I have been performing magic at weddings, parties and corporate events now for over 10 years in York and the North East, including Wakefield.
In my magic I use cards, coins, borrowed rings, borrowed change, borrowed phones, mind reading effects etc etc.
I am a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
My goal is to entertain in a warm and FUN manner. I try and make the magic as participatory as possible and get people of all ages involved in the magic.
Why do I do magic? Money is a very small part of it. I have often been compared to Dynamo but I charge only a tiny fraction of what he charges. I am also not interested in becoming a celebrity. I do it because I love the joy in the faces of my audience and the reactions that seeing close up magic done well can bring.
I had worked with Martin on a number of events in the past and when we booked our wedding I jumped at the chance to share his magic with our guests. He didn't disappoint. From the beginning of our wedding planning journey, he was professional and reassuring and couldn't do enough to help make our day especially magical. He definitely provided a service over and above - capturing additional moments on camera and assisting with the running of the day alongside his impressive skills as a magician. We are immensely grateful. See you at the many birthdays and anniversaries to come - the new Mr and Mrs Hampshire!Google Review
We initially hired Martin to video our wedding and only found out when we met him that he also did magic. This wasn't something I had intended to have at the wedding but I am so glad I did. Our guests loved being entertained during the drinks reception when we were having the 'formal' photos done and again after the wedding breakfast and the tricks he performed really were jaw dropping!!
Martin came to my 16th (in Leap Year) birthday party. I can't praise him enough. He enhanced the whole day with his extraordinary skills. Lovely to be with, brilliant performer and he can clearly read and understand his audience. I highly recommend him for any sized event. He just fits in perfectly. Everyone loved him. Thank you Martin!Google Review
Martin was fantastic at our party and I was so pleased I booked him. He has a great manner with people. It was only a small event and he handled it brilliantly, circulating well and entertaining people without it becoming a big magic show. I can thoroughly recommend him, the magic is excellent and my guests loved it.Google Review
Martin really enhanced the drinks reception and wedding breakfast by entertaining the guests in small groups or at their tables. He started as soon as the ceremony was over and stayed until the band was ready to start after the meal. People loved his gentle style of magic, they were fascinated by how he achieved his magic and whole tables were giving him a round of applause. What Martin says on his website is exactly what he does. He was well worth his fee-I can’t recommend him more highly.Google Review
