Performing to Newcastle Medical students

I performed magic to over 400 Newcastle students at Beamish Hall Country House Hotel on the day that they found out they had all become Doctors!

All the students were really up for it and a lot of fun to perform for!

The graduation ball for the students was being held at Beamish Hall hotel, which is a beautiful venue in the heart of County Durham in the North-East. The venue itself is stunning and the staff were fantastic.

Performing at Becky and Stuart's wedding

I had a fantastic time performing at Becky and Stuart's wedding at the Netherwood Hotel in Grange, Cumbria.

A lot of my magic happens inside your hands

I arrived to perform at the evening reception. Everyone was pretty full from the meal and just chilling out quietly. It seemed like I arrived at the perfect time to turn up and get the energy and excitement going again for the evening party.

Within no time at all, everyone was buzzing and laughing from all the excitement. I lost count of the number of 50p coins I bent. I imagine some people woke up the next day with pocketfuls of unusable coins, though no one seemed to mind...! 

The Netherwood Hotel in Grange is a lovely venue for getting married. I've performed there many times over the years at weddings as well as a corporate event and even a sixth form ball once. The staff are all fantastic and it's a pleasure to get to entertain in such a stunning hotel. 

I also got to work with photographer Ian Wood. This was my first time working with Ian but he was an absolute delight and within no time I felt like I'd known him years. All the photos on this page were taken by Ian and I am thoroughly impressed by them. I strongly recommend you check out his website as I will be recommending him to future couples. I also got to work with Ryan Iredale from Cumbria Wedding Films who did a great job of getting all the right shots.

I ended my time at the wedding with a special performance just for the Bride and Groom. I started things off with a card trick that left them with a special souvenir and then produced something magical in a literal puff of smoke (and massive ball of fire!). I can't say too much about it, other than it went down very well. These nice words were left from the lovely bride Becky.

“Chris came to our wedding to entertain our guests, and to be honest he soon felt like one of the guests himself! He put everyone at ease and made sure he saw as many people as possible. Our friends and family are still talking about his magic two weeks later.

Thanks again Chris - you were brilliant!”
— Becky Game

It really was a fabulous day and all the guests were really friendly and fun. What a pleasure!
