We’ve been rather busy of late, so I’m a little behind with the blog posts. (If you’re wondering what it was that kept us so busy, visit the blog again later in the week, and there’ll be a post all about it.)
Today’s blog is a combination of two of our recent events, that share a common strand.
Firstly, back in June we performed at a James Bond themed evening for the Venue Cymru Fundraisers and the Llandudno Lions. It was a great chance for us to try something new, and we themed our magic using ideas and music from the James Bond films.
We almost also ended up with a stowaway, when Bernie tried to sneak into one of our bags when we weren’t looking. We managed to persuade him to stay at home, but he wasn’t very happy about it!
At the beginning of July we took part in the North Wales Magic Circle’s annual stage and cabaret competition.
Inspired by the themed show that we’d just done, we put together a new act specially for the competition. The ten minute act used music from the James Bond films as a backdrop to the magic.
January and February were quiet months, mostly spent going over our stage routines and polishing them up. In March rehearsals for the summer season started, and continued into April,
May was when things really started to get busy. We performed at the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza for the fourth consecutive year, and the summer season at Llandudno Town Hall started. On the 18th of June, we performed our 100th stage show. We also launched this blog.
In June we took part in a show at Venue Cymru, as well as the ongoing summer shows. July saw our first medieval street performances in Rhos on Sea, and the continuation of the summer season. In August we did several days of medieval street magic in Conwy, and our new website went online.
We got our first look at the refurbished Theatr Colwyn in October when we took part in the Summer Spectacular show. We also visited London, to take part in J-Day and perform at the world famous Magic Circle.
