The Magic Table!

The Easy Way to Enthral and Entertain your Guests at your Next Event,


You’re probably not out to win party planner of the year, but you do want the event you’re planning to go off with a bang.

And you know there’s A LOT riding on your decisions – especially when it comes to your choice of entertainment.

So whether you’re planning your dream wedding, a special birthday, an anniversary, or a corporate gig, I’m not surprised you’re feeling the pressure!

After all, not only do you want the day to run perfectly, but you want your guests to leave with lasting memories too.

And that’s why you’re looking for a quality Close Up Magician.

Experiences that stick

When you look back over your life, what are the memories that stand out?

Often it’s those events and experiences associated with an emotional high. Something happened that made you react strongly in some way – and the memory stuck.

It’s one of the reasons we tend to remember significant events.

But interestingly, an emotional high can make you remember something smaller too. For example, remember the last time you laughed so much you cried!

That’s why magic is such a good choice for a whole variety of events.

Now I’m not talking about cringeworthy cracker tricks or magic performed by a newcomer who gives the game away!

Instead, I’m talking about the kind of tricks that are jaw-droppingly, OMG, how-did-he-do-that – all wrapped up with a little bit of cheeky humour of course!

[The kind of magic I perform.]

When you experience a magic show like this, your guests are going to react in a strong way:


  • They’ll break into spontaneous laughter and massive smiles
  • They may feel shocked and surprised because they can’t believe their eyes
  • And they’ll most definitely feel good 🙂

What’s more, because magic draws people together in a shared experience, all those feelings are heightened.

It’s why it’s not uncommon for clients to tell me that their magic show was the highlight and most talked-about part of their event.

Do you want some of that?

But here’s the thing…

If you want to evoke these strong emotions in your guests, they have to participate in the magic show in the first place!

Obvious right?

But that’s the challenge of a big event with lots of people. You know what it’s like at weddings and birthdays, guests are happily chatting and catching up. And if it’s a corporate event, participants have lots of other distractions.

What’s more, some people can be reluctant participants!

It means not everyone is happy for their conversation to be interrupted by a mingling magician!

So if you want a kick-ass Close Up Magician, but you don’t want to disrupt your guests, I’ll happily bring my Magic Table.

Close-Up magician and the magic table


It’s the perfect compromise 🙂

The Magic Table (aka The Close-Up Corner) creates a whole new dynamic for your party.

I’ll draw your guests to a ‘spontaneous’ show. We can agree on the timings for these so they complement your event perfectly.

The Magic Table works like a magnet. Guests rock up, not the other way around. It means partygoers can enjoy the magic performance on their timescale.

There are other benefits too. For example:


  • We can choose the best position for the table – to avoid noise distractions and other interruptions
  • Your guests will be impressed and think you’ve paid A LOT more than you have for such a professional set-up 🙂
  • It’s completely portable – which means we can do shows in different places and at different times to cater for different groups of people


So if you want a Close Up Magician at your next event who can perform tricks over the Magic Table, get in touch.

We can create something special just for you – an experience that your guests will love and remember fondly.

And what’s in it for you?

Well, you’ll get all the praise for planning the party (or wedding) that everyone still talks about 🙂
