Party Magician at the Biltmore in York

Magician for Party

Birthdays, Christmas parties, private parties, balls, a christening party or any other celebration - all can be enhanced by some close up magic.

Hiring a close up magician for your party can generate a huge buzz of excitement to really get your party started.

For company parties hiring a corporate magician can be a wonderful way to entertain your staff and customers.

I often get asked to perform at someone's birthday party and I have literally performed for all ages from 4 to 100.

Magic is an ideal birthday entertainment idea as it appeals to nearly everyone regardless of age.

The magic I do as a private party magician is aimed at a family audience though some tricks will have more appeal for adults and some will have more appeal for children so I always bring along a whole variety of material to satisfy any audience I may find.

Sometimes children may latch onto me and I may find that I have an enthusiastic helper. I'm always open to the idea of teaching some basic trick to an enthusiastic accomplice and then taking them round tables to perform and let them get the applause. For me its all about having fun and giving the gift of magical fun to my audience as well.

    « Absolutely excellent service from Martin. Everyone was thoroughly entertained and we had just the most enjoyable evening. First class magic performed throughout at the tables, and cabaret show at the end with audience participation. Martin pitched the show and tone of the whole evening just right, and the magic was simply amazing!! No hesitation in recommending him for any occasion, you will not be disappointed. »

    « Thank you Martin! Your tricks are amazing and when you are so close up it is baffling to know how you have done it?! Fantastic! Friendly, entertaining and great attention to detail! Thank you for remembering my request for a rabbit trick! Really made me smile! :-) »
