Lets delve into the past and take a look at those pioneering woman who struggled against the glass ceiling in their bid to become world leading magicians and mentalists
Here's a clip of my performance for The Next Great Magician which aired in November 2016 on ITV1. This was so much fun to shoot, I hope you enjoy it!
I was thrilled to be featured on the cover of Genie - The Conjuror's Magazine, earlier this year. The interview, with David Brittland, is covered on a 14-page spread, in which we talk about my journey as a Magician, where it all began, the high's and low's of my career and my experience of working in the magic industry.
The Magic Circle is celebrating 25 years of allowing women to be members. In 1991, 75% of members voted to include women in the membership. Today, there are over 1500 members, but still only 68 of these are women.
An event was held at The Magic Circle to celebrate this milestone, at which myself and some of fellow female magician friends performed at. It was really exciting to see how far women have come, in only a short amount of time, in this art form.
On the 1st July 2016, I was awarded the degree of ‘Associate of the Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star’. This is such an honour, and I am so pleased to receive this, especially as it’s this year that we celebrate 25 years of women in The Magic Circle!
I recently performed at a 25th birthday party at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. The guests arrived on boats to the exquisite museum, as a live orchestra played.
As always, Amsterdam is such a beautiful city to visit with it's pretty canals, colourful markets and interesting history.
Earlier this year, I filmed for a new ITV magic show, ‘The Next Great Magician’. This series features the world’s best magicians performing their greatest tricks, as they compete to be crowned ‘The Next Great Magician’.
It’ll be coming to your TV this winter from Sunday 6th November. You can see my episode on the 13th on ITV!
This Saturday night at The Vaults in Waterloo, I will be performing alongside Brendan Rodrigues and Tony Middleton (Headliner of 'The Magic Hour') at this Magic & Mixology event.
"Following its sell-out success, Magic + Mixology returns to the Vaults. In a world of camera tricks, clever lighting and deceptive editing, the best way to experience top-class magic is up close - right in front of your eyes. Step into an underground world of liquor and legerdemain and experience the impossible in your own hands. Witness an hour of top class magic at 7, 8 or 9pm and enjoy the rest of the evening in the atmospheric Vaults bar with exclusive magic cocktails."
There are still tickets available here!
The famous British 'Which?' charity asked me to assist them in raising awareness of scams, and how easy it is to fall prey to them.
"Which? exists to make individuals as powerful as the organisations they deal with in their daily lives and we seek to achieve this in a number of ways: our advice helps them make informed decisions; our campaigns make people's lives fairer, simpler and safer; and our services and products put consumers' needs first to bring them better value."
We produced a series of videos, and you can see one here!
‘The Guardian’ kindly invited three of my wizard friends and me to a preview of the new film ‘Now you See me 2’. We were asked to give our thoughts on the authenticity of their depiction of ‘a magicians life’ and whether their death-defying magic was possible.
Here’s the article.
I was lucky enough to be asked to perform at the lavish Hotel de la Paiva, in Paris, which became The Miu Miu Club for their one-night-only event. To honour the start of Couture week, MiuMiu opened Hôtel de la Païva’s doors to an array of stars from the fashion, film and music world. I was styled by the lovely Oliver Volquardsen, of Love Magazine.
There were margarita fountains, moustached men handing out cigarettes and drinks, backgammon and lots of dancing, as the wonderful DJ Kate Moss joined Katie Grand on the decks for some serious tunes! I had my very own ‘magic room’, and performed well into the early hours of the morning.
I enjoyed being be able to celebrate the 10th birthday of ‘Soap & Glory’ at Somerset House. Keeping it young and fresh as they always do, the theme was a 10-year old's birthday party! It was really interesting to be able to perform some tricks using the Soap & Glory products, and adults being kids always leads to a fun night!
London's Fabulous Fund Fair is hosted by supermodel friends Natalia Vodianova and Karlie Kloss. The funfair style event, which was held at Old Billingsgate Market, is in aid of Vodianova's charity for children, the 'Naked Heart Foundation'.
There were dodgems, great DJs, funfair games, and fantastic prizes, provided by some great brands. I was so happy to perform at this event, and even happier in hearing that the one-night event raised over £850,000 for the charity!
I had the pleasure of performing at the launch of Marc Jacob's Beauty range for Harrods at Park Chinois in Mayfair.
There were an array of people dining and dancing in the opulent oriental Club. Champagne cocktails flowed, and there was even a special performance by Beth Ditto. This was a great event to perform at to start off London Fashion Week!
In March, I was lucky enough to be invited by Deloitte to perform a stage show in Hyderabad, India.
As always, India was a sensory melting pot, colourful, magical and intense. While I was there I took the opportunity to go into the local villages and towns to perform magic and mind games to the local people.
This December and January, I'll be returning to perform onstage again for their management team.
