Ed Strong & Peterborough Museum Treat Audience to Magic with a Classic Touch

 

The One They Love: Ed Strong

Ed Strong, founder of the Peterborough Society of Magicians and all-around good guy, worked with the Peterborough Museum to entertain parents and kids at the It?s Magic fest this weekend. 

 

Mr. Strong has been entertaining since he was 16-years-old.  He won a local talent competition at that tender age, was hooked, and hasn?t stopped since.  He offers shows appropriate for kids? parties, adult get-togethers, and Gospel-themed events. 

 

Given that background, you would figure he would be a natch for showing museum attendees a bit of the history of magic.  He was. 

 

Mr. Strong showed his audience the fictional and real from Magic?s history.  He offered a show themed around the history and fiction of magic, with demonstrations of real illusions and a display of the history of wizardry.

 

The museum displays charted this history and tradition of magic as well as the more popular (if fictional) world of magic seen in popular movies like Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. 

 

How did he do?  Well, the client was happy.  ?Stuart Orme, museum marketing and events officer, said: ?It’s Magic went extremely well.

 

??It exceeded all our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves ? so much so that we’re looking to hold a similar event later in the year.?”
