I just wanted to say a massive thank you for today. The kids have never seen anything like that before so it was a real experience for them. I have some fab pics of the children in absolute awe of you. Thanks a million. All the feedback has been wonderful.

We have hired Stephen several times over the years. He has been a featured artist at our Easter Farmers Market and our Summer in the Park events. Most recently, he performed four different shows at our park event and he was very well received at every show. I have no problem in highly recommending Stephen for your children's party or any event where you want a children's magician. ** Written on behalf of the Friends of Cale Green Park.

Stephen was excellent and kept all the children fully engaged the whole time. He made Sienna feel very special and even noticed when she was a bit upset, responding by playing a game where she was the boss!

Stephen did such an amazing job at our wedding. He was there to keep us entertained all day and into the evening and did not stop the entire time. Our guests were entertained the whole time and Stephen has so many tricks up his sleeve he caters for all audiences. We had such great feedback nobody had a bad word to say. You won’t go wrong if you hire Stephen for your event. THANK YOU Stephen! X
