Shy and lacking in confidence, life changed for Tammy Davidson at the age of 16 when she joined a local Magic Circle and became their youngest member. Now, at the age of 18, she runs her own magic shows and children’s parties in between her school studies. As well as magic, the budding entrepreneur taught herself balloon modelling, juggling and various circus skills.

Encouraged by friends and family, she was asked to perform magic at a 30th birthday party and this led to other things such as corporate events and Christmas fayres.

Now in charge of her own business, Tamtastic Entertainments, she has also given up her time to help local charities, offering her services for free at events.

Tammy has also been offered a week’s residency at Britain’s magic bar, the first woman to ever be given the opportunity.
