I had a great time helping Malcolm celebrate his 70th birthday at The Elvetham Hotel in Hartley Wintney in north Hampshire on Saturday night.

Elvetham Hotel Party Magician QuoteI first met Malcolm (and his wife, Kim-Britt) at a Porsche launch event in Guildford about five years ago. He then booked me himself for another family member’s birthday at his home, and then again for his own 70th celebrations.

The evening started with a champagne reception in the bar for an hour, before the guests were called through to the The Library for dinner. I’ve been to the Elvetham many (many!) times over the years but this was the first time I have entertained in this fantastic room.

I then continued around the tables whilst guests were sitting and getting served. Naturally I always avoid people whilst they are eating, but there is of course plenty of time when guests are finding their seats, making small-talk, waiting to be served, waiting for plates to be cleared and all the other things that can generally feel a bit awkward for a guest.

Malcolm sent me a lovely email today:

Hi Robert,

As always you were BRILLIANT and left all our guests wanting to know… ” how does he do that ? “… but then I guess it’s just Magic !!

Thank you for coming (on your birthday too ) and helping to make a most memorable occasion for myself, Kim-Britt and ALL our guests. They loved you !!!

You are indeed a STAR.

We will definitely be seeing you again !!

Cheers

Malcolm & Kim-Britt
