Comedy Close up and Cabaret at the Cranthorne Hall Hotel Yorkshire
I work as a corporate magician in Yorkshire several times a year on this occasion I drove up to a hotel just above Harrogate.
The Cranthorne Hall Hotel was originally built in 1906 near the village of Yarm. The estate was owned by the Dugdale family until the mid 1970s. In its time it has played host to royalty and politicians. It is now been turned into a hotel with thirty seven bedrooms, two Rosette restaurant and fifteen acres of private grounds.
Indeed four million pounds has recently gone into refurbishing and restoring the East Wing.
It is used for conferences, weddings and private parties throughout the year. On this occasion it was booked by ABB Group, a vast technology company with offices in the north. Laughlines were providing the entertainment for the staggering thirteenth year in a row.
Laughlines are famous for providing Comedy Dinner Show’s up and down the country. They are also planning a game show format which they will tour around the country later in the year. After twelve years of different shows ABB decided to go for something different this year which is where I came in.
I was asked to perform close up magic during the reception and a cabaret performance between main course and dessert. This can be an excellent format. The guest get to know you during the informal part of the evening and are then more responsive when it comes to the cabaret later.
The evening was very well organised with each part of the itinerary running almost to the minute. Special thanks to Andy and Sue who were such great characters on stage.
I often work as a Yorkshire Magician with appearances at the York Museum, Wentbridge House and Humberside Fire and Rescue Award Ceremony. I have also lectured for the Hull Magicians.
