Spell-bind­ing show with a royal link

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Abracadabra -

A teenage ma­gi­cian put on a spell-bind­ing per­for­mance at the wed­ding of Sarah Fer­gu­son’s per­sonal as­sis­tant.

The spe­cial pow­ers of for­mer Home­wood pupil Lewis Fuller, 19, were called upon for the nup­tials of Sofia Hur­d­ing (nee Ad­kins) on Satur­day, July 1 at Pratts Farm, near Chelms­ford.

It’s not the first time that Lewis, who is from Bid­den­den, has ap­peared in front of the Duchess of York, as he per­formed at a gala din­ner hosted by her at the Mer­chants Tay­lors’ Hall in London last sum­mer.

Lewis, who is also a singer, min­gled with guests at the wed­ding break­fast, when the cham­pagne corks were pop­ping and the photographs taken, do­ing close-up magic in­volv­ing cards, coins and per­sonal be­long­ings.

Hiss in­ter­est in magic stemmed from the age of 10 and he said. “I started do­ing magic tricks af­ter my dad brought me a ba­sic magic box as a present and I never stopped.”

He has per­formed his tricks in front of a num­ber of celebri­ties in­clud­ing Alan Carr and Jonathan Ross and has worked as a pro­fes­sional ma­gi­cian for the last three years, re­cently launch­ing his own com­pany The Singing Ma­gi­cian UK.

Lewis was in­tro­duced to the wed­ding guests by the duchess be­fore he rounded off the day’s en­ter­tain­ment by singing two Michael Bu­ble num­bers.
