Elizabeth’s 7th birthday at Watton at Stone!

Thanks to Vanessa for sending some photos of her daughter, Elizabeth’s party which was held at Watton at Stone Village Hall …. just down the road from where Rupert Grint used to live! Everyone looked great in their costumes, especially Elizabeth and her elder brother.¬† Take a look below!

Warning ….. Stephen J. Brightman!

The Grand Hotel in Hartlepool had a visit from the professor yesterday when he entertained 7 young guests in the Jackson Room. I set off at 9 o’clock in the morning for the 5 hour trip and spent all day bringing a touch of magic to Swanston Street, ready for the evening start at 8 o’clock!

At 11 o’clock in the evening the party was over and everything had been packed away in my room. At half past midnight there was a knock at the door and the night porter, Stephen J. Brightman, a fully paid up member of the awkward squad, woke me up to announce that my dog was not allowed in the room, despite having been in the hotel all day and performing for our young guest wizards.

Overcome by his wit and charm, I was left with no alternative but to pack everything into my car and set off at half past one in the morning for a sleepless 5 hour trip through the night, arriving home at dawn. I have contacted the hotel manager, Craig, and have been offered an apology and a thoughtful cash offer for compensation  which I shall forward to our local animal shelter!

I think this young man deserves to be head boy of one of our houses …. I’ll let you guess which one!

Leon’s 6th Birthday at Pinewood House.

The professor and Daniel Radcliffe’s lookalike came to Pinewood House in Oxshott for Leon’s 6th birthday party. Dad was well qualified to decorate the house as he’s the Russian film producer Dmitry Lesnevsky! The weather was super for the games in the garden with Luke,Dan Radcliffe’s lookalike, posing with his wand waving techniques for the boys and girls. Thanks to Vladimir Spirov for the photo!

Alice’s 6th birthday party!

Thanks to Alice’s mum for the following email ….

“Dear Professor, thank you so much for giving Alice and her friends the most fantastic afternoon. We had high expectations but your party exceeded them. Not only did you engage with Alice, the birthday girl, whilst you diligently set everything up at our house but you were very generous with your time – we have never entertained an entertainer for so many hours with such ease – and your performance and party patter was outstanding. It was a truly special, magical and hugely enjoyable afternoon. We cannot thank you enough. Catherine.”

Aiden’s 5th Birthday brings Magic to Manuden Village!

Wizarding congratulations must go to Aiden’s grandma, Sally, who spent so much time with the professor when she helped prepare Manuden Village Community Centre. It looked superb as dad, Sir Rod Stewart, arrived with mum, sporting her witch’s hat. They arrived with 5 year old Aiden dressed as the boy wizard with his elder brother, Alexander! Aiden made a big impression with his knowledge of all things magical and sent this reply to his “witch and wizard” birthday card …… “Thank you. I had a very good party. All my friends loved it. Aiden.”
