We had a brilliant time at the 67th Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod during the second week in June. We were there with HTC Entertainment, doing walkaround and stage performances for all five days of the Eisteddfod.
The weather was extremely hot and sunny all week, and there was an amazing atmosphere on the Eisteddfod field.
But that’s enough talk, time for the photographs!
As you can see, Jay performed close up magic for lots of people, mainly groups of school children. The adults were interested too, and it was very nice to be recognised by some people who had seen us in Seaside Special.
In fact, the only stage we didn’t perform on was the main Eisteddfod stage…
We took our floating table with us and, as always, it got great reactions from the crowd. Jay also performed a classic magic routine, the linking rings, which was very well received.
Of course, we weren’t the only ones from HTC Entertainment at the Eisteddfodd, and the others were very busy performing too:
Roslyn Walker attempted some dangerous blindfold knife juggling over a volunteer. He also completed a straightjacket escape in less than three minutes.
Lia showed off her agility with her hula hoop routines.
Kaleigh showed us why she’s the world unicycle champion.
Harley the Clown did some crazy balancing stunts, as well as juggling knives and making balloon animals.
In the evenings, we put on a fire show. Kaleigh unicycled as Roslyn and Harley juggled lit torches around her, and Lia used a flaming hula hoop. The most spectacular part of the fire shows was Harley breathing fire.
The weather was amazingly good, in fact it was perhaps a little too hot at times! We were especially grateful to the outside stages team who looked after us so well for the five days.
The Eisteddfod was a brilliant week, and we all had such a great time. We really hope we’ll be back again next year!
