We’ve just finished two weekends of street magic, and they couldn’t have been more different.
Firstly, we took part in the annual Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza. It’s a three day event that fills the streets with rides and attractions, and brings the town centre to a standstill.
Early in the morning, the streets were almost deserted, but things soon got busier as all the visitors arrived.
We spent most of the time walking around the Extravaganza, performing close up magic for people in the street, and posing for them to take photographs.
Each day, we did one show on the promenade stage – our Mystic Emporium show. It was the first outing for the Mystic Emporium on a stage, with a performance specially designed for outdoor work.
Then we joined in the daily parade around the town, with Kevin the bird and Trix the dog.
It was a little chilly first thing on Saturday morning, and it rained for a short while, but the rest of the weekend was lovely and hot with some glorious sunshine.
We had a great time, but wearing heavy Victorian costumes in bright sun got rather warm!
A huge thank you to the Official Photographer of the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza, Robert Mann, for letting us use his wonderful images. You can see the whole set of photographs by clicking here.
The weekend after the Extravaganza we were at another outdoor event, but the weather was a complete contrast. Find out all about it in Part Two, coming soon!
