CLOSE UP MAGICIAN

Have you ever seen someone so excited they crumble to pieces? I have! Close up magic has that sort of effect on people. You see, it's one thing to watch magic on TV, it's another thing entirely to be part of it!

"Funny, captivating, affable and absolutely fantastic at mesmerising people with his skills. I was absolutely delighted with everything Ed did for our guests."

He was very professional before the event and everyone was thoroughly entertained by his close magic and the larger scale audience participation tricks.

We invited Ed to join us at our wedding reception to entertain our guests during / after the meal. Lots of guests were chatting about his tricks the next day. We loved the one he did for us and have absolutely no idea how he managed it! Ed is relaxed but professional, friendly and fun. Thank you for sprinkling some magic on our day Rach & Mick

Ed was fabulous, what a fantastic magic show this was the perfect entertainment for my 50th Birthday and left us scratching our heads on how he did some of the tricks as we couldn’t work it out, and we were really impressed, and still talking about it later into the night and after my birthday too. I would definitely recommend and book Ed again and he was very professional, fabulous magic tricks and great communication and early to the event to prepare. I won’t mention what tricks he did as I won’t spoil the surprise but we all loved it. Thanks Ed 🤩🥰👍

I saw Ed last weekend he was booked for a family wedding. Nearly a week later and I’m still speechless, he was amazing best magician I’ve ever seen! He caters to all age groups, so entertaining.

Really friendly magician 👍🏾

Hiring a close up magician is without doubt one of the best decisions you can make for your event.

You probably don't want a boring party where everyone politely skirts around a few standard topics of small talk. Instead, let's kick it up a gear. Just imagine people spontaneously bursting into laughter, calling their friends over because "you just HAVE to see this!" and leaving with a collection of stories they'll be telling for years to come.

My slick sleight of hand magic with cards, coins and other objects, has to be seen to be believed. Not only that, but my performances bring people together. It breaks the ice, sparks conversations and helps your guests to feel like they are a part of something incredible. My performances are lively, upbeat, conversational, and above all fun.

You don't want to miss it!

CLOSE UP MAGICIAN REVIEWS

I just hired Ed Sumner as a close up table magician for the second time, which speaks highly of how much we appreciated his entertainment. He was amusing, entertaining and his magic was of the highest order! Given his experience and professional skills I would definitely employ him again.

I know I speak for both of us when I say that we would have no problem recommending your act to anyone. Our thanks to you for helping us to make our wedding day special and a day that we shall both remember, for all the right reasons. Typical comments were; 'It was amazing to see magic performed so close up and so well!'

John and Cheryl Thomas, Birmingham

I hired Ed for my hen do, and everyone was so impressed that the decision to hire him for my wedding was an easy one. Ed is so funny and his close up magic is so amazing. I was told by several guests that Ed had been their favourite part of the evening. Thank you for being part of our special day and making everyone smile and laugh.
