John MacMillan, CEO of the Eric Liddell Center, said, “We are extremely honored that Drew is giving us the opportunity to raise funds for our dementia day care and other care services we offer.

“Drew has entertained members of the royal family, international sports stars, astronauts and pop music icons, as well as movie and television stars, and I am delighted to have him at the center.

The 66-year-old, who has performed as far as Africa, Russia and the Caribbean, was also a hit as The Interrogator on Channel 5’s Trisha Goddard Show and was a regular guest on STV’s The Hour. He was also the subject of the four-part BBC series School for Genius.

He says, “I take great pleasure in performing entertainment that goes on in the heart and in the head. It’s gentle, carefree, fun, and fascinating. But the best part is that audiences can regain nostalgic amazement.

“I love this moment when the viewer feels a childlike amazement, and it shows in his face. It’s magic for adults. “

McAdam, who was a reviewer for the Evening News for a while, was also honored by the Heriot-Watt Magic Society, which named its annual award, the McAdam Award, after him.

The Eric Liddell Center provides person-centered day care to 70 clients with a diagnosis of dementia weekly by a dedicated team of highly qualified staff and experienced, experienced volunteers who aim to reduce social isolation and promote independence. Founded in 1980, the center was renamed in 1992 in memory of 1924 Olympic 400-meter gold medalist Eric Liddell, who was the main character in the hugely successful film Chariots of Fire.

Fundraiser tickets cost £ 19.50 and include a pre-show buffet and a glass of wine or soft drink. They can be purchased here through Eventbrite.
