With the recent announcements by the government it seems that by the Summer and certainly by Autumn we shall be back to some normality and I can't wait for restaurants, theatres and cinemas to open. If everyone is like me, we are going to be gorging ourselves on entertainment, going out and doing all those things that we have missed out on over the past year.
But what of the event industry?
I think by September large scale events including trade shows, awards events and conferences will be back on the agenda, as well as client events, weddings and parties.
So I thought this would be an appropriate time to remind all my clients of what I can offer in the way of face to face entertainment...
Walkabout mindreading and "weird stuff"
Whether it be a client event, wedding, pre dinner drinks at a conference or a private party, walkabout mindreading is a great option to create a "buzz". Very interactive, unusual and great fun - whether it be revealing the name of someone's best friend, duplicating an unseen drawing or making something move without it being touched, this is entertainment that will get everyone talking!
After Dinner Show
Great for Awards Events, Conferences and Dinner Parties. Suitable for all audience sizes, this is a fun packed show lasting anything from 15 to 45 minutes depending on requirements. Interactive, engaging and different - with amazing predictions, mindreading and much more, this is a show that will be talked about long after the event is over. One of the highlights is where I get a woman on stage and tell her the name of her child and the time it was born - at that moment she looks at my watch which she has been holding and sees that it says the same time! The show can be tailored to the event, incorporating logos, company products and more, making it brilliant for product launches, client events and more.
The only one of its kind. This is a great option for Halloween or any large scale event with strange props, candles and more. The idea is that the parlour is set up with four chairs in front of it and guests join me for 10 - 15 minutes of weirdness. Strange stories of ghosts, witches, voodoo, victorian murder and more - expect the unexpected with this! The Dark Parlour is normally run over a 4 hour period as it is so popular that I invariably have a queue of people throughout the night who want to witness this unique form of entertainment.
In the meantime - I am still performing my virtual mindreading shows which have gone from strength to strength. Over the past year I have performed at awards events, team get togethers, client events and family and friends zoom meetings. I have really enjoyed adapting what I do to work in the online environment - it has been challenging but great fun and I have learned so much, creating new mindreading routines that work in this new world. I think that the virtual performances will still take place, even when we are out of this crisis and in the very least it makes it very easy to give a practical demonstration of what I do to potential clients.
According to PWC in their recent report " Covid 19 pulled the future forward and those who showed agility and resilience and an ability to provide consumers with a new version of their business model have survived and in some cases thrived. This adaptive style is set to continue and the suggestion is that consumers will not return to the old ways of consumption but will expect a providers to continue to experiment and create alternate delivery possibilities. The view is that some form of virtual socialising is here to stay, so content providers need to continue to invest in developing that area of their business." To read the whole report click here
Demand is sure to be high, especially for September onwards and with face to face events (unlike online shows) it is rare that I can fit in more than one in a day, so get in touch sooner rather than later to ensure you can secure the date you want.
