Darren is an ABSOLUTE star! We hired him to entertain our guests with some close up magic at our wedding reception in a pub in Camden, and he came through 100%! Most of our guests didn't know each other, and so Darren was great to break the ice by bringing together people to have a laugh (and be amazed) with his incredible magic! He has a wonderful patter, easily got people talking to him and each other and was great at remembering names so he could really get people engaged! He did one card trick for my husband and I that I am going to puzzle over until the end of time. And we have a great souvenir of it! If we have another party anytime soon we will definitely hire Darren again!
