The Cardinal Ball - Hilton Cobham
You never know who you are going t meet and where! I met Ellie at a wedding fair and she knew there and then that a bit of Unbelievable Magic would be a great idea for an event she was planning that was coming up. Thankfully I was free and happy to go along!
It was the Cardinal Newman Ball a fundraiser event so it was packed full of people all having a great time. Drinks were flowing, laughter was had and some much needed money was raised!
Events like this can be challenging due to things like sound levels and lighting, centre pieces on tables. However when you have been doing this as long as I have you will have encountered these obstacles many times and know the best ways to make sure your performance isn't compromised by them.
It was a rip roaring few hours, one of those gigs you get out and are happy to unload your jacket, get in the car and wind the windows down on the journey back! It may have been hard work but these events are always full of energy and fun, they are fast paced and you ride from high to high from table to table (at lightning fast speed!) making them some of the most energetic and upbeat gigs. What a tough job hey?!!? ;)
