18 years ago, when I was 10 years old, I was a member of the Cornish Magical Society (hold yourself back ladies, I’m already taken). Once a week my parents would taken my along to the club where I would meet with hobbiest and professional magicians, and I’d get the chance to talk shop. I was by far the youngest in the group and totally in awe of these wizards. Twice a year, we’d get the chance to do proper shows in theatres with lights and everything. At this point in my career/childhood that I was also performing magic as well as juggling. These shows played a massive part in the shaping of my career. It was so important for me at this age to be exposed to such opportunities and I am eternally grateful to the Cornish Magical Society for helping me out at this young age. I can honestly say, if it wasn’t for the CMS, I might not be doing what I am doing today.
This weekend, for the first time in about 17 years, I performed at the Cornish Magical Society Annual Dinner. It was amazing to perform to the people that helped kick start my career. It was fantastic to catch up and reminisce about the good old days. Also, my Mum, Dad and brother came to catch the show! I always get more nervous when I have family in the audience. I cannot stress how much it means to look into the audience and see family members smiling and laughing. The show went well, and was a lot of fun indeed. Cornish Magical Society, Thank-you for having me and thanks for everything else!
