CHRISTMAS PARTY MAGICIAN

Christmas Party Close up magician

Christmas! Just the word conjures up the idea of magic. At least, I hope it does. We've all been to a Christmas party 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!

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.

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.

CHRISTMAS PARTY MAGICIAN OPTIONS

Table Magic vs Walkaround Entertainment?

A close up magician is the perfect form of entertainment for a Christmas Party but there are two performance styles to consider.

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. This is a popular option during December. I am often performing as a table magician in Birmingham, and across the UK at Corporate Christmas Parties.

Walkaround entertainers interact with guests, usually during the welcome while guests are getting a drink. This is also a great idea if you are not having a formal sit down meal. The best close up magicians interact with guests and make you 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 the photo below!)

CLOSE UP MAGICIAN AND CABARET SHOW

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.

Christmas Case Study

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 close up 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!
