Britain's Got Talent Winner Richard Jones Leaves British Troops Spellbound

Army Lance Corporal and Magician Takes His Magic Tour to Kabul, Giving A Morale Boost to Those Serving in Afghanistan

Forces Live Events (CSE), experts in the organisation of bespoke live entertainment events for the Armed Forces, have just returned from a magical trip to Afghanistan with Lance Corporal Richard Jones - the first and only magician to ever win Britain's Got Talent.

Supported by fellow magician, Daniel Boyles, Richard toured his magic show around various bases in Kabul. The audience mainly consisted of UK troops, but the show was also enjoyed by coalition forces from Turkey, Australia, New Zealand and the USA, among others. Each location was packed to the rafters - with standing room only.

Angie Avlianos, Entertainment Manager for Forces Live Events (CSE), said: "This was a physically demanding tour during an unstable time for Afghanistan. There were three attacks during the week of our visit which highlights the difficult and challenging job our coalition forces face every day. To be able to bring them entertainment like this is a huge honour and it was so lovely to see them laughing and enjoying the brief diversion.
