What’s been happening

Just an update as I am aware the blog hasn’t been updated for a while, and I don’t want you to think I have dropped off the face of the planet! In fact, things have been pretty crazy for the last few months. In just the past few weeks I have been to Luxembourg for

Christmas party time

This year will be my thirteenth in a row attending office Christmas parties! I think I must have attended more than 200 of them in my capacity as a close-up magician for hire. To be honest, some of them have been horrific. A free bar plus a large number of party poppers does not often

Some more wedding references

Here’s a very kind reference from a wedding I did in Weston Super Mare recently. Dear Rob, Thank you once again for your starring contribution to our wedding day. Your show was a magical occasion that everyone present will remember fondly (and with amazement!) for many years to come. On your wedding day, of all

Summer wedding season

The summer wedding season is in full swing! Here’s a nice email that I had yesterday following a wedding at Tortworth Court in South Gloucestershire: Myself and Matt would just like to say a HUGE thank you to you for your performance at our wedding on 27th July. You were absolutely INCREDIBLE!! We were so

I spent some of the drive home thinking about how to turn the fact I had performed four weddings into some kind of “four weddings and a …” type headline, but I drew a blank. Clearwell Castle is

Magician Royal Wootton Bassett

On Saturday I attended my third wedding in three days at the Marsh Farm Hotel in Royal Wootton Bassett. I have performed close up magic in Royal Wootton Bassett several times before (including when it was just plain old Wootton Bassett!) and it has always been in the pleasant surroundings of the Marsh Farm Hotel.

Southampton Magician

My second event of the Easter weekend – a trip down to Southampton to the New Place Hotel at Shirrell Heath near to Southampton for a wedding. The couple saw me at a company dinner last year some time and very kindly invited me to perform on their big day. I have been travelling down

Magician Leamington Spa

Today was the first day of a busy Easter weekend with a trip up to Wethele Manor in Leamington Spa. Eve & George the bride and groom had been recommended to me by a friend a while ago. The weather has been rather cold of late so all the guests were crammed into the bar

Magician videos

A collection of some videos of me performing! Some are professionally shot, some are not. They should give you an idea of my style and the sort of tricks that I do though. This blog makes the videos a bit smaller than I would like but you can click through and watch them on YouTube

Magician at Warwick University

Last night I was booked for an event at Warwick University (in Coventry – bit confusing!) The booking was as exclusively as a pickpocket and I had a great time. I occasionally perform at an event purely pickpocketing but not that often. I was able to steal watches, a couple of ties, several wallets and
