Erwyd and Gatling’s Magical Matinee is a family friendly magic show packed full of comedy, audience participation, juggling, and mild hysteria… There will be some magic in there too, we promise.
The Magical Matinee is part of the North Wales Burlesque and Cabaret Festival that happens every year on the last weekend of January at Theatr Colwyn in Colwyn Bay.
This show is 100% family friendly.
Why have a family show at a burlesque and cabaret festival?
It’s a good question. Basically, over the years the festival has been asked if there was anything people could bring their kids to and until now they’ve had to say no. But thanks to phenomenal support from Colwyn Bay Town Council and Theatr Colwyn, we’re now able to provide a fantastic family show at this fabulous event.
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 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.

And so another wedding fair season comes to a close. As the nights draw in and the sound of jingle bells is on the horizon, the last few wedding exhibitions prepare to show off all that is available to budding brides and grooms, before heading into hibernation to start it all again next spring. 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.
Having been to Chester Racecourse in the past for other events we know it to be a wonderfully extravagant venue to have a wedding, one that is definitely worth checking out. 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. All in all it’s set to be a grand day full of fantastic wedding ideas. We look forward to chatting with all the excited brides and grooms and helping to build on the positive memories of their special day.

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.
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.
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.
