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!!

CLOSE UP MAGIC

Whether it's performed in a mix and mingle style or at guests tables, close up magic is the best way to bring a party to life. People love to laugh, and that's really what I do with my magic! I bring out the best in people through with a lively, upbeat performance.

GROUP PERFORMANCE

An alternative or addition to close up magic is a performance to the whole group. This is a great way to bring everyone together. This can also work well for smaller groups where I perform my parlour show either in a private dining room, or in the comfort of your home.

PARTY MAGICIAN REVIEWS

Thank you for making my dad’s party an occasion to remember forever, it meant so much to all of the family. The performance was fantastic and my Dad is still talking about it! Thank you for being so friendly, accommodating and professional, it has been a pleasure to deal with you!

Kate Cree, Oswestry

Funny, captivating, affable and absolutely fantastic at mesmerising people with his skills. I was absolutely delighted with everything Ed did for our guests. I would highly recommend Ed to others.

Ian Gandley, Birmingham

Ed was excellent. He engaged the group well, not only with the magic but with his humour and personality. The magic was of a superb standard and he perfectly included everyone in his act. A perfect surprise for my partner and money well spent.

Joe Christopher, Staffordshire

Quick tip: Experience counts for a lot when hiring a party magician. Don't just book the cheapest. A professional not only knows how to perform the tricks, they know instinctively how to bring out the best in people.

Alice in Wonderland themed family party

Party magician case study

Why should you hire a magician for your party?

Well, for me, the answer is simple! A professional close up magician knows not only how to perform incredible magic, but also how to interact with people and bring your event to life. At least that's how I perform.

Isn't that what a party is about? Having an amazing time with those closest to you.

Just imagine everyone laughing together, screaming, "no way!" and "do that again!" and ultimately having an unforgettable in each other's company.

That was the brief for this family party with an Alice in Wonderland theme - a surprisingly popular party theme, and one where magic fits in perfectly. Just think of The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, the Cheshire Cat that slowly disappears, and, of course, all those flying playing cards in the final scene.

And these quotes.

“I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.”

“Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.”

Don't those remind you of ... well ... magic!

At this party, I performed mix and mingle close up magic to both the children and the adults, followed by a mini show performance to the whole group.

Afterwards, I received this photo (which is admittedly, not the best quality but gives you a flavour of the party), and this high praise from the client...

The way you were able to entertain adults, children, individually or as one whole group was just brilliant, and we were all amazed that we couldn’t figure it out. Everyone has said its a party they will talk about for years to come!
