What a swell party it was!


Nothing to do with work but I always like to recommend anybody that does a good job and these people did a fantastic job at my 50th birthday party on Saturday so here goes.

Rob Chapman – table magician who kept the guests entertained as they arrived.  He really was brilliant.  I watched him close up and couldn’t see the sleight of hand that made the tricks into magic.  Also at the end he did a card trick just for me that I swear must have been real magic and yes, I was sober at the time. http://robchapman.weebly.com/

Arden Pig Company – did the BBQ and considering it was for 120 people it was all served on time and was absolutely delicious. It is the second gig they have done for us, the other being a pig roast,  and both were perfect. http://www.ardenpigcompany.co.uk/

Shakers – ran the Tikki bar and were exceptionally good. The pre-event administration was exceptionally good with nothing being too much trouble and on the night the cocktailiers were very entertaining. An excellent team I thought. http://www.shaker-events.co.uk/news.cfm

Oceans 3 casinos – arrived after the steel band left and ran a really good show. We had black-jack and roulette but I think they offer other kit as well. Everybody was issued with chips and then the winners each received a prize. Great fun! www.oceans3casinos.com.

The Steel Band – it being a Caribbean party and all. They kept the whole thing going during the early part of the evening – all very Caribbean even if the weather was not. www.steelpansoloist.co.uk.

All round great event I thought and precisely what I wanted thanks to Mrs Ames and some very thirsty guests – it made being 50 almost OK! A bit sluggish yesterday morning though.
