Wow! I would highly recommend Chris, he was the magician for my 30th Birthday Party and had all my guests in stiches, after they said it was like watching TV because they were totally fixated. This guy is so professional and organised...my party flowed like an absolute dream. All the guests were so impressed!

Great experience with Chris from start to finish. Communication all throughout the booking and organising process was fab. He turned up on the night, on time, dressed to impress and ready to entertain. I couldn't fault the act at all and everyone was impressed. I have to admit i had my doubts about how it would work at a house party and not a 'venue' but they were banished instantly. I have had nothing but great feedback from all the guests and it helped to make the night really memorable. Thanks!!

Absolutely amazing! We booked Chris for our wedding on Sept 16th 2017 and we and our guests were blown away! His magic really is something else! And a great personality to go with it! I couldn't recommend him enough for weddings! He will have your guests talking about it for a long time! Thanks so much!
Do you do open-air acts?
I can perform outside as long as the weather is kind! The flexibility of Close Up magic allows me to perform directly from my pockets so anywhere goes!
How long is the act?
Bookings are generally 2 or 3 hours. For small gatherings, a bespoke package can be arranged. Let me know your numbers and I'll be able to give a better indication of how long would be suitable.
What type of magic do you perform
Kick-ass magic! You want more? My close up act is a bullet proof way to ensure amazing reactions. I utilise everyday objects where possible to perform mind blowing mini illusions. Combining sleight of hand, mind reading and theatrical pickpocketing, wrapped within a comedy blanket! The magic is best viewed at close quarters - with adequate lighting and minimal noise!
Will your magic suit my event?
Magic is more versatile than a Swiss army knife! If you have guests, magic can be many things: An ice-breaker A focal point Great entertainment A talking point Memorable
How many people will you perform for?
Using the Magic Table format (ask me about this), I can generate a fairly large crowd but ideally, Close up magic suits small numbers of around 5-10 guests. As a rough guide, one magician can cover 80-100 guests over a two hour period if performing around the tables during a sit down meal.
