write up on High Jinx !

A Blackpool magician was among the artistes showcasing Britain’s status as an events’ destination at a glittering international gala. Michael Jordan’s High Jinx show, which runs at Viva Blackpool throughout the year, was one of the acts taking part in the launch of MeetGB - a VisitBritain conference aimed at encouraging overseas firms to host their major corporate events in the UK. The gala night took place at Church House, Westminster Abbey. It was directed and choreographed by former Pleasure Beach artistic director Antony John and also featured Blackpool circus artiste Valerie Murzac. Michael, from Huddersfield, is back in Blackpool with his High Jinx family magic show for the seventh year. “It was an incredible show to be part of,” he said. “I’ve done a lot of big corporate jobs before but this was a different level. “The whole idea of the event was to tell big companies that they can and should have their big corporate days and events in Britain instead of going abroad to places like Dubai.

Ken Dodd

Respect for Ken Dodd passing....

I think he just did the second half ....and rounded up the whole story in 2 mins !

thank goodness in those days they didn't have school performances !!!

Dougie told me a sweet story....

Dougie on Ken Dodd.... Dougie was choreographing Ken’s BBC TV series ...Ken. didn’t like rehearsing and on the first week everyone was getting worried as he hasn’t showed up for rehearsals for 4 days and they were recording the next day .... he arrived in the afternoon full of apologises.... Sorry DOUGIE I got lost On the M1 !
