, very responsive and enthusiastic.
