Last week, I was thrilled to be invited back to perform magic at the annual Paytech Awards. It’s my second year at this event and it’s a pleasure to work at.

The event is held at the Merchant Taylor’s Hall, a beautiful venue in the City of London.

150 or so people from the Payment Technology evening convene for an afternoon of lunch, awards and entertainment.

This year’s event kicked off with a Keynote speech from the wonderful Mandy Hickson, and ex-RAF pilot and author of “An Officer, Not a Gentleman”. Mandy also expertly hosted the award ceremony, before introducing me to do a spot of magic and mind reading.

For what sounds like quite a dry industry, it’s a surprisingly fun and welcoming group with and I thoroughly enjoyed performing there.

After another round of awards, I joined the nominees and winners on the terrace to entertain them with close-up magic over drinks.

Definitely one of my favourite events of the summer season, I hope to back again in 2025 for a 3rd year! If you’re looking for a magician for a corporate event, get in touch, I’d love to chat to you!
