This was the first time I'd been downstairs at The Micklegate Social, on Micklegate York.

This was a masquerade ball so there was me masquerading as a magician, although I couldn't keep the mask on for too long as I needed to wear my glasses to see what I was doing. 

Towards the end of the evening Diane, Jonathan and Cynthia collared me and we had a cosy little show over one of the low tables. Diane was ultra inquisitive and I could see that many of my mis-direction techniques were just not going to work on her. I taught them all a simple trick.

A little repeat show at the other end of the room and I presented Kat and her husband with a special souvenir card. I should have remembered to tell them that the trick is called The Anniversary Waltz. Doh!
