Magical fun at a Sheffield hotel

A LEADING Sheffield hotel has sprinkled a touch of magic to its evenings by hiring a resident magician.

Steve Faulkner, the 2009 British Street Performing Champion, will be up to his usual tricks at The Copthorne Hotel Sheffield to entertain guests and enhance their stay.

Steve, 36, from Sheffield, has been a magician and street performer for 14 years performing his captivating illusions at corporate events around the world and warming up audiences for music acts including The Rolling Stones.

As well as holding the current national accolade for street performance, Steve was also the winner of the 2005 award.

Steve joins The Copthorne Hotel as the City’s only resident hotel magician.

Steve said: “The wonderful thing about Copthorne is that it gets me in contact with the people of Sheffield. The hotel attracts lovely people of all ages and it’s a great place for me to work.

“I live and breathe what I do. As well as the hours I do performing, I practice for four or five hours a day.

“Some of the tricks have taken nine years to develop and I will never get rid of them but I like to try new things. Magic is a bit like golf – you can always improve! People remember it for long time and that’s what I like about it.”

Orla Watt, General Manager at The Copthorne Hotel Sheffield, said: “We are thrilled Steve has joined our team. He’s great at connecting with our guests and making them laugh.

“It is really important for us to further enhance our guests’ visit to the hotel and Steve provides an entertaining and fun experience for all ages. We’re the only hotel that has its own resident magician so you could say we’ve pulled a rabbit out of the hat!”

Steve will be working his magic at The Copthorne Hotel Sheffield once a week in the hotel’s bar.
