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 !

Ed was the magician at our wedding and was fantastic. He was great with all our guests and did some amazing magic tricks. He was great at going around the room and entertaining everyone. Also, thank you for teaching our flower girl and page boy a magic trick, they loved it !

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!!

For our Anniversary Dinner, our president asked for a memorable, magical stage show, and that’s what we got! It was totally mystifying and just what we wanted. Ed was easy to deal with and professional from the first enquiry to the end of the show.

Hiring a close up magician for your event is a fantastic way to ensure all of your guests have a great time. A quality professional magician brings your event to life with incredible magic that your guests won't believe. And that's what I do. I combine contemporary sleight of hand magic, with lively conversational comedy to make sure your event is the best it can be. This isn't your grandad's card tricks. It's impressive, impossible magic and mind reading that has to be seen to believed!

Imagine people saying things like at your event:

"Wait, how did you do that?"
"You read my mind!"
and "That's not possible!"

As a quick reminder, hiring a close up magician is perfect for events such as:


awards nights


milestone birthday parties

wedding anniversaries

retirement parties

student balls / proms

house warming parties

family get togethers

I've has performed at all of the above and other types of events all across the West Midlands.

There's loads of great wedding venues across the West Midlands. Here are a few I've performed magic at recently:

Windmill Village Hotel, Coventry

Stonebridge Golf Club, Coventry

Mount Hotel, Wolverhampton

Hilton Hall Hotel, Wolverhampton

Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel

There are hundreds of weddings that take place across the West Midlands every day. Some will be days full of celebration and joy. Others, I'm sorry to say, will drag on! How do you make sure yours is in that first group? It's easy. Hiring entertainment for during the day is the way to go. And I don't just mean a band or a DJ for the evening.

Instead I mean during those lull periods where people are waiting around for the next thing. They are thinking, what's next? And you're not there to do any entertaining as you're having your photograph taken, or taking a moment for yourself in an otherwise hectic day. You don't have to hire a magician for your wedding. It could be some other form of entertainment.

A magician is a great choice though, as it's lively, and interactive. Well, that's how I perform magic. It's fast, upbeat and incredibly fun to be a part of.

There are very few magicians in the West Midlands with a professional stage magic show. I'm one of them. In fact, I specialise in this type of incredible magic performance. For the largest events or where you want to entertain a lot of people in a short amount of time, stage magic is the way to go.

I can also act as the events host and weave in magic throughout the evening, as well as making all of the announcements and introductions.

And for the very largest events, I can even help to source other close up magicians, or a team of stage performers. Whatever is required to make your event special, I can help.
