Kidderminster magic night to conjure up funds for Cancer Research
6:50am Monday 7th October 2013 in Local
A KIDDERMINSTER magician is hoping to conjure up funds for Cancer Research at a comedy and magic night.
Jamie Curtis, a zookeeper at West Midland Safari Park by day, is hosting the event for Cancer Research as his mother Karen Millard is battling the disease.
He said: “Unfortunately, my mum’s had it a few times and she was diagnosed again about a year and half ago. It’s there to stay now. It’s in her lungs and it’s trying to get into her bones. Cancer Research has done a lot for us.”
The evening of magic and comedy will be held at Carters Bar in Kidderminster on Friday, October 25.
Mr Curtis, originally from Essex, added: “I started performing magic three or four years ago. I haven’t been doing it very long but I’ve taken it up with a huge passion. Everyone seems to think I’m pretty good. Magic’s become a huge thing over the last few years.”
The evening will include six up and coming comedians followed by close-up magic by Mr Curtis, a second magician and a special guest.
Mr Curtis has invited friends from Essex and the London circuit to perform at the event and hopes that it could become a monthly show.
He added: “There’s not a lot of entertainment in Kidderminster. I want to have people want to come into the town. I’m hoping to draw a big crowd.”
Tickets cost £5 and are available from Carters Bar or cost £8 on the door.
