Hull Magicians' Circle 80th Anniversary Dinner 2014

" I am writing to congratulate you, and of course the Chef and all Staff involved, for the superb meal and the overall arrangements made for the Dinner last Saturday evening.

We have received numerous plaudits for the meal and show and it is good to know that it was a delightful evening for both our regular supporters and newcomers experiencing their first HMC Dinner, and already looking forward to 2015!

You may be interested to learn that the Hull Dinner now attracts more diners than any other magical society Dinner in Britain, and that includes very large societies such as The Magic Circle in London and the British Magical Society in Birmingham, and there is no doubt in my mind that is largely due to the splendid meals and services that you are able to provide for use. We are extremely grateful."
