"My Magic Highlight of The Year" 2009
MagicWeek readers tell us their personal magic highlights
"It was pretty early on in the year, January the 10th, when I was asked to take part in a charity event to help raise money for the North West air ambulance at the Marine Hall in Fleetwood in front of a sell out crowd (around 500+). Often walked past the theatre, when walking along the beach, but never in my wildest dreams, did I ever think I would perform there."
"Highlight of the year for me was interviewing Rene Lavand on stage at the International Magic Convention."
"Say what you like about it, but Derren Brown’s
lottery prediction sparked something of a domino effect of people asking me how
it was done. The interest around magic that this stunt caused was amazing.
People I don’t even know but had heard I was a magician were suddenly asking me
where they can start to learn magic."
"I was pleased to be awarded both the Jim Lumley Cup and NMC Vice Presidents Trophy for close-up magic at this year's Northern Magic Circle convention in Southport."
"My magical highlights of the year has got to be

What's in store for 2010?...."
