What event planners say about our suppliers


A definite 5 out of 5!!!! Mark was fantastic at our engagement party doing his close up table magic. He wowed everyone with his sleight of hand skills and dexterity. He had everyone talking about him all evening. Could not recommend Mark highly enough for magic at any event. A true legend and a definite recommendation for future bookings at our events.


Very happy with the service. Engaging performer. Would book again.


It is the 2ndtime we have seen Alex and he didn't disappoint. A brilliant performance is guaranteed and will keep u talking about it long after he has "left the building". He can adapt his style to suit all tastes. I can thoroughly recommend him for a private or corporate event. A credit to the profession.






How to choose a Illusionist in London for your event



One of the top alternative party entertainment options, sure to bring a hint of mystery and wonder to your event, is a magician, and there are plenty to be found around London. If you’re looking to find a magician for your next party, there are some key things to consider before you get deep into your research:

You need to establish a budget for your night’s entertainment, and be realistic about what can be achieved for that price.

Do you want your magician to work the room, performing close-up magic tricks to small groups of guests, or will they be up on a stage for everyone to watch together, perhaps with a few “willing volunteers” from the audience?

Does your venue have a stage and backstage space for your magic act to get ready and rest around their set?

By establishing your criteria and budget before you begin your search, you’ll be able to quickly shortlist a couple of magician acts for your party, by asking all the right questions; then it’s down to you to decide which performer will be the best fit for your event.
