Thank you very much Martin. What a great evening we all had with your magic tricks. All our guests really enjoyed it and were astonished that it was so close up. Great value for money, will not hesitate to use you or recommend you in the future. We have posted a comment for you too. Elaine and Richard Penley-Martin 29 Nov 14 at the Palm Court Hotel, Scarborough.
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!

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your magic at our wedding on the 21st of February.

Hello Martin. This is a BIG THANKYOU for entertaining us all last Saturday.  Everyone enjoyed your magic.  I personally thought that you were amazing!

You are extremely talented - I will be hanging onto the 10p piece as a keepsake of the wonderful evening - you were great value for money. Kind regards Phyllis
