Magician Tony Steward has been among the winners of the London Marathon for the seventh year in a row!
But the master of magical trickery and illusion didn’t actually run the race. Instead, he watched it on telly at home and later in the day, headed for the post-race awards banquet to entertain the winners and VIPs.
This year, the banquet was held at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel which opened less than a year ago in the City of London.
Among the guests at the banquet were winners of the men’s event, women’s event and wheelchair medallists, together with other athletes, officials and VIPs.
Tony helped guests to break the ice at a drinks reception where he performed roaming magic to the delight of spellbound onlookers. After the awards presentations, he presented some of the amazing close-up table magic which has earned him a place among the ranks of the elite Inner Magic Circle.
Tony was first invited to entertain at the London Marathon winners’ banquet in 2006 and he has been invited back each year since.
He said: “It’s always a great honour to perform at this event. The audience are always extremely appreciative.
“It doesn’t matter where in the world guests are from, magic has a universal appeal and language is never a barrier.”
Tony is an accomplished corporate entertainer and will be delighted to discuss availability for company events, trade shows, product launches etc in London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire and further afield. He is also one of the region’s best-known magicians for weddings and private parties.
