Another year, another great convention. This time Powys Charity Tattoo Convention, Wales, raised a staggering £5500 for The Riley and Jensen Foundation, St John’s Ambulance and The Royal British Legion. Everything from lip sync battles to prize auctions (…and even an auctioned off live beard shaving) helped make it another great success.
Johnny Strange was part of the line up of entertainment for a second year running, along with a whole host of other variety performers and musicians – Roll on 2017!

Johnny Strange celebrated International Sword Swallowers Day 2016 at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! in Blackpool this year.
Sword Swallowers Day is one day every year where sword swallowers from around the world gather at Ripley’s Believe it or not! museums to demonstrate the art of sword swallowing.
He demonstrated the ancient and deadly art of sword swallowing for spectators throughout the day before wowing the audience by attempted to set his ninth, and so far possibly his most dangerous, Guinness World Record to date. He managed to swallow a stainless steel blade measuring a phenomenal 61cm long, just over 2 feet in length, to the bottom of his stomach.

Johnny Strange has just finished performing in one of Britain’s most iconic stately homes, Alnwick Castle. The Duke and Duchess of Northumberland welcomed Johnny Strange into their home to entertain them and a selection of their close friends.
After admiring their vast antique sword collection, Johnny showed them his own collection and went on to demonstrate just what he is capable of doing with them by swallowing multiple blades.
As well as being regarded as re-dyfining the iconic castle look, Alnwick Castle also boasts an impressive list of films it has been featured in including; Downton Abbey, The Black Adder, Robin Hood, Star trek, The Fast Show and Harry Potter, the latter giving birth to it’s nickname “The Harry Potter Castle”.
