MANCHESTER MAGICIAN REVIEWS

We hired Ed for our wedding and for my wife’s birthday! Both times, Ed surprised our guests with new and inventive magic that our guests talking about him long after he had left.

Mario & Romana Flores, Manchester

Ed was a surprise guest at my husband’s recent party, and he went down a storm with everyone. We're still talking about the night. One more thing, Ed is pleasant and friendly and was a dream to deal with, keeping me informed of everything throughout.

Christina Jenkins, Manchester

Funny, engaging, likeable. Ed hosted our awards night and made sure the event had the right amount of pace adding in magic and comedy throughout. He included people without embarrassing them, and I am confident everyone had a great time! Highly recommended.

Organising a large event such as an awards night, a fundraiser or some other corporate event can be a difficult task. Let me help you with one piece of advice. A professional magician can make your life a whole lot easier. Even if you don't go on to hire me, I still stand by that statement.

Magic can fit into a variety of times during your event. Close up magic is perfect to welcome guests and to spark conversations that aren't about work. After all this is a social event, right?

Close up magic is a wonderful choice as each small group gets their own personal performance of impossible magic. It's the type of things you might have on seen on TV, but this time it's live!

Stage magic on the other hand is a large scale performance. This can be 20 - 50 minutes of your schedule, and is great to entertain a large audience, and really add the wow factor to your evening. The great news is that I'm experienced as both a close up and stage magician.

Every wedding needs entertainment, and you won't go far wrong by hiring a professional close up magician. A professional magician knows how to bring the best out of your guests.

I know that in my case, my routines are designed to put your guests at ease. My performances are upbeat and lively, but also approachable and conversational. It's a winning mix which means people want to be involved with all of the fun. Just imagine your guests saying, "No way!" and "Do that again!" after they've seen some incredible magic. That's what I bring to your wedding. Incredible entertainment that gets people excited about being there, and most of all in the party mood.

After all a wedding is a celebration and you don't want people just waiting around!
