Magician York for corporate events



The Holiday Inn

  • « 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! »

  • « 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!! »


  • How much do you charge for close up magic?

    Close up magician prices.
    Prices depend on several factors such as how many people you have at your party, location etc. I will quote you a fixed price for your event. I do not charge by the hour - I like to keep things simple.

  • Is your magic suitable for children?

    My magical entertainment is primarily aimed at entertaining the adults but I have puzzles and tricks for young ones too and even very young children may appreciate some of the effects.

  • What sort of tricks do you do in a walk around and table setting?

    Mainly effects that I can carry in my pockets. They usually involve things like coins, playing cards, cutlery, phones, dice, cords and laces - that sort of thing. I especially like to perform effects with items that end up in unusual places or mind reading type effects that appear impossible.

  • Do you do anything dangerous?

    No - I don't use fire or anything hazardous in my magical performance.

Strolling Magic

I will mix and mingle with your guests in a party setting, or as your guests enjoy their pre-dinner drinks. The effects I do are close-up and personal, often happening in the hands of the spectator.

If there are children at your event the magic usually draws them in like a magnet. 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, most of them will be aware of who I am and be ready for some serious fun!

Table Magician

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.

I can cater for a small intimate group at your home. Or I can 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.
