Your Wedding’s Best-Kept Secret: Close-Up Chris

Weddings can be a blast, but let’s face it, they can also be…well, a bit ‘same old’. Fear not, dear couples of Sheffield! I’m here to save your big day from the clutches of boredom.
As a seasoned magician (nope, not the rabbit-out-of-a-hat kind), I’m an expert at turning those dreaded lulls into the highlight of the evening. Drinks reception? More like magic reception! Evening party? Let’s call it the ‘Enchanted Soiree’.

And did I mention the photo ops? Your photographer will thank you (and so will your Instagram followers). Full list of amazing benefits here.

So, why settle for the same old when you can have the extraordinary? Give your guests something to rave about – hire Close-Up Chris, and let’s make some magic!
(And by ‘magic’, I mean ‘unforgettable wedding memories’, not ‘pull a coin from behind your ear’ stuff. I’m classy like that.)

Let’s add some sparkle to your next event with Close-Up Magic – a sure-fire way to astonish your team, amaze potential clients, or simply jazz up the annual Christmas party. It’s the ultimate icebreaker!

With an extensive portfolio of events and a diverse range of audiences, I’ve seen it all and done it all. Rain or shine, boardroom or ballroom, I’m your man.

Hosting a larger event? No problem. Over the years, I’ve built a network of top-notch Professional Magicians who are ready to jump in and help spread the magic wider.

Celebrate Your Milestone with a Sprinkle of Magic

Party coming up? Oh, how I love a good shindig! If you’re marking a milestone and need some entertainment, send me an invite! I’ll keep your guests on their toes with magic tricks that’ll make them blurt out “OMG’s”, “WTF’s”, and maybe even some words we can’t publish here!

Sure, you could go with a Mix and Mingle magic for your house party but why settle for ordinary when you can have extraordinary? Let me introduce you to the ‘Room of Mystery’ (details on this page). It’s the most AMAZING way to ensure your guests remember the party long after the effects of those Amaretto Sours have faded.

And if that’s not enough, I’ve got another trick up my sleeve – the “Close-Up Corner” format. It’s the ABSOLUTE BEST way to use a close-up magician.

Presenting magic in this way helps solve those oh-so-common party problems: deafening music, mood lighting that makes it impossible to see, and those guests who always interrupt at the wrong moment. Plus, it brings out the absolute best in your magician and audience – win-win!

Sheffield Magician Prices:

First things first, if you’re hunting for a bargain basement magician, I’m not your guy! I get it – everyone has a budget. But if yours is on the lean side, my advice? Start a piggy bank.

Typically, a top-notch Sheffield Close-up Magician will set you back at least £500. But remember, this isn’t a fixed-price menu. Factors like the date of the event and location can stir the pot.

Received a quote that’s significantly less than £500? Well, make sure to check for recent reviews. If there’s none in sight, that should be enough to set off your Spidey senses!

Unforgettable Magic for Sheffield Events: Because ‘Average’ is Overrated!

Hosting a wedding in Sheffield that needs to outshine the last royal one? Throwing a party in Meadow Head that’s aiming to put all past shindigs to shame? Or maybe you’re orchestrating a corporate event in South Yorkshire that seeks to redefine ‘outstanding’? Whatever your event, I’ve got the magic to make it not just memorable, but downright epic.

Remember, no two events are identical – so I encourage you to reach out and let’s chat about how I can transform your occasion from ‘pretty good’ to ‘absolutely spectacular’.

And don’t worry, with two decades of professional experience, you’re in hands safer than a bank vault. And way more fun!

What kind of tricks do you perform?

We’re talking a few tricks with playing cards, coin tricks and sleight of hand magic that will need St Johns on standby, just in case.

But here’s the thing. In my line of work, it’s not just about the trick itself. It’s like buying a sandwich – sure, the bread is important, but it’s the filling that really makes it delicious. The real magic lies in the entertainment that’s packed around the tricks, much like the stuffing in your Christmas turkey.

