STREET FUN: Ruislip magician Matt Stirling dresses up for Clap the NHS

 Published on: 4th May 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Ruislip resident and magician, Matt Stirling, has been dressing up and wearing costumes for Clap the NHS in a bid to cheer people up during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Matt – who was one of the semi finalists at Britain’s Got Talent last year- dresses up every Thursday to honour the hard work of NHS workers.

He said: “I just go out on the street dressed up and have a bit of a laugh with everybody else, just to boost a bit of spirits.

“I think it’s important to do so because I think everybody’s moral is a bit down, everybody’s stuck inside therefore the aspect of not seeing each other has a dramatic effect on the way people feel and think.”

The magician wore a dinosaur costume the first time, followed by one where he was getting a piggyback by a teddy bear and one where he was locked in a cage carried by a gorilla.

This week (May 7) Matt will be having a Star Wars theme and he’s going to dress up as a stormtrooper.

He added: “The response has been great, it brings everybody out, they all have a bit of a laugh, we talk and you just get to know people that you didn’t really know previously, it just brings a smile to everybody’s faces.

“The kids are loving it too, they have also started to dress up now, which is really nice.”
