Still Worth the Drive to Acton

I was in Acton last weekend doing a special fundraiser for Heritage Acton. It was a gorgeous space and a wonderful audience and we had a great time.

I was a little surprised to wake up to an email saying that our fundraiser made the front page of the local newspaper, The New Tanner:

From the review:

James Alan amazed and amused, baffled and confused, but mostly delighted and entertained the audience at the Acton Town Hall Centre last Saturday night, with his Magic and Martini show. The full house enjoyed dinner, cocktails, and an evening of playful sleight of hand puzzles, loopy rope entanglements, and hilarious audience participation.

From the organizers: 

A sophisticated blend of classical and modern magic that is engaging, throught-provoking and thoroughly entertaining. Enjoy a wonderful evening out with that special person, family or friends. A delicious buffet dinner will be proivded by Everton Culinary Academy, various drinks & martinis will be mixed and served throughout the evening. Come and see one of the country’s premier sleight-of-hand performers. You will be amazed!!!
