Luton Magician performs at the Luton Hoo – Bedfordshire
While working as a Luton Magician this Christmas, I was lucky to visit several prestigious venues. One of my favourites was the Luton Hoo. Like Ragdale Hall, it doubles as a hotel and spa. The rooms are especially grand and cater for a wide variety of functions.
It describes itself as a Country Club and contains a “Grade II listed Robert Adam courtyard, ” originally part of the Mansion House. Facilities include an indoor pool, Spa, and dining. “Adams” is the appropriate name for The Brasserie. There is also the award-winning Wernher Restaurant.
Luton Magician performs close up
On this occasion, I worked as a close-up magician for a Marriot Hotels Team Building Event. I wondered if I was working in Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire, as the Hoo is on the border. It is close to Luton Airport and has easy access from London.
The Gingerbread House
I was booked to perform table magic at the team-building event, followed by cabaret magic to finish the day off. Between my performances, delegates made and decorated Ginger Bread Houses. The MD asked me to appoint a winner from the four teams that took part. This turned out to be a little more challenging than I expected. It is not the sort of thing a Luton magician is usually asked to do, but it was a reasonable request.
The standard varied, and some groups’ creations were not unlike a collapsed shed. Like a house made of cards that someone had inadvertently sneezed on. Pictured above is the winner. On reflection, there may have been better candidates. However, I decided to send pictures to my five-year-old twins, who made the final decision.
A house had completely fallen apart, another was held up by scones. These were immediately disqualified. From the other two, I picked what I thought was the most creative. Here is the photograph of the winner.
The Luton Hoo is an excellent venue for events of all kinds and a beautiful setting for corporate magic. So, if you are looking for a Bedfordshire Magician, call us. Other venues include Woburn Abbey.
