Paypal 10th Anniversary Party
Last Tuesday I was performing as a magician at Lloyds of London in Lime Street, for Paypal’s 10th anniversary celebration. Yes Paypal has been going for a decade. The Lloyds building is magnificent with high security and impressive facilities. We were working in The Old Library, a basement facility, which looks slightly out of context, walls of dark wood in this otherwise steel construction. This gave the feeling that the massive modern framework had been built around this single old room.
The picture above shows the splendour of the Old Library with its wooden panelling and old paintings.
The second picture shows the steel construction which holds up the building. The contrast is quite startling.
Many different companies were present, for example Fujitsu, as you can see from the photograph. It can be very hard work when a magician entertains during a networking event. There are occasions when I have turned an offer down for this reason. However I found guests to be very responsive to close up magic and the caricaturist and I had a great time.
I spend a lot of my time working as a London Magician. Indeed this is the second time I have worked at this wonderful venue in the heart of the capital. Last year I was employed by the same events company to perform at their Christmas party in the same room.
