Magician for Party

Birthday Party Magician

Are you looking for a birthday party magician, a Christmas party magician, a magician for a private party, magic for a ball, a Christening or any celebration.

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.

Party Magicianfor Smaller Parties

I have also performed as a close up magician at small intimate gatherings. This usually works best if I bring a small table and do a stand up show. This can last for anything up to a couple of hours and everyone will have the chance to get involved in the act and will get to see lots of magic.

Here is some feedback for a parlour show I did at a small private party with a Mexican theme:

    « 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. »

  • My latest young assistant and one of many spectators she tried the trick on

Julia Foulger's 65th birthday party

Julia Foulger's 65th birthday party at Melodies in York

"I hired Martin for my 65th birthday party and he was brilliant. There was a lot going on because we had a live band. Martin fitted around everything else which must have been difficult. He was punctual, unobtrusive and very professional. My little granddaughter was mesmerised when he taught her a card trick and let her take the credit when showing it to others. One of my guests 3 days later said, “I’m still wondering how on earth he did that trick with the kiwi fruit and the £10 note.” I would recommend Martin unreservedly for any occasion."
