Gwrych Castle Christmas Fair 2019

Gwrych Castle in snow

In the words of the immortal Slade… “It’s Christmas!” Well, it’s definitely on the way. The nights are drawing in; shopping lists are growing with gifts and food galore; and the time has come to drag the tree down from the attic, and the annual tradition of decorating it whilst watching your favourite Christmas film. (Which we all know is Die Hard!) At least, that’s how it goes down in the Gatling household.

But also for us it is a time to share a lot of magic, Jay will be busy performing at many a seasonal party across December, bringing magic and Christmas cheer to all.

This all kicks off on November 30th and December 1st as we once again return to the magical and mysterious Gwrych Castle as part of the Gwrych Castle Christmas Fair 2019.

This also marks the start of Gwrych’s Christmas season, which runs every weekend until Christmas Eve, with the opening of their Santa’s Grotto! The big man himself will be arriving on the Saturday to begin the festivities and open the grotto ready to greet all the good boys and girls, with the addition of a plethora of stalls bulging with lots of goodies to help get the perfect gift for that certain someone.

And of course the Wizard of Conwy will be in attendance to entertain all as well: Jay will be there both days meeting and greeting one and all, sharing some magic and perhaps performing a show or two, so be sure to keep an eye out for the castle’s resident Wizard and partake in some Christmas magic!

We look forward to meeting you all there, and sharing in the joy of this wonderful holiday season.

Now if you’ll excuse us, it’s not truly christmas until Bruce Willis defeats Alan Rickman… again.

Our final wedding event for this year is The Chester Wedding Fair 2019

The event on the 3rd of November is a a new one for our calendar. We’re looking to bring our unique style of magic to the brides and grooms of the Cheshire and North West areas. So we’re heading to Chester Racecourse for the Bliss Wedding Shows Wedding Fair.

And as always coming down on the 3rd of November will allow you the chance to speak face to face with a variety of suppliers, a fine selection of the best in their field.

It’s a great chance to chat with Jay to find out how he can bring high quality, memorable entertainment to your big day, plus you can share in some magic and see a trick or two to boot.

Rhyl Town Hall Wedding Fayre Autumn 2019 – postponed

24/08/2019: Please note that this event has now been postponed. We’ll post details of the new date as soon as we have them.

Weddings are big events – events that require a lot of planning and putting together; most people have never attempted to organise such a thing and bring to life such a major undertaking. It’s a special day you want to remember for years to come, a day that filled with love and laughter.

But where do you start with such a thing? Well if you’ve read the title of this blog then you know the answer is a wedding fayre; like the Rhyl Town Hall wedding fayre this autumn 2019. These events are designed to help you get an idea of the sorts of things you might want to think about for the big day, and are generally held in beautiful venues where you can get married and/or have the wedding breakfast and evening reception.

Jay Gatling performs close up magic for a bride and groom.

Wedding fayres are also full of fantastic local suppliers who can help you with all your questions, and even inspire you with ideas you may not have thought about. We attend multiple wedding fayres as a wedding supplier twice a year. The two seasons are Spring and Autumn fayres. It’s great to be able to speak face to face with all those budding brides and grooms and help shape their perfect day.

Having worked dozens upon dozens of weddings over the years we’ve seen the beautiful, the unusual, and the astounding. And because of this experience we have a good deal of knowledge concerning our place in the proceedings, and how a little close-up magic added to the day can be an invaluable tool. Keeping guests entertained as you have your pictures taken, or getting whole tables laughing and engaging with each other during the wedding breakfast – these are just some of the advantages of having a walk about close-up magician as part of the day.

Jay from Gatling Magic entertains guests at a wedding.

The autumn wedding fayre season will be kicking off very soon and the first fayre we will be attending is at the fantastic Rhyl Town Hall. This will be on September 1st and will be attended by a fabulous variety of wedding suppliers, all ready and willing to help you with you big day.

It would be great to speak with you about how we can bring high quality, memorable magic to the day also. So come on by and have a chat and see how we can help.

What you need to know about Rhyl Town Hall Wedding Fayre Autumn 2019

The Rhyl Town Hall Wedding fayre takes place on Sunday the 1st of September 2019, and runs from 12pm to 4pm. New date to be confirmed.
