Surrey Magician Theo is Compere and Auctioneer at Astrid McGechan Book Launch “The Elmbridge Hundred” with Michael Aspel OBE at The Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre Walton-on-Thames Surrey
This took place at The Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre Walton-on-Thames Surrey on 11th November 2014 with Michael Aspel OBE and over 100 people in attendance including the Mayor of Elmbridge and Cllr Barry Fairbank.
Astrid McGechan said: Theo had performed on sports days for the nursery my daughter went to for many years and I always thought he was great. So I booked him as entertainer, compère and auctioneer for the opening night of my book launch exhibition on 11 November 2014 in Walton-on-Thames. Theo entertained the guests with close-up magic, making them feel relaxed and comfortable and led an auction of a limited edition signed framed print with all proceeds going to charity. Feedback (and photographs) from the event suggests everyone was very happy, not just me! I can thoroughly recommend Theo – he was able to deliver exactly to a specific brief, which helped make my event a success!
As can been seen in the photos there was a good atmosphere in the room, which enabled the one off limited edition signed print to go for a good amount. This together with a percentage of the book sales and other photo prints, a nice sum was donated to The Princess Alice Trust in Esher.
