JUGGLING John made it a magical day at Barefoot Books with a performance for youngsters as the school holidays drew to an end.

The children’s entertainer was at the Banbury Road, Oxford, store for the latest in a series of events held over the summer.

Five-year-old Ciara Andreae said: “I liked watching the tricks and I thought it was really fun and interesting.”

Dad Hans said they were regular visitors to Barefoot Books.

He said: “Ciara really enjoyed the show, she got to do a few tricks herself.

“It was the first time she had been up close to a magician and she has been trying to do magic at home ever since.

“Barefoot Books often do shows and events.

“Juggling John did cards. He had magic balls that disappeared, juggling, balancing acts and that sort of thing. It was a really good day.”
