Magician in York For Weddings, Parties and Events - Close up and Table Magic

Magician Yorkshire

Strolling, close-up magic for your drinks reception
I will mix and mingle with your guests during your party or pre-dinner drinks reception. The effects I do are close-up and personal, often happening in the hands of the spectator. I will approach small groups and introduce myself as your magician for the event and offer to show them some magic. If there are any guests at your event who look as if they are on the edge of things I will make a particular point of trying to get them involved. If there are children at your event the magic usually draws them in like a magnet and I have fun things to hand out which they can take away and try. Think of this as an ice-breaker session. By the time your guests sit down to eat, hopefully most of them will be aware of who I am and be ready for some serious fun!

Table magic for your wedding breakfast or dinner function
I will perform whilst your guests enjoy dinner at each table. The magic is close up and the effects are different to the mix and mingle session. I'm aiming to build the excitement levels with increasing high impact effects. The best effects are of course reserved for the top table. Sometimes I may find a suitable helper like the young lad above in the checked shirt. Together we went round tables performing a card trick and I let him take the applause for it.

In terms of scale, I can cater for a small intimate group in your own home or perform to 100+ people in a banquet setting over the course of several hours.

My aim is to ensure that you and your guests have fun and are entertained. I am not out to prove anything personally. If I do get caught out then its really no big deal. I will not set out to embarrass anyone - the whole idea of what I do is that everyone is there to have fun and enjoy the magic.

I feel I must email you with regards to your superb displays at our wedding, held at the Crown Hotel on the 11th October 2014. You really enhanced the day with magic, and tricks from noon until early evening. I have received so many positive comments about your magic on the day, and as you know Fiona and I were mesmerised. Once again many thanks. Dean & Fiona.
Thank you so much for coming to our wedding reception and performing magic tricks throughout. You added so much fun and entertainment to the day and I'll never figure out the magic! Jake is still talking about 'the magician' and so many guests told us how much they enjoyed you.
Thank you so much for coming so last minute as well and for being so relaxed about how long you'd stay - you stayed until the perfect time and we are so glad you were able to do it on 4th May 2013. Love Beth and David XXX
Thank you so much for making our wedding such a great success! Everyone LOVED your magic (and hated it too trying to figure out how you did it!). You certainly blew us away with the £5 in the Kiwi fruit!’ Lousie Boyle August 2011
Just wanted to say thank you very much for everything. You were one of the top highlights of our day and it was a pleasure to share our special day with you. The video is absolutely fantastic- thank you so very much for this. We really do appreciate it and watch it almost every day at the moment! I know that our guests really enjoyed your tricks and Ian and I were certainly blown away by the tricks you did for us. We would certainly highly recommend you to anybody who is getting married or even having an event and may contact you in the future if we have any events of our own!

I saw a magician once on a cruise ship and he was good but you are twice as good as he was.
