Close up and Cabaret at a family reunion in Harrogate

“This is just a brief note to thank you for your performance last night at our private party in Harrogate. You were phenomenal…. beyond brilliant. You completed a lovely evening and it felt more like you were one of the family rather than a hired hand”

Family reunions always provide an interesting mix of people. On this occasion, the family was spread far and wide. This included Europe and beyond. I had worked in Harrogate before, most notably at the Kimberly Hotel on New Years Eve 2010.

I was performing at the Restaurant Bar and Grill. It is situated near the centre of town close to shops and entertainment. Thankfully parking was easy. It has a large downstairs area which is ideal for casual dinners. On the first floor is a reasonably sized function room which is easily able to fit the 30 or so guests for this event.

The staff were very accommodating and the food looked excellent.

Family events such as weddings have a very different feel to the corporate events which I spend a lot of my time doing. The age range is greater. Often children will be present. It is not unusual for members of a company to arrive at their own event to find they really don’t know anyone. If they do it tends to be the members of their quite often small team.

This is not so when members of a family get together.

This was a small affair. No more than four tables. I had been asked to perform close up magic around the tables during the meal and a short cabaret after coffee. As I met different generations of family and friends it became a wonderfully friendly atmosphere.

The Cabaret was particularly fun and I was delighted when I received the email from one of the guests at the top of this article.
