I am helping to organise a charity ball in aid of Cystic Fibrosis this November...(Can't post links but it's 'The Snowflake Ball 2015' on Facebook - currently at 725 likes).
Being a charity ball, we haven't got a huge budget for entertainment and many of our contributors are friends or acquaintances who have very kindly offered their services free of charge so that we can raise as much as we can for CF.
One type of entertainer we don't know however, is a magician! We would love to have someone come in to 'work the crowd' just during the drinks reception while people are arriving, however after receiving a quote of €800 ex VAT, not only did I nearly fall off my chair, but sort of lost hope!
So....here I am, asking a lot I know, but wondering if there are any aspiring magicians out there or someone who may only be starting out in their career who would be glad of the exposure, and wouldn't be looking for anything near €800 ex VAT?!
If this is something that might float anyone's boat, please do get in touch
