Close up magicians are a popular entertainment option for many events. The best, know instinctively how to get the most from your guests, combining incredible magic effects, with upbeat conversational comedy and a down to earth manner. Imagine your event filling with comments like:
"Do that again!"
or "You've got to show that one to my friend!"
That's what I often hear when I'm hired to perform close up magic.
I've performed as a close up magician at all of the below event types, but if you've got a different idea then please get in touch. Some of the best events I've done have been the ones where someone has come to me with their ideas and we've worked together to make it a reality. After all, as a magician, I do the impossible everyday!
Student balls / proms
Private dinner parties
Family get togethers
Late night bar magic

WHEN TO HIRE A STAGE MAGICIAN IN BIRMINGHAM
My stage magic is the perfect way to entertain larger groups. My spectacular show combining incredible magic and impossible mind reading can entertain from 50 to 500 guests, and for between 20 and 50 minutes. It's the perfect choice for after dinner entertainment.
So that's what I do, but why should you consider hiring me over any other magician. Simply put, while performing to three or four people is something that most magicians can manage, holding the attention of 200 + people, is a skill that only a few magicians in the country can do.
I'm one of those who has spent time building up those skills. I've been described as an expert stage performer, but really the secret to performing on stage comes down to one thing. It's confidence. A nervous performer makes the audience feel awkward too.
Fortunately I've performed on stages across the whole of the UK. In Birmingham, I've performed in store on stages for both Selfridges in the Bull Ring and Harvey Nicholls in the Mailbox (for three years running), as well as at the Hippodrome Theatre.

BIRMINGHAM MAGICIAN REVIEWS
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 not hesitate to recommend Ed to anyone looking for a solid professional magician.
Ian Gandley, Birmingham
Ed’s friendly and outgoing manner got everyone interacting and made the first part of the party fly by. I was not the only one to comment, how on earth did he do that!? We would definitely recommend Ed and book him again. It was the perfect entertainment for our party
Shelly Spooner, EffecTech, Birmingham
From the moment we contacted Ed he was extremely professional and helped us sort out the booking easily. Ed arrived 15 minutes before he was due to perform and started a few minutes before. This was really appreciated. All of our guests were amazed and many said he was the best part of the evening.

BIRMINGHAM MILITARY EVENTS MAGICIAN
Birmingham close up magician case study
As a Birmingham magician, I get to perform at lots of events across the city, but this was one that really stood out to me. I performed alongside another Birmingham close up magician at a large military black tie ball. Hiring multiple magicians is a popular choice for larger events, and I can even help organise that on your behalf. I am well connected within the magic industry and can help to put together a team of excellent professional performers.
Back to this event. This was a military ball to celebrate recent achievements including many who had recently passed out.
We began by entertaining guests as they arrived for a welcome drink, and then later entertained with table to table magic during dinner. Later there was a live band, and a large scalextrix track and other games for guests to play on. I didn't organise the band, but as part of my service, I did recommend the other games company to my client.
This all took in the legends lounge at Birmingham City Football Stadium, St. Andrew's. All of the magicians team got great reactions to our entertainment, with lots of laughs, gasps and enjoyment from everyone there.
Even better was that many of those great moments were captured by their event photographer. Just take a look at the client review and some of the pictures below.
Ed is a fantastic magician. Not only was his magic incredible, he sorted out all the fine details, and went over and above for our guests. We would definitely use his service again and would recommend to a friend.

We hired Ed for our corporate 60th birthday celebration. He did a great job at capturing the audience’s attention and his tricks were in a word - brilliant. Great communication prior to the event. Super friendly, and we would recommend!!

Ed was absolutely fantastic and created fantastic memories for our ten year wedding anniversary. He even provided a spur of the moment performance to the whole group, which I didn't expect. Ed goes the extra mile and is flexible to work with. I would highly recommend him.
