Gary’s fun entertaining life

After over 45 years of entertaining children and families, Gary can provide a fun, informative talk about how his show business started and how his shows were create over that time.

During the talk there will be interludes of circus tricks, magic and balloon modelling with music as a main theme.

This 45 minutes show is very light hearted and amusing and Gary would be happy to travel around Kent and East Sussex. There is no limit to the number watching.


Gary can also offer workshops on various topics. The popular ones being Flower making and about Victorian animation.

Something for people to keep on a window ledge would be a lovely display of paper / card crafted flowers. All materials are supplied and various methods of making will be explained.

He will explain to your club members about the history and invention of 5 Victorian viewers showing the actual items and then he will help and get your members to actually make a zoetrope that they can keep.. All materials supplied.

The session still lasts about 45 - 60 minutes and this would be for up to 10 -12 people.

What people say

Dear Gary

Just a few lines but a big thank you for a really enjoyable afternoon’s entertainment for our members last Monday.

It was good to see so many smiles, and hear the laughter, when there is so much to be sad about at the present time.

We wish you well and hope to see you again, maybe in 2025.

All best wishes

I've known Gary for a few years now, sadly not when he was a full time entertainer but I wish I had. I came into magic quite late in life and Gary has been a great help and inspiration by passing on many good tips that are only gained by many years of experience.  I have found that Gary's life as an entertainer so interesting, from the days of travelling abroad to entertain foreign royalty, performing all over the UK  at some pretty unique venues and his life as an agent employing other entertainers.  I think he should write a book but in the meantime,  get to meet him and listen, you will not be disappoint .

Hello Gary

Thank you so much for this morning, it was lovely to see everyone with a smile on their faces. One lady said she came to the café feeling very low and fed up but was going home feeling so much happier.

I will certainly pass onto the volunteers your Youtube channel.

Best wishes
