Barnet Magician Tj Shoesmith performs at a grand stately home in Herts
Performing as a Barnet Magician at the most wonderful venue last week was a dream come true.
For many years I was a member of the Watford Association of Magicians, indeed for a while, I was their secretary. So, it was a great pleasure to perform for one of the members at the Dyrham Park Country Club.
Working alongside another very talented magician Paul Megram, we performed close-up magic for guests while they mingled and ate canopies.
“Thank you both for helping to make last night such a great success. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performances.”
The estate spans some 200 acres and is the home of one of the best golf clubs in Hertfordshire. The Palladian Mansion is one of the oldest and finest in the country. The name of the club has taken many forms but was finally set in 1880 and became County Council owned in 1938, the club itself was founded in the 1960’s.
At one end of the building, a fabulous gateway can be seen which may have been designed for the coronation of King Charles II and can be seen clearly from the 15th tee.
Family celebrations are always fun, and this was no exception. The age range was very broad, and the event was large. It was easy for two magicians to move around and entertain the guests without treading on each other’s feet.
We got some great reactions! As the picture shows, it is possible to get great reactions with magic and to watch people enjoy it is a wonderful way to make a living. There are a couple of new tricks which I have been working on, and one was being performed for the lady here.
