Services From Alex Sladman
Hi, I’m Alex Sladman and here are 3 things I can do for your next event:
- Bring people together and quickly break the ice between them with engaging close up magic
- Make your event stand out by filling it with moments of astonishment that make your guests feel like kids again
- Create a magical atmosphere making sure that attendees will remember what a great time they had at your event long after it is over
How do I make this happen?
Step 1: Approach groups or tables of people and politely introduce myself
Step 2: Use a combination of sleight of hand, misdirection and charming personality to create magical experiences
Step 3: Encourage more people around me to join by involving them in the performance
Step 4: This group is now having a great time and bonding over a unique experience they have just shared
Step 5: Time to move on to the next group and entertain more people!
Feel free to contact me with any questions and let's add a touch of magic to your event!

Alex was fantastic!!
We booked him for a private function with only 12 guests and he kept us mesmerised for a whole hour. It was the highlight of our evening and i am happy to recommend him. Not only this but he was likeable, easy to get on with and very punctual.

Alex provided amazing entertainment for my husband’s 50th birthday celebrations! He has an incredible ability to do impossible things right in front of your eyes and made it a really memorable night for everyone that was there. We can highly recommend him! Thank you Alex!

Alex performed at Restaurant Bar & Grill in Leeds last week and was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. Very friendly and professional, he amazed our guests throughout the duration of the booking with the tricks he performed. We will definitely be using Alex again and I would highly recommend him.

Wow… what can I say? Alex was an absolute dream and really did tick every box! I was looking for a magician who could do close-up card magic for my dads birthday. I wanted a magician who could approach the different groups of guests rather than an all-eyes-on-me performance. I thought it would be a simple task to find someone, but it proved to be really difficult to find anyone within budget who could not only do close-up magic, but who was skilled, professional and approachable. A lot of those I found came across in their promo videos as either extremely cheesy/cringe or the total opposite - straight faced and completely unapproachable. I was about to give up hope but decided to have one last Google and that’s when I came across Alex. First of all, he was very responsive and asked all the right questions to make sure he could provide exactly what we wanted. He even asked if he could bring along his photographer who would provide us photos on email for free (I don’t think this was a standard procedure, we just got lucky!). You never know what to expect when you’ve never seen them live before and as “chief party planner” I was slightly anxious, but Alex was simply fantastic. He exceeded my expectations and managed to gel the different groups of guests together who wouldn’t otherwise have engaged with one another. Alex really played a vital role in making the party a success and blew the minds of everyone, from children to 80+ year olds! A real crowd pleaser, highly likeable, and a very skilled, reliable magician who goes above & beyond. If you’re still wondering whether to book him or not, multiple people contacted us for his details after the party to book him for theirs. For me, that was the most telling way to know I made the right choice in booking Alex!

Alex was great at our wedding; we managed to book him last minute after Covid scuppered some of our other plans. He was great at getting everything organised at the last minute with us. All of the guests loved him. He even went the extra mile and stuck around for a little longer for us so we got to see some of his magic when we got back from having our photos taken.

I would 100% recommend Alex for any event. We booked him for our company client Xmas party and he was fantastic. He worked the room really well, did some amazing magic and everyone was wowed by him! Really easy to deal with in terms of booking and payment too! Can not recommend enough! Thanks
Do you do open-air acts?
The answer would be yes most of the time, but please confirm with me before booking.
How long is the act?
2 hours is the most popular option; however, I have performed for anywhere between 30 minutes and 4 hours before.
What type of magic do you perform
While I specialise in card magic, you will find me performing with a variety of other objects including coins, rubber bands, smartphones and even your minds!
Will your magic suit my event?
While all my magic is kid friendly and I welcome everyone to participate, it is mostly targeted at an adult audience. Therefore, if you are considering booking me for a kids party, I recommend looking for a specialised kids entertainer instead.
How many people will you perform for?
There are no limits for the number of people at your event; however, to ensure the up-close personal magical experience for your guests, I usually perform to groups of no more than 8-10 people at a time. So if you are expecting more than 60 attendees, I recommend booking me for at least 2 hours to make sure most of the guests get to experience a little bit of magic.
Why should our clients choose you?
Because I care. I care about making your event better. I care about bringing smiles to people's faces. I care about bringing wonder and creating memories. And I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee to prove it (see my website).