Now, about my performing style. Picture this – a cocktail of comedy and magic that’s been stirred, not shaken. It’s like a stand-up routine that decided to crash a magic show. It’s generously peppered with ‘LOLs’, liberally seasoned with irony, and garnished with a healthy sprig of self-deprecation.

But that’s not all. It’s also twinned with some mind-boggling mind-reading and even some light-fingered pickpocketing – all in good fun, of course. The result? Your guests won’t just be laughing so hard they’ll forget their monthly mortgage payments, they’ll be too busy wondering how I managed to pull off those tricks without them noticing!

You any good?

Am I any good? Well, let me put it this way – if magic were an Olympic sport, I’d be on the podium. But hey, in a world where self-promotion is as common as a rabbit in a magician’s hat, it’s only fair you question my claim of being Sheffield’s only world-class magician.

So, rather than expect you to take my word for it (charmingly persuasive though it may be), why not peruse my collection of magic performance reviews? They’re a smorgasbord of superlatives and gushing praise. And did someone mention that I’m currently holding court at the number one spot in the UK? Oh wait, that was me.

So, to answer your question, yes, I’m rather splendid at what I do. But don’t just take my word for it, dive into those reviews and judge for yourself. After all, the proof of the pudding is in the reading!

What type of events would you be perfect for?

My amazing magic performances are perfect for:

  • Birthday parties (who doesn’t want a sprinkle of magic on their special day?)
  • Wedding receptions (making the magical day even more enchanting)
  • Private events (because every gathering could use a touch of the extraordinary)
  • Evening receptions (to keep the night alive with wonder)
  • Tradeshows (a little magic goes a long way in leaving a lasting impression)
  • Networking events (nothing breaks the ice like a mind-boggling trick or two)
  • Charity events (adding a touch of magic to a noble cause)
  • Office Party – break the ice at those stiff-neck parties!

So, whether it’s a personal celebration or a professional gathering, my magic can adapt faster than a chameleon in a rainbow. It’s just the multi-tool your event needs to go from good to unforgettable!

Are you expensive?

Short answer is Yes.

Well, let’s just say my prices aren’t what you’d find at a car boot sale. I mean, becoming a leading corporate magician isn’t exactly a piece of cake (though I’ve eaten plenty of those at birthday parties). In fact, any self-respecting Sheffield magician will tell you it’s more like trying to climb Mount Everest in flip-flops.

You can only pull so many coins from behind your cat’s ear before you realise the real challenge lies beyond your living room. Each audience is its own unique beast, whether it’s a bunch of kids hopped up on birthday cake or corporate folks pretending they’re not impressed. And performing for small groups? That’s more nerve-wracking than a tightrope walk over a crocodile pit.

Basically, I’ve devoted my life to mastering this high-stakes game of captivating attention and defying logic. And while my cat may work for tuna, I, unfortunately, require actual currency. So yes, my magical prowess does come with a price tag. But hey, compared to the cost of a lifetime of therapy after hiring a bad magician, I’d say I’m a pretty good deal!

What are the benefits of hiring a professional magician?

Ah, a question that doesn’t make my eyes glaze over – refreshing! Now, let’s cut to the chase. You see hiring a professional magician is much more than sleight of hand and a few card tricks. Here’s what you’re really investing when hiring a great magician

  1. Ageless Entertainment: Magic isn’t picky about age. From toddlers to grandmas, it’s like a universal remote for amusement – works on everyone.
  2. Memorable Moments: Your event will be remembered as ‘the one with the awesome magician’, not ‘the one where Dave from accounting sang karaoke’.
  3. Conversation Starters: Trust me, your guests will have plenty to talk about besides the weather and the latest office gossip.
  4. Photo Ops: Nothing says ‘best wedding breakfast ever’ like photos of your guests gasping at a mind-boggling trick. Selfie sticks at the ready!
  5. Lull-Busters: Got a delay in the kitchen? No problem! I’ll keep the crowd so entertained they won’t even notice their stomachs growling.

So, hiring a magician is kind of like hiring a multitasking entertainment machine. And unlike that karaoke machine you rented once, we won’t make your ears bleed.
