Magic at the Christmas Tree Party
On 7 January employees and their children were invited to a Christmas tree party at Maritime Partner’s headquarters at Breivika in Ålesund. 55 adults and children were there, and the party began in the canteen where casserole and hot dogs were served, followed by cake for dessert.
After food came entertainment, from the two young conjurers Torgeir and Frank Odin. Torgeir Rørvik and Frank Odin Grønvik (born 1998) from Ålesund took part in TV2’s ’Norske Talenter’ (similar to Britain’s got talent) in 2014, came through auditions, but were eliminated at the judges’ selection stage. According to their website they have been conjuring since 2009, but began more professionally in 2011. See more on www.magikerne.com.
Well satisfied with food and conjuring, everyone then went down to the production hall to see the boats under construction. There guests could sit in the boats, and there was singing and a procession around a big christmas tree in the workshop, with piano accompaniment by design manager Tore Fiskerstrand. Dimmed lights announced the big finale – Father Christmas riding in on a boat laden with presents for all the children.
