Dean’s Magician Performances in Oxfordshire
Dean receives many private hire requests to perform his brilliant magic at various venues throughout Oxfordshire. Everything from weddings and banquets to gala balls and corporate functions.
Oxfordshire is home to several affluent towns such as Banbury and Henley-on-Thames, the latter famous for its posh regatta, while Oxford itself is home to one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious universities. And Inspector Morse of course. The county of Oxfordshire also contains no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sitting majestically amongst all this beautiful countryside, you will find many grand country houses, the most famous of which is Blenheim Palace. But, here we share an account of one of Dean’s performances at an equally impressive location.
Magic Performance for Wedding at Aynhoe Park Oxfordshire
Aynhoe Park is a beautiful 17th-century country house in Oxfordshire standing in 250 acres of countryside near to the Cotswolds. It is a truly wonderful, stunning and imposing manor house. Inside its grand walls, historic opulence and modern whimsy come together to create a place unlike any other country house.
On this particular occasion, Dean was hired to perform magic for the wedding of Neil Reading.
Now, Mr Reading is PR Manager for John Cleese, Ben Elton, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Lenny Henry amongst others. And yet, with all the amazing show business celebrities Mr Reading knows, he chose Dean as the magician to entertain his guests. The sun was shining, the views were glorious and the venue was out of this world. What could possibly go wrong?
As it turned out, the day went really well and Dean was very well received – as you might expect. Although, Dean does recall that there was one little hiccup . . .
This is REAL Live Magic!
While performing mix and mingle magic, Dean’s very first guests to entertain were a group of immaculately dressed ladies, all huddled together in deep conversation. Well, Dean says his opening words were “Sorry to break you up here. You have all seen the likes of Dynamo using hidden helpers and cleverly edited TV, but I am here to show you some real live magic right under your noses“. To which one women shouted “Don’t say that! I am the producer of the show!“.
And it turns out she wasn’t kidding.
Of course, Dean did tell her that she would know what he is saying is quite true. She didn’t argue back but it did make the series of tricks he performed next rather more hard work!
Nevertheless, this event turned out to be such a memorable occasion. A little bit of magic in deepest Oxfordshire.
