Amazing Stephen was true to his name - ‘Amazing!’
He captured the children’s concentration right from the start and they were excited throughout the performance and got involved in all aspects! Even the adults voiced how fantastic he was and he absolutely was - will definitely have him again - thank you ‘Amazing Stephen’ 😊

Stephen was absolutely amazing . Children and the adults alike really enjoyed his show . His Magic tricks were amazing and spellbinding .
Many of the guests took his details to book him for their own party. i think that speaks for itself !

It’s not an easy task trying to entertain a small group of pupils with severe learning difficulties as you don’t get the audience participation but Stephen did a really good job of keeping them engaged and most of them found him mesmerising and very funny.
Do you do open-air acts?
I can happily perform outdoors, as long as there is a gazebo to perform under to keep me and the audience dry or from getting sunburn.
How long is the act?
My most popular show packages are the one-hour magic & puppet show, two-hour party package with games, and three-hours with a circus skills workshop.
What type of magic do you perform
I perform all types of magic from close-up table-hopping, reception entertainment, a full birthday party show, or a stage / cabaret performance on the big stage.
Will your magic suit my event?
Magic will suit almost any event.
How many people will you perform for?
I have no minimum or maximum guests. Invite as many as will fit in the room!
How long do you need to set up?
I require 15 minutes to set-up the one-hour show. And 30 minutes for the 2 or 3 hour show.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
Yes. Through Equity.
What experience do you have working with children?
As well as being a retired high-school teacher, I have been performing professional magic shows for children for over 20 years.
Are you DBS checked?
Yes. It can be viewed online at request.
Do you limit the number of children that we can invite to our child's Birthday party?
I have no limit; invite as many as you can!
My one-hour comedy magic & puppet show is catered to your audience. I pick the best tricks & puppets based on their age, space available and number in attendance to provide the best show possible.
For younger children I have puppet routines with a turtle, crocodile or monkey puppet. For older children I might bend a metal fork, solve a Rubik cube in seconds, or read their minds.
In the two-hour party package we follow the show with party games such as Group Dances, Musical Bumps, Play Parachute, Pass-the-Parcel, the Conga and Scavenger hunt. All the games have been adapted to not eliminate any children and I provide the prizes for the games along with the music. If they are eating during the party, I continue entertaining with a guess the theme song game or making everyone a balloon animal (depending on how many guests there are).
I can also provide a third hour of entertainment which includes a circus skills workshop.
