You want to throw a great party, but don’t know how to entertain your guests.
It’s hard to know what to do when you’re the host of a party. You don’t want it to be just another night where people stand around in small groups, not talking to each other.
Hire me – a private party magician! I’m an expert in getting people excited and engaged making your party an unforgettable evening that your guests will be talking about for weeks afterwards.
I’ve got a couple of cool formats for your house party too – The Room of Mystery and the Close-Up Corner. Two unique entertainment options to help get the party started!
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 £500+ 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 £500 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!

FAQ TO HIRE A MAGICIAN
WHY SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
Despite my youthful appearance, I bring a wealth of experience as a professional magician. I understand the pulse of any event and I’m quick to alleviate any concerns that my performance might be laden with clichés that often make adults cringe.
For me, it’s all about ensuring everyone has a fantastic time. My magic tricks are designed to incite laughter and provoke ‘OMG’ moments. This potent combination of amazing magic, hearty laughs, and high levels of engagement is what sets my act apart.
WHAT ARE ALL THE EVENTS WE COULD HIRE YOU FOR?
If you’re looking to hire a magician for the following, I’m your man:
After your wedding breakfast
A Corporate function
Hen and stag parties
ARE YOU INSURED?
Absolutely! I am a proud member of Equity, which not only affirms my status as a professional entertainer but also provides me with comprehensive public liability insurance cover up to £10 million. This ensures peace of mind for all involved, providing assurance that your guests’ valued possessions are safe and sound during my performance.
DO YOU PERFORM FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS?
My performances are laced with sophisticated humour, intricate card tricks, and mind-reading feats that might go over the heads of our younger spectators. Think of it like this: It’s akin to serving caviar at a kids’ birthday party – sure, it’s possible, but hot dogs and ice cream would probably be more appreciated. So, while I’m perfectly capable of entertaining all ages, I must admit, I do enjoy the subtleties and nuances an adult audience brings to the table.
My close-up isn’t suitable for children’s birthday parties but I do know plenty of great options if you’d like the wow factor for your little one’s big bash. Visit Magic Russ – he’s a great guy.
WHAT TYPE OF MAGIC TRICKS DO YOU PERFORM
I deliver a captivating blend of performances, featuring everything from mind reading and pickpocketing to deft sleight-of-hand tricks with cards, coins, rings, and more. However, my act isn’t just about the tricks – it’s about creating an engaging, fun-filled atmosphere. Sure, I have amazing tricks up my sleeve, but what truly sets me apart is my knack for banter that leaves audiences thoroughly entertained. That’s where the real magic lies!
DO YOU REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL SETUP OR EQUIPMENT FOR YOUR PERFORMANCE?
As a professional close-up magician, I possess the uncanny knack to pull out mesmerizing, nearly divine feats right from my jacket. Now, don’t let the term ‘close-up magic’ fool you into thinking it’s a one-trick pony. It’s as versatile as a Swiss Army knife – ready to spring into action at (almost) any given moment. And for those who crave a bit more zest in their entertainment, I’ve got my Close-Up Corner set up. But don’t worry, it’s like a self-cleaning oven – it requires absolutely zilch from you. Just sit back and let the magic unfold!
YOU ANY GOOD FOR CHRISTMAS PARTIES?
Oh, absolutely! I’m as much a staple at Christmas parties as awkward family photos and unidentifiable canapés. As a Christmas party magician, I bring all the mystery of Santa’s workshop and none of the elf labour issues.
Picture this, if you will: A hush falls over the room as I pull an entire Christmas tree – tastefully decorated, mind you – from my hat. Impossible, you say? Well, so is a portly man in a red suit delivering gifts to billions in one night, but here we are.
Let’s face it, the only thing more magical than the holiday season itself is a holiday season sprinkled with a dash of spellbinding magic tricks and mind-boggling illusions. And let’s not forget the wit! My performances are seasoned with a pinch of sarcasm, a dollop of self-deprecation and garnished with a sprig of wordplay.
So, am I any good for Christmas parties? Well, let’s just say that by the end of the night, even your grumpiest uncle/work colleague will be more dazzled than the lights on the tree, and your guests will remember this party long after the last of the fruitcake has finally been thrown out… sometime around July, probably.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK?
But on a serious note, if you’re digging my magical mojo, reach out to me sooner rather than later. My schedule fills up faster than a badger on a bypass – especially when it comes to weddings, which are often booked 12-18 months in advance. Despite having a team of spellbinding magicians at my disposal, there’s only one original – yours truly. So, if you’re in the market to hire a magician to keep your guests entertained and you want the cream de la cream, I’d recommend beating the clock.
