That time of year again - Christmas Party Magician

Posted on 9th Nov 2015 11:39:39

Hello everyone. Hope you are all well. Well autumn is definitely here. The leaves are falling down, the temperature is falling, Guy Fawkes Night has passed and most frighteningly of all the Christmas lights are now being switched on! They say it seems earlier each year and I agree!

With the plethora of adverts now being shown and shops selling their Xmas gear maybe it is time to think about planning for the event itself.

Many companies will now be deciding what to do for their annual Christmas jollies – An office party? A big posh ball? Maybe just a pub trip? A party can be a great way of rewarding staff

Well whatever the case, entertainment is an important component to help make the season jolly! A Close up Magician is a great way to entertain your staff or guests.

I can for instance:

  • Provide magic at the tables at your Christmas ball or dinner entertaining your guests between courses, helping the night flow, filling in those gaps when the waiting staff are going round feeding you!
  • Mix and mingle magic at a cocktail party, helping break the ice among people who may not know each other, helping people get into that festive mood proving amazing Christmas Magic.

Of course another good time to have a party is just after Christmas, in January. This can help boos that back to work blues many people will surely have, plus you may even get the location you wanted for a cheaper price! This time is usually less busy for a magician as well so there is more chance of getting your required date if you wish to book. 

Last year I was honoured in January to provide entertainment for the Total Lindsey Oil Refinery ball in sunny (!!) Cleethorpes. This was a huge ball spread over three nights and I along with a colleague provided table magic. The comments received show that the magic was hugely appreciated with people talking throughout the night about how amazing the tricks were and how they were so confused!

Until next time. Adios!

Post Holiday blues and new shows

Posted on 13th Jul 2015 15:14:19


I have just got back from my holidays.. Don't you just hate the post-holiday blues? It was a cruise in the Eastern Med. Lots to see out there! One of the highlights was the ships theatre were comedy magician Mel Mellers performed. He may not be a big name to non-magicians but to me it was a lesson in dealing with the audience and entertain with tricks that are not beyond erm me! I have performed some of his material myself in the past so nice to see it done by himself.

Hope you still remember that I have a Halloween show this year! Craig Stephenson and I have started working on ideas. Looks set to be a good show!! Anyway must go. Off to see Derren Brown in York tonight! Super excited!
