Corporate and Trade Show Magician

Corporate events need not be stuffy occasions – hire a great close up magician to entertain the troupes. Ideal for award nights, impressing new and existing clients or for novel entertainment for the Christmas party. Close up magic can be the perfect icebreaker!

With countless events under my belt, I know the drill! I’ve engaged with every type of audience so you’re safe hands.


For large events, I have teamed up with a fine selection of other professional magicians (local to Birmingham) who I can call upon to entertain the masses.

Recent venues I’ve performed at in and around Birmingham:



I’m often booked to perform my close up and table magic at the NEC, NIA and ICC for company parties and exhibitions.

 Party Magician

I’ve been told I’m quite the party animal! If you’re celebrating a milestone party, let’s hook up! I’ll entertain your guests with some slick magic – the type that produces “Oh my God’s”, “WTF’s” and other profanities!

Close up magic is an excellent choice for parties – in particular, house parties! Let me introduce to you the Room of Mystery (see this page). The most AWESOME format to guarantee memories long remembered after the cocktails have worn off!


I also have a great format called the Close-Up Corner. This is the BEST way to utilise a close-up magician.

Presenting the magic in this way helps eliminate some of the problems faced at parties: loud music, low light, interrupting guests’ conversations and really helps bring out the best in your magician and his audience!

Magician Prices


Firstly, if you’re looking for the cheapest, I’m not him! I understand everyone has a budget but if you’re limited on what you can spend, I suggest you save your pennies!

They say, you get what you pay for and this is certainly true. Searching for the cheapest magician may seem like a good idea but ultimately, it will be money wasted. There’s nothing worse than watching an act that isn’t slick and can’t deliver on entertaining your guests.


Expect to pay between £350-£600 for a quality close up magician in Birmingham. Other variables will increase this; time of year, location, additional hours required, type of event etc.


This isn’t a hard and fast rule though. There will be exceptions but can you afford to take a risk? If you have received a quote that is significantly lower than £350 for two hours, do a little homework; Check for videos and recent photos – are the audience having a great time? Next, check for recent reviews on third-party platforms such as Google and FreeIndex.

If you like what you see – then go for it!
