This week I was hired to perform close up magic in at Downing College in Cambridge.

The college was founded in 1800. It was financed by Sir George Downing with money left after his death. It has wonderful lawns at its centre and is made up of several neo-classical buildings. It is situated right in the heart of Cambridge just off Parker’s Piece.

I was invited to perform for the Interscience Communications staff and delegates who were meeting at the college for a short conference.

he company is involved in the psychology of human behaviour when confronted by fire. Ironic given that some of my tricks involve something called flash paper. It is a thin paper-like substance which when lit burns quickly and leaves no trace. Many great magic tricks have been invented using this particular prop.

It was a wonderful evening and the members were very receptive.

I received this wonderful email.

“Please pass on our thanks to Tim for the splendid performance he put on the other evening at Downing College. The feedback we had was excellent and the performance went down so very well with all the delegates. I think he gathered that from the amount of applause and the comments in the closing speech by the conference chair!”

Tj regularly performs his magic in the Cambridge area, so if you are looking for a professional magician for an event, get in touch
