What days and times do you work?

When should I book you for a magic performance?


Normally about 6 weeks before your event, but you can book my services as far ahead as you like, and sometimes I am able to make last minute bookings if you've been let down.




How many people can you perform for?


There really is no limit to the number of people I can perform my magic to. It's just a case of working out what form of magic show will give you and your guests the most memorable experience.




How far are you willing to travel?


I regularly travel to venues all over the UK, and overseas. Whilst most of my performance is visual, audiences benefit most if they are English speaking.

Complete my enquiry form, tell me your location, and I'll work out the best deal I can including my costs.




Can you provide magic with a theme for my event?


Yes - I'm often asked to build my magic performance to follow a particular theme. Whether it's a Wedding, Halloween, Christmas or New Years Eve party or any other occassion, just let me know via my enquiry form what you're thinking of.




What kind of magic do you perform?


I perform both close-up and stage magic using a wide variety of items, some prepared, some impromtu with whatever objects are to hand like napkins, salt and cutlery. Close-up magic means just that, it's magic that you just won't believe performed right in front of your eyes. My award-winning cabaret show is for all ages and features card magic, money magic, rope magic, cup and ball and a mind blowing finale! You can see some examples on my video showreel




What is the booking process?


Let me know the time, date, location, number of people and nature of your event. Complete the enquiry form here. I answer all forms of communication as quickly as possible and always within 24 hours.




How long can you perform for?


Around 2 or 3 hours is normal, but please don't feel limited by that. I have performed close-up magic for up to five hours, but it's totally dependant on you and how long you require me to perform for. My stage shows last to 45-60 minutes.




How do I know you're a good magician?


Take a moment to review my video channel and the genuine reviews from real clients who have kindly taken the time to write to me. I am a member of The Magic Circle. To join this world renowned organisation your skills as a magician have to be exceptional enough to pass a rigorous audition by professional experts.




What types of events do you perform at?


More or less any event within reason... Magic is ideal for: Wedding receptions and Anniversary celebrations Corporate functions such as product launches and motivational events Charity fund raisers Private parties such as birthdays, christenings, halloween parties, Get togethers at Christmas and New Year's Eve. I also perform in commercial premises such as: Restaurants, Hotels, Theatres, Shops, Airports and Railway Stations.




Do I have to pay a deposit when I book you?


If you book 3-6 months in advance, I take a 25% deposit. If you book over 6 months in advance, I take a 50% deposit.




What if I have to cancel your booking?


Very rarely there may be reasons why I have to cancel a booking such as illness or accident. If I have to cancel your booking, it will be my responsibility to arrange another magician in my place. If one cannot be found, any and all payment made up to the point of cancellation will be returned.




Can you make my wife disappear?


Ahhhh, the most frequently asked question of all! Sorry, but if you're serious then you might want to think about a lawyer.




How did you do that?


Very well, thank you.
