He was very professional before the event and everyone was thoroughly entertained by his close magic and the larger scale audience participation tricks.

We invited Ed to join us at our wedding reception to entertain our guests during / after the meal. Lots of guests were chatting about his tricks the next day. We loved the one he did for us and have absolutely no idea how he managed it! Ed is relaxed but professional, friendly and fun. Thank you for sprinkling some magic on our day Rach & Mick

Ed was fabulous, what a fantastic magic show this was the perfect entertainment for my 50th Birthday and left us scratching our heads on how he did some of the tricks as we couldn’t work it out, and we were really impressed, and still talking about it later into the night and after my birthday too. I would definitely recommend and book Ed again and he was very professional, fabulous magic tricks and great communication and early to the event to prepare. I won’t mention what tricks he did as I won’t spoil the surprise but we all loved it. Thanks Ed 🤩🥰👍

I saw Ed last weekend he was booked for a family wedding. Nearly a week later and I’m still speechless, he was amazing best magician I’ve ever seen! He caters to all age groups, so entertaining.

Ed is a great magician who ensures he tailors the experiences appropriately to his guests. He is super friendly and very talented at what he does. We had great feedback from guests and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a magician for any event.

We organised for Ed to attend our AGM to keep the meeting exciting and different from what we've done previously. Ed performed magic on a one to one basis, group interactions and to the whole audience. All of these interactions were amazing, and quite frankly mind blowing as to what we were seeing. This has left us all talking about 'How did Ed do that!?' and definitely one we'll remember and use in the future again!

Ed's magic went down a storm at our recent wedding. We have had several guests ask where we found him from and we would definitely recommend him for others looking for a unique addition to their reception.

Hiring a close up magic in Warwickshire will bring your event to life. There are a variety of performance styles that all fall under the category of close up magic. First up, there's walkaround magic - perfect to welcome guests as they stand with a drink in hand, or plate of food. Next there's table magic. Table magicians allow each group to be a part of their own personal show. This is great between the courses of a meal. Finally, there's parlour magic. This is an exclusive show for a small group of usually about 20 to 50 guests. It often takes place in the comfort of your own home or a private dining room.

Read more about close up magic here, or reach out to me for a quick chat about the specifics of your event.

Regardless of which option is best for you, my close-up magic will create a fun lively atmosphere and make sure your party is the one to be at! I'll create the stories, you'll be sharing for years to come.

My cabaret show is the perfect way to unite guests with a shared experience and WOW them with a unique show combining the best of magic, mind reading and comedy. Hiring a cabaret magician is perfect as after dinner entertainment. This is a popular choice for corporate events such as awards nights, conferences and fundraising events.

My cabaret stage show is sometimes combined with my close up magic, but can also be a stand alone performance of 20 to 50 minutes.

Another option is that I can host or present your whole event. As the events host, I will make all the announcements and introductions and make sure your event runs to time. All the while, weaving in my incredible magic throughout.

Organising entertainment can sometimes seem complex. As there's a few options there, why not get in touch for more information about what would be the best choice for your event.

Hiring a magician is a fantastic choice for a wedding. A close up magician can energise your day during a time when otherwise they might just be waiting around. And even if they have to wait around, you don't want the guests to feel as if they are.

Not only that but the lively, upbeat, contemporary form of magic that I perform is a lot of fun to be a part of. It will be one of the talking points of the day, and something you'll look back on with great stories and memories. This is a celebration after all, right?
