As a Lake District magician, my love affair with the Lakes probably stems from my childhood. I used to spend my summer holidays there at my great uncles’ farm in the small hamlet of Thackthwaite. It lies between the hills of Great Melfell & Little Melfell near Penrith.

Every single time that I travel the few miles from my home in Lancaster to the Lake District to perform at a wedding or a party, I can’t help thinking what a brilliant commute this is. As I pass Kendal and head towards Windermere the view opens out into the most amazing area that I can imagine. High fells overlooking deep lakes creating the most atmospheric place. Even when the clouds are heavy and threatening rain, for me, it is only to show another side of the Lake District’s ever changing character.

Probably, the best reason that I enjoy being a Lake District Magician are the people. Friendly and helpful to everyone, I have always found Lake District folk to be some of the most genuine people that I have ever met.

I have always felt privileged that so many people have asked me to be part of their very special day. People have been very kind with their thank you letters and it is always a huge pleasure to receive their comments and feedback on the event .

However, if you are wanting to book your party here you will want to know more about the place than just the view so I am very happy to say that all the hotels and party venues where I have performed have been totally geared towards providing the very best customer care.

There are so many large hotels, small boutique hotels and quirky out of the way places that whatever your ideas might be, there will a place in the Lake District for you. This too makes my job as a Lake District magician easier as I know that everyone will be relaxed in the knowledge that their party is well in hand.

If you’re planning an event in Cumbria, then this Lake District magician would love to be part of your plans!
