Daryl did some amazing close-up magic at my birthday party. Everyone loved it! He was also really funny - we'll definitely book him again. Thanks so much for a great night!

Daryl lifted the party to another level for us and our guests. His magic was astounding but what was even better was the way he floated around the room, connecting with every group, making them laugh and enabling them to connect with each other. I've seen a few decent magicians at weddings and work events but none of them could hold a candle to Daryl. We feel so lucky that we were able to book him and we heartily recommend his services to anyone.

Daryl was a joy to deal with, not only is he a fantastic magician but his wit and comedy had us in stitches. I will have no hesitation in booking him again and would thoroughly recommend him to add the perfect touch to any event.

Incredible service from an incredible person. I would hire this gent for my next party just as an engaging conversationalist; the mind-blowing magic was a bonus.
- Do you do open-air acts?Yes
- How long is the act?Varies depending on number of guests and running order of event. I have performed for 20 minutes one day and 3 hours the next.
- What type of magic do you performClose up magic and mind reading.
- Will your magic suit my event?Almost certainly. Close up magic, performed well, is incredibly versatile. I have performed at every type of event from trade shows to rambunctious student parties.
- How many people will you perform for?Anything from tens to thousands. The largest event I have performed at is perhaps a festival for 1500 guests in Fife, though if you would like everyone at an event of such scale to see close up magic it is advisable to hire more than one magician.
