CHRISTMAS PARTY MAGICIAN

Hire a Christmas Party Magician

Christmas! Just the word conjures up the idea of magic. At least, I hope it does. We've all been to those a Christmas parties where you stand around chatting politely but mostly checking your watch until you can leave!

Your party shouldn't be like that! It should be a celebration of the hard work you've put in throughout the year and the successes you've achieved. It's a chance to unwind. And that only happens when your guests are excited to be there!

Hiring a Christmas party magician for your end of year celebration is a great idea. This is a time to get together with friends and enjoy being in their company.

So, boycott that boring atmosphere, and instead give your guests something to talk about, something to remember and something to carry on long after the final mince pie. Hire Ed as your professional close up magician, and he'll bring the party to life with incredible close up magic, impossible mind reading and conversational comedy that you'll want to join in with.

Let's make this year's Christmas party, the best ever!

Ed was totally amazing! He performed close up magic and an after dinner show at our Christmas party and we haven’t stopped talking about him. The best we have ever hired!

I arranged for Ed to provide entertainment at our daughter’s wedding. Absolutely spot on. He made sure he engaged with every table, and the constant howls of surprise and delight made for a really great atmosphere after the main dining. Everyone really enjoyed it and said what a fantastic addition to the whole event it was. Thanks, Ed !

Just hired Ed for a family party in Nantwich and he was awesome! I was very clear about what I wanted at the event and Ed delivered. Entertaining the little ones with balloon modelling and magic (sorry Ed - didn't think the balloon requests would ever end at one point!) and then walking around performing table magic for all the other guests. Feedback has been brilliant, with everyone impressed with the magic and feeling like they'd been entertained with some amazing tricks! And in terms of booking Ed - easy to communicate with, friendly, punctual and very accommodating. It was a great night, everyone had fun. Thanks Ed!!

TABLE MAGIC

My table to table close up magic engages guests, and makes sure everyone gets to be part of the fun. And if you're having a larger Christmas Party, I can even source multiple expert close up magicians from my list of industry contacts.

WALKAROUND MAGIC

Walkaround entertainment is the best way to get your Christmas Party started. I'll welcome guests with interactive close up magic and mind reading. Of course, all performed with the right level of professionalism and friendliness.

What's the difference between a table magician and a walkaround entertainer?

Both of these forms of magic are close up magic - the only difference is the setting for the magic.

  • Table magicians visit each table during the courses of a meal and perform to the whole group. It's a great way to entertain guests during dinner and get people laughing and having fun at the table.
  • Walkaround entertainers interact with guests while they are standing. Usually this is during the welcome while guests are getting a drink. This is a great idea, especially if you are not having a formal sit down meal.

Three reasons to hire a Christmas party magician

Boycott Boring!

Don't let this year's party be a yawn-fest! Instead, just everyone laughing together, and being totally amazed by incredible, impossible magic!

Flexible Performance

Unlike some static entertainments, close up magic is versatile enough to adapt to your event, whatever your plans may be.

Magic of Christmas!

It's that time of year, right!? Christmas is the perfect time to enjoy something extra special with friends, family or colleagues.

CHRISTMAS PARTY MAGICIAN REVIEWS

Ed was totally amazing! He performed close up magic and an after dinner cabaret show at our Christmas party and we haven’t stopped talking about him. We all thought he was the best we have ever hired!

Abigail Clayton Hart, DMT Group, Derby

Thanks for the performance you gave at our Christmas lunch at Chase Golf Club. Everyone enjoyed the fun. It was great that you were able to involve everyone without being too pushy. You are definitely on our list for future events!

John Caine, Penkridge

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

Eric Dale, Staffordshire

Quick tip: The best close up magicians interact with guests and make them feel part of the whole experience. That's what I do! I perform in a very relaxed, conversational way. It's sociable, approachable and above all incredible fun to be a part of. (Just take a look at some of the photos below!)

CLOSE UP MAGICIAN AND CABARET SHOW

Christmas Party Case Study

Throughout December I'm very busy performing as a Christmas party magician for both private parties, office parties, and corporate events. Each year I perform at roughly 30 Christmas parties across the UK. These can be either small intimate parties for families or small work teams to large corporate events for companies such as JCB, Selfridges, Sainsbury's, Fujifilm, and for military events for the RAF and Army.

Most of my work is for close up magic, as described above. This is especially true in my work as a Christmas party magician. However in, I'm also a very accomplished stage magician and love performing to larger groups.

In 2018, I performed for a Christmas party in London where I provided both close up magic and a cabaret show. This wasn't my full stage show, but rather a 20 minute performance to the whole group. No raised stage was required. We simply clinked a glass to gather everyone's attention. I've performed this option a few times, as it's a great way to round of my section of entertainment before the disco, band or other Christmas party entertainment kicks off.

I should mention that while I do perform in London a few times a year, most of the events I perform at are in Staffordshire, Birmingham and Nottingham.

Anyway, after a few months after the event, I received this fantastic feedback, and yes, a booking for their next Christmas party!

Ed is hands down THE BEST magician we’ve hired. He provided table magic and a short cabaret show at our Christmas event and we’re still talking about him today. It’s April, and I’m about to book him again for this year. For anyone reading this and thinking about hiring any other magician. Don’t! Ed is the guy you need!
