Magician on London Overground for Olympic Entertainment

If you see a suited person with TfL badge on your London Overground asking for your card, the chances are it's not your Oyster Card he's interested in.  Magician Danny Hall performing with Stage Up has been taken on to entertain passengers throughout the London Olympic Games.

Up until August 11th 2012 he'll be on carriages and at at stations on the east end of the North London Line – Hackney Central, Homerton and Hackney Wick.

A spokesperson for London Overground said: "We’ve had great feedback from the passengers who are also Tweeting about it.”

Pick a card, any card, just not my Oyster Card

The Stage Up acts feature local, up-and-coming performers, who will play 30-minute acoustic slots on small areas of the platforms.
