It’s magic as Lee hops over the bar

A BARMAN at the Moreton Hall pub will be working on the other side of the bar tomorrow.

Lee Moss, a new barman at the pub will be putting 16 years of magical experience to good use for charity.

Lee, who moved to his home in Wagtail Drive from London 12 months ago, has performed for footballers including Thierry Henry, John Terry and Frank Lampard as well billionaire businessmen including Sir Richard Branson, Donald Trump and Sir Alan Sugar.

He has also performed at the Ivory Bar, in Bury St Edmunds, is resident magician at Innocence nightclub, in Newmarket, and has recently been invited to perform at September’s pre-launch party for the second series of the hit reality TV show The Only Way is Essex.

Georgina and Billy Barnes, landlords of the Ember Inn, in Lawson Place, are inviting customers to book a table for tomorrow’s ‘magician’s night’.

Diners who book a table between 6pm and 9pm will be able to enjoy a dining experience with a difference as they will be waited on and entertained by Lee’s magic at their table.

The sleight of hand magician will be moving between groups in the pub’s bar and the restaurant to perform tricks with cards and illusions using other people’s belongings, such as rings, hats or coins.

The 32-year-old, said: “People are really embracing it in the area because it’s something that’s not really been popular round this way. I’m looking forward to it.”

Proceeds from the night will go to St Nicholas Hospice Care, in Bury.

Staff will collect donations and a raffle will be held with an aeroplane ride as the top prize, donated by a regular who happens to be a pilot.

On Sunday, customers will receive a free pint of cask ale for every meal ordered from the pub’s specials menu.
