Close-up magic is the perfect entertainment – whatever your party. Let me mingle with your guests and leave them speechless and aghast with a tailored selection of jaw-dropping tricks.

As well as countless Christmas parties, I’ve performed at thousands of 18th, 21st, and 40th birthday (and all the numbers in between). Even a 90th! That’s the best thing about magic… it’s adaptable to any situation and any age group.

And if it’s a family get-together with guests that span the generations, I can adapt the tricks to different groups – so no one is ever left out.


So if you want to host a party to remember, invest in a party magician that can get your celebration started. You can trust me to create an atmosphere where everyone is having so much fun – they won’t want the party to end.

Do you own or manage a restaurant, bar, or café? Are you looking for an easy way to draw customers back again and again? If so, a close-up magician can create the atmosphere and the buzz that makes your restaurant the only place to go. It’s a real crowd puller.

But not only that… because your customers will be so impressed, they’ll fuel the word-of-mouth train too, which could get your bookings through the roof!

My style of close-up magic and witty banter is perfect for keeping customers entertained whilst waiting for their meal. It’s the ideal way to ease frustration during long wait times and can stimulate new conversations (and laughter) between customers. In turn, you get more happy customers (and more glowing reviews).

What’s more, if you have a space you hire out for parties, having a magician you can call upon makes it easier than ever to entertain large groups. Kaboom!

How will you draw the crowds at your next exhibition or event? You’ll find it easier to break the ice with a close-up magician (and professional socialiser) on your team. So let me woo the masses with jaw-dropping magic and awesome tricks that will leave people wondering HOW?

I promise, a professional magician creates far more crowd interest than a free pen! And the more footfall you generate, the better the results for your company.

You can use close-up magic in so many ways. For example, it can maintain people’s interest whilst your product or service is being demonstrated. It can keep potential customers at your stand longer and by breaking the ice, it makes meaningful conversations easier to start.

Best of all, I can tailor my performance so it perfectly supports your exhibition objectives. Ready to chat?
