Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire

Table Magic and Mix and Mingle Magic

The Sculpture Gallery at Woburn Abbey is a classic, beautiful and high-end venue which provides very grand surroundings for wedding magic in Bedfordshire.

I was asked to entertain 120 people at a recent wedding, with half of my time spent performing at the drinks reception, then the other half spent at the tables in between courses.

My aim was to see at least half of the guests during the drinks reception. At the meal, those guests will be sitting with people who won’t have seen my performance, which is great as it means they’ll welcome me over and create a bit of a buzz about what they’ve already seen.

I have got a lot of tricks in my repertoire so it’s easy to make sure I don’t do the same one twice; and luckily, some tricks are more suitable for doing at tables and others standing up.

When I’m performing table magic, I always confer with the head waiter beforehand to make sure I work the opposite way to that of the waiting staff so I don’t get under their feet whilst they’re trying to serve the food. Just as well, as at this event, I found that people sitting around us were leaning over to watch what was going on at the other tables, so my table magic became more of a series of mini shows!

The event was entertaining for me as I got a great response as I went round. During the drinks reception I was able to gauge the reactions of people so when I was going round the tables, I knew which people were the most enthusiastic so I could start talking to them and they got everyone else involved.

Everyone wants to be entertained at a wedding and splitting the magic this way certainly kept the energy levels high.

“Thank you once again Chris for your superb magic skills at our wedding. Everyone keeps talking about you and your great magic. I am so pleased you were a part of our special day – it really made it feel special.” Sophie and Harry Butterworth
