Close up Magic at the Hampshire Rose Bowl
The Rose Bowl is the home of Hampshire Cricket Club! I really had no idea when I drove to Southampton that this was the case. Expecting a restaurant or events centre I was most surprised to be directed into a large car park and then a hospitality suite. I was employed to perform close up magic for 100 or so people at an NHS Trust annual event.
Arriving early I was able to walk through the grounds. Empty Stadiums have their own unique quality and the child inside each one of us can’t help imagining what it would be like to play cricket in front of a packed crowd. Or is that just the ego inside every performer?
It was a great night, having worked as a paramedic in London for a number of years I always enjoy the NHS functions and parties. They enjoyed the magic and as I walked out back through the stadium it had a very different feel in the dark.
