On 4th November we had great magical fun at Theydon Bois Baptist Church. The audience was fantastic - joining in the with the magic and even laughing at some of my jokes! It's always a joy to perform when everyone is so engaged with what is going on.
Stew the Rabbit was his usual disruptive and magical self - managing to upstage me (as usual) with his knife-throwing skills.
