Mold Carnival 2019

Mold Carnival logo

You’ve gotta love the atmosphere at Mold Carnival 2019. Bright costumes parading through the town, people dancing through the street to all sorts of music floating on the air, with everything bringing people together in a feeling of happiness and joy.

We’ve attended Mold Carnival two years running and it is an event that always invokes a joyful emotion. As part of the parade at the start of the event, it’s wonderful to see so many people lining the streets to support it and the town. As you pass the crowds you see so many smiles and excited folk; ready for the day’s festivities.

In past years the carnival has taken over a large chunk of Mold, filling the high street with colourful and exciting fun fair rides and games, their main stage providing a great variety of local and celebrity entertainment. Whilst even more happens down on Kendricks Field, with the mascot race, lots of local and charity stalls and even more entertainment to keep you engaged and enjoying your day out in the sun.

This year’s event

In just a couple of weeks time they’re going to be doing it all again, as Mold Carnival 2019 returns on Sunday July 7th. The location has changed ever so slightly, now being entirely on Kendricks Field and The Rec, but the atmosphere will still be as awesome as ever, with plenty to see, do and engage with.

Of course Jay will be there too; with three shows over the course of the day, and mix and mingle close-up magic between times. This year he also plans to add a little juggling to his part in the parade, so keep an eye out for the juggling wizard. Now there’s a sentence you never thought you’d read today!

Jay’s shows will be at 11.45am and 2.30pm on the community stage on The Rec and at 1pm on the main stage on Kendricks Field itself.

Mold Carnival is always a pleasure to be a part of and entertain at, and we’re glad to have been invited back for another year of carnival fun. We hope to see you there. Be sure to come by, say hi, and share in some carnival magic at Mold Carnival 2019!

Harry Potter Evening in Llandudno: wizard magic, potion making & quiz

Join us on Wednesday the 26th  of June, for a Harry Potter evening in Llandudno.

Llandudno is a very popular tourist destination, with plenty of shops and attractions to keep everyone occupied during their visit. But hidden away in plain sight on Clonmel Street is a wonderful shop full of magic and mystery; a place dedicated to the wondrous and mystical world brought to life by J.K Rowling.

Llandudno’s Hogwarts! The Wonderful Wizarding Boutique.

The Wizarding Boutique in Llandudno is a Harry Potter fan’s dream, the perfect place for all your magical needs.

Last month we brought some of our wizarding magic to one of their special ticketed events. It was a blast to be a part of and everyone had a great time, with plenty of positive comments following the evening. Thanks to this success we’re returning to Llandudno’s Hogwarts with even more magic and mystery.

An evening of magic and potion making

This is a brilliant and unique night out for any Potter fan. The evening begins with a serving of Butterbeer, a truly tasty beverage straight from the books. Then once everyone is all settled in, Jay kicks off the night with his magic and illusion show; you’ll feel like you have truly entered into a school of witchcraft and wizardry!

Then it’s time to put your crafty mind in gear and create your own potion, by the end of this you’ll have your own unique item to put proudly on your mantelpiece at home. Just make sure you tell all your guests that just one sip will turn them into a toad!

And the evening closes out with the dastardly, difficult (but fair all the same) Harry Potter quiz. This is the ultimate test to see if you are the Hermoinie of Potter fans, and an unlimited font of wizarding knowledge.

After all that, you will be able to peruse the shop and maybe find that last thing you need for your collection. It’s a brilliant event and perfect fun for all ages, there’s something for everyone to sink their teeth into.

And it’s important to remember that we solemnly swear that we are up to no good. Are you? Come along and join us in some Harry Potter revelry.

What you need to know about a Harry Potter evening in Llandudno

The event will take place on Wednesday the 26th of June 2019 at 6.30pm and is suitable for all ages, though under 12s must have an adult with them (only the participating child needs a ticket).

Tickets are £15 and can be booked online through the Wizarding Boutique website.

Gwrych Castle 200th Birthday: An epic celebration for 200 years!

Gwrych Castle 200th Anniversary open weekend 15-16th June 2019

North Wales has lots of beautiful venues and places to visit, but alas some have fallen by the wayside and been neglected. But some of these stories have happy futures, such as Gwrych Castle. Left to rot and ruin for many years, it was a fine turn of events when the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, headed by Mark Baker, stepped in to help restore this gorgeous site.

We’ve had the privilege to work at this wonderful venue a number of times in the past couple of years, with medieval and local community events, and this year we’re back there several times more, starting with a big old celebration. A double celebration to be accurate; on June 15th and 16th Gwrych Castle will be celebrating its 200th birthday and also the 1st anniversary of the Trust’s purchase of Gwrych.

It’s going to be a big party and you’re all invited to come along, the more the merrier as they say! It’s sure to be a fantastic day out for the whole family, with plenty to see and do. No party is complete without music and dance, and Gwrych have got you covered, with Mistrafunk performing live music in the old theatre, and Clerical Error morris dancers leading the way up the main driveway to their primary performance on the main terrace.

There’ll be face painting with Disney princesses, immersive historical guided tours of the site, magic shows and close-up miracles from Jay and much much more. And if you just want to put your feet up and enjoy this wonderful location you can do that too, with plenty of places to get some food and drink and set yourself up to soak in the atmosphere.

This is going to be a wonderful weekend and it would be awesome to see you there, so if you’re after something to do on the 15th and 16th of June come on down to Gwrych Castle 200th celebration and say hi!

Broughton & Bretton Carnival 2019

On Saturday the 8th of June it will be time to break out the Wizard robes once again and bring our unique magic to another North Wales event. You’ll find us at the Broughton & Bretton Carnival 2019, hosted at the Broughton and Bretton Community Centre, from 12pm until 5pm.

Broughton & Bretton Carnival 2019

We love taking part in these local community events, they are always well attended and help bring the community together with lots of fun activities for the whole family, and of course plenty of entertainment.

No carnival would be complete without an opening parade, and Broughton Carnival kicks off in just such a way. Jay has been asked to lead the parade this year. So keep an eye out for the Wizard of Conwy playing the pied-piper as he leads costumed folk, floats and bands galore, as they make their presence known and get the town hyped for the day’s event.

Throughout the day Jay will be about the carnival field entertaining one and all. He’s scheduled to perform his Wizard show on the field three times over the course of the day, so watch out as the crowds begin to gather for some wizard styled madness and fun. He will be sharing with all some of his favourite magical effects and challenging himself in unique ways for the enjoyment of all there gathered. Magic, juggling and impossible puzzles are all part of this enjoyable show.

Jay always likes to keep himself busy through an event, so between shows he’ll be engaging with attendees with some smaller tricks and effects as well. There’s nothing more astonishing than magic that happens right in your hands or inches from your face.

So if you’re attending the event, watch out for the green and blue robes across the field, and be sure to come by and say hi! We’d love to meet you there.

Details of the event can be found on the Facebook page, and on the Broughton & Bretton Carnival 2019 event page.
